Hail the Titans are finalists in the Knucklehead Strings YouTube contest. You might remember our “Grilling with Knucklehead Strings” video… well, now there are three finalists.
Click here to see all three finalist videos, and please vote for Hail the Titans.
In other news, I caught the Hematovore and Kill Baby Kill show Friday. If you haven’t heard these bands, you should.
My friend (and official Hail the Titans guitar tech) Zane Tremontana converted my old Telecaster into an Esquire, and it sounds and plays great. If you need any guitar work – wiring, pickup change, professional set-up… get in touch with him. He does great work.
The relic job was done by Adam Davila with some assistance by Trey Baldwin (Treybot Model One.)
OK… so what’s going on this week?
On Wednesday, Steve Hall Productions has Yelawolf performing at WorkPlay in Birmingham.
Thursday, BPM will be at It’ll Do Tavern in Montgomery.
On Friday, Distant Kin returns to the Tipping Point in the Hampstead community.
Also on Friday, Head on the Door is hosting my friends Bearhead and Refuse the Fall. You already know not to miss Bearhead, so please come see them and welcome Refuse the Fall to town, as it’s been a long time since they’ve been here.
On Saturday, Organic Hippie is hosing a Record Swap Extravaganza. This goes from 1 to 6 p.m. and according to the event info, Zaxby’s is providing food.
Starting at 4 p.m. on Saturday is “The Iron Roll,” a roller derby event that will raise money for the A. Skate Foundation in Birmingham, which helps children with autism.
The roller derby event is at the Ed Teague Arena at Garrett Coliseum and has skaters from all five Alabama derby teams (Auburn, Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile and Montgomery.)
The after party (also at Ed Teague Arena) will feature music by Hail the Titans. This may be our last hometown show for awhile, so come hear some music and support a great cause.
Also on Saturday is the …and the Lawyers CD release show featuring the Dirty Lungs. This show is at Head on the Door. (Read The Local Scene’s review of their album, “WWBMJD?” here.)
In Birmingham, the show to check out Saturday is Bearhead at The Nick with the Dirty Clergy and Rian Adkinson.
Yes, that’s a lot of information. You’re welcome.
[UPDATE] With all the events going on this week, it seems I have overlooked yet another event going on this Saturday. AlleyBAR is hosting a talented Americana style musician who hails from Athens, Ga. – Lera Lynn. If you’re into bands like Wilco or The Civil Wars, you’ll probably dig her music.
