Nihilist Cheerleader - (Set time: 12:00 AM)
Nihilist Cheerleader
The local punk foursome—for whom the term is thankfully often more descriptive than prescriptive—is notable for its dynamic vocals, which are creatively tuneful, especially on tracks like “Date.” Lyrically, Nihilist Cheerleader is strong, with lines like “Maybe when I’m silent/ I’m saying something just as loud” (from “Retro Porn”) and “I wanna walk home by myself/ But the night’s already here” (from “Walk Home Alone”). Musically, the EP is a bit more polished and diverse than the group’s Parkour EP from last summer but still derives its essentials from four-chord, early-to-mid-‘90s West Coast indie punk. --Flagpole 2016

Recently I sat down with Flynne Collins, the driving force behind one of Athens’ more explosive young punk bands and discussed changes within the band, Athens punk, and her Riot Grrrl influences. Collins grew up in the Athens scene, but with Nihilist Cheerleader’s new EP, Truth or Dare, she has asserted herself as a visible force among young local artists. --Immersive ATL 2016
