Nick Normal

Sunday | 6:40pm | North Stage

There’s a special throwback charm at play on Nick Normal’s 2017 record Variety Show Vol. 1! Steeped in a woozy world of absurdist punk rock, Normal (real name Nick Barnaby) conjures the very best of underground weirdos like Axemen while paying obvious homage to icons like Devo. Songs as deliciously catchy as “Donut Jingle” are so sweet they should almost be outlawed. But then we wouldn’t get to hear it, and that would be a tremendous bummer. RJP
