Atlanta-based indie-rock band Omni are playing two shows in the New York area this weekend.

Sat. Aug. 20 || Shea Stadium purchase tickets here.

Sun. Aug. 21 || Mercury Lounge purchase tickets here.

The band was started by guitarist Frankie Broyles, and former Carnivores members, vocalist/bassist Philip Frobos, and drummer Billy Mitchell. Their debut album Deluxe is chock-full of tightly wound, lo-fi guitar jams that channel the late 70s and early 80s.

Omni brings you back to an era where any sane person was reeling from the unfulfilled promise of the Space Age and the looming threat of “Morning in America.” It pushes the roots of rock & roll to its limits, still remaining in vogue. Deluxe serves as a fresh reminder that rock music can work outside of blues rooted, formulaic progressions without playing it safe behind a wall of effects.

Check out Omni’s rad visuals for “Wire” below.
