I’m thinking that counting the weeks is going to get old…
Anyway, here are some things to do this week:
I admit, I have been looking forward to this one for a while – this Friday, at Head on the Door, it’s Hail the Titans and Nigredo. You’ve probably heard every member of Hail the Titans talk about this Atlanta band before, and this Friday, we’re welcoming them to Montgomery.
I was thinking about calling this “The Night of Too Many Pedals,” which would be funny except for the fact that there’s no such thing as “too many pedals.”
It’s true. If you have too many pedals to fit on your pedal board, that just means you need to build a bigger board or get a second one.
Here is one of the… seven? (including both bands)… pedal boards that will be in attendance on Friday:
Before our show, stop by the Tipping Point in the Hampstead area and hear Zac Martin. He starts at 7 p.m.
Also, our friends in The Great American Breakdown are playing with Sound and Shape at Egan’s in Tuscaloosa that night.
Saturday morning, the Alabama Appleseed Center for Law and Justice is holding the “Welcoming Alabama Campaign at Biscuit’s Stadium and the Alley downtown. They’re looking for volunteers to be photographed while holding signs “personalized value-based messages reflecting an honest statement or belief regarding immigration or multicultural acceptance.” The event goes from 8 to 10 a.m. Details here.
After you get your nap in, be sure to go to Head on the Door that night to catch The Black Racers and Skeptic? (That’s a statement, by the way. The question mark is part of the band name.) Check out the Black Racers’ self-titled album below:
[UPDATE] I didn’t see an invite for Thursday’s Distant Kin show at It’ll Do Tavern; otherwise, I would have included it above. Yeah, the Organic Hippie / 104.9 The Gump Thursday night concert series continues this week with Distant Kin. Music there generally starts around 9 p.m. No cover charge.
