Rising Artist - Reptar

Athens, Georgia. The town that gave us REM and B52's and more recently Danger Mouse. Athens is about to be put on the map again thanks to a little band called Reptar. Now anyone who grew up in the 90's knows Reptar as the fictional dinosaur from the Rugrats cartoon, well, get ready to fall in love with a different kind of Reptar like animal. The band, who took SXSW this year by storm, have drum up a tremendous amount of buzz in the south and all the way to England as NME just named them a Radar "Band to Watch." Reptar will be touring all summer, including a stop at Lollapalooza and with their catchy and furious sound, they are worth seeing and paying attention to.
