Reptar

8:30 p.m. Friday, April 6. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.

Reptar

With just an EP to its credit, Athens, Georgia, quartet Reptar landed on numerous best of 2011 lists. The band's debut full-length, Body Faucet, will likely taste like prime rib for the hype monster. It is an album of indie-rock cocktail parties that reference Vampire Weekend and the Arcade Fire, making the band kindred spirits with Ra Ra Riot, although Reptar's take on chamber pop is more expressive. The group is not exactly unearthing new territory, but it is taking a sound that has gradually sneaked into stadium venues to the ground level where it can be enjoyed without binoculars.

Fun Fact: Its touring guitarist Jace Bartet won second place at the 2006 US Air Guitar Championships.
