Three bands to play at The Bishop



Omni will be playing a show, with Olden Yolk and Spissy, at 9 p.m. May 8 at The Bishop.

Omni is an Atlanta band that draws inspiration from Devo, Television, Josef K and Magazine, adding a no-frills lo-fi sound of its own, according to the band's Spotify page.

The group was formed by ex-Deerhunter guitarist Frankie Broyles and ex-Carnivores bassist and vocalist Philip Frobos, who were later joined by more ex-Carnivores members — Billy Mitchell on drums and Nathan Higgins for production.

Omni released its debut album, “Deluxe,” in 2016 and its sophomore album, “Multi-Task," in 2017 with Trouble In Mind Records.

Omni will be joined by another band signed to Trouble In Mind, Olden Yolk. Olden Yolk is a New York-based folk-rock band led by songwriters, vocalists and multi-instrumentalists Shane Butler and Caity Shaffer. The two are joined by Dan Drohan on drums and Jesse DeFrancesco on guitar for its self-titled debut album released under Trouble In Mind Records.

An indie band from Bloomington, Spissy, consisting of Aaron Denton and Ben Lumsdaine, will also perform with the two bands at The Bishop. 

Spissy is an indie band that released its self-titled debut in 2016 with independent record label Jurassic Pop.

The show is 18+, and tickets can be bought online with TicketFly. General Admission is $10, with the option to make a charitable donation to the New Chance Arts & Literature Fund along with the order.
