Reptile Room | 7:00 PM
Reptile Room is an Electropop trio based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Consisting of siblings Sami and Sean Michaelsen of the Atlanta-based rock group Alchemy and longtime friend Bill Zimmerman, their respective journeys both separate and together over the years led for them to come together in 2017 to record and release their debut self-titled EP in that same year to much positive response and curiosity as to what is to come. That curiosity then turned into excitement in 2018 as the trio continued carving out their own aural path by having their song "Home" being placed during an episode of E!'s "Total Bellas," rocking various venues of ATL including Terminal West, Vinyl @ Center Stage, Bonfire, and The Vista Room with the likes of Stokeswood, Dreambrother, Ashley Walls, Prisca, and The Pussywillows as well as appearing on Balcony TV and being nominated for "Live Band of the Year" in 2018's The Culture Awards.

In addition to the awe-inspiring performances and accolades, 2018 also saw the release of follow-up singles "Crown" and "Vegas" as well as Post Malone's single "Better Now" getting the Reptile Room treatment. Now in 2019, the momentum for Reptile Room isn't slowing down anytime soon with the tease of a new single "Talk," and more to come, without a doubt the trio will continue to light up the stage and electrify the crowd in the best way they know how. The RR way. more >>>
