Cindy Wilson (of The B-52s!)
Cindy Wilson is a vocalist, songwriter and a founding member of new wave rock band The B-52s.

Cindy Wilson’s current endeavor is as far from The B-52s as one can possibly imagine. Rather than shouting from the rooftops in "The World’s Greatest Party Band", Wilson swoons and whispers over swirls of subtle psychedelia, Quincy Jones-era strings, and pulsing synths.

With echoes of Air, Bjork, Tame Impala, and Gary Numan, the band refers to its infectious brand of new wave electro-pop as "Turbo Chill,” a sonic synopsis offered by the hosts of Adult Swim’s Stupid Morning Bullshit following the release of Wilson’s solo debut EP, Sunrise. Two years in the making, Change offers a challenge to fans of the iconic B-52’s, while cultivating a new generation of listeners.

After four decades on the road internationally with The B-52s, Change represents a full circle for Wilson. Tapping into her own local stock in order to start anew, Cindy returned to the same town that nurtured her own creative roots: Athens, Georgia. Change features a “native” cast of Athenian musicians including Ryan Monahan (Easter Island, Monahan), producer/engineer Suny Lyons (PacificUV, Dream Boat), Lemuel Hayes (Ola Moon, PacificUV), and Marie Davon (powerkompany).

“It’s very different from a B-52’s show,” Wilson recently told PopMatters. “I get to play around with different ideas and beautiful melodies. I don’t have to yell in a rock voice. I think you can get an emotional depth in the types of rooms we’re playing that you can’t find in larger rooms.”
Pylon Reenactment Society
When people talk about the beginnings of the music scene in Athens, GA the discussion usually begins “The B-52’s, R.E.M, ....” Those who know will continue the list, “Pylon.” They were every Athens band’s favorite Athens band. Their musical naïveté, southern upbringing, art school smarts, and house-party roots exploded together to create something quite improbably amazing, hitting the listener on mental, physical, and spiritual levels simultaneously. On the surface, their angular guitar parts and propulsive rhythm section had something in common with UK post-punk bands like Gang of Four and PiL. But Pylon was more fun and less studied. And they had a secret weapon in Vanessa Briscoe Hay, whose inimitable vocal textures and phrasing defined the band’s sound for most listeners.

Pylon’s celebrated history came to a sudden end with the death of iconic guitarist Randy Bewley in 2009. Pylon was and always will be Vanessa, Randy Bewley, Michael Lachowski, and Curtis Crowe. It is a certainty that the band will not reform with a new guitarist.

But hey, kids. Everything is still cool! Vanessa has gathered members of Athens bands Casper & the Cookies, The Glands, and talented pianist Damon Denton to create Pylon Reenactment Society to perform for special occasions like Art Rocks Athens events and for the recent release parties for “PYLON LIVE.” Two short tours are planned this year to the Northeast and out West.
