Stuff to do: 2012, week 3

So what’s going on this week, you ask?

Thursday, the Organic Hippie/104.9 The Gump night at It’ll Do Tavern doesn’t include a band. This week, they’re holding an open jam. If you’re a musician and have been wanting to play in front of people, here’s your chance. No cover charge. Just bring your gear and join in with the others.

Friday, Hail the Titans is heading to Pensacola, Fla. to play at The Handlebar for the first time. It’s been awhile since we’ve been to Pensacola (and an even longer time since I’ve played at The Handlebar… I was in Easy Kiddo at the time.)

If you’re in Montgomery on Friday, you need to be at Head on the Door. Breaking Aim and The Rhythm is releasing a DVD that includes live footage from at least three shows. Also, The Great American Breakdown is making their Montgomery debut. Both bands are really, really good.

Also on Friday, AlleyBAR is hosting The Revivalists, a band from New Orleans. Click here to see a video from Paste Magazine of them on the beach in Pensacola.

On Saturday, Hail the Titans is heading to The Squeaky Lizard in Oceans Springs, Miss. We’re playing with No Fuego and Unicorn ScrewDriver.

In Montgomery, Head on the Door is hosting Johnny’s in the Basement (from Carrollton, Ga.) and Creep List.

So there you have it. Make plans. Support independent artists.

Also, if you didn’t hear yesterday, Birmingham’s Secret Stages announced 20 artists for this year’s festival. One of the five Alabama-based bands on the list is Hail the Titans. Read more here.
