TOPS After-party ft Better Person, Taradactyl + Divine Interface

TOPS loves Atlanta so much. Not only are they preforming live June 15th at Masquerade (Tops / Fantasy Guys / Breathers at The Masquerade.) But they're also doing a very special DJ set for us June 16th @ Mother Bar+Kitchen. Let's keep the party going.

🎤Special Live Performance By: 🎤

Better Person (Berlin) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WljEUb0815g

"Better Person is a musical project by Berlin-based singer Adam Byczkowski. He writes pop ballads wrapped in textures evocative of slick City Pop from 1980s Japan, the dreamy experimental disco of Arthur Russell, and more recent experiments in vintage and lo-fi sonics from Dean Blunt and James Ferraro."
