[UPDATE: Due to severe weather, this show has unfortunately been canceled. Sorry guys!]
Fat Tuesday is upon us folks, and we’ll be damned if snow, ice, hail or sleet will keep us from partying! If you’re anything like us, Snowmagedon 2015 has your cabin fever running high, and you’re dying to get out of the house. Lucky for you, in partnership with the Acme Feed & Seed, No Country Presents is hosting a Pollstar Fat Tuesday Party featuring Halfbrass, Sol Cat, and FireKid, and it’s still on! Unfortunately, we can’t say the same for the Dr. John show at War Memorial, but hopefully he’ll reschedule, and, if you’re left with nothing to do now, come to our party. Music should start about 7 p.m., and goes until at least 11 p.m., a little later than usual. Did we mention it’s FREE?! Make sure you come ready to party, Mardi gras style.
Founded around 2003, in the style of classic New Orleans brass bands, locals Halfbrass always bring the party. They’ve traveled all over the country spreading their vibe, and members have recorded with artists like Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Charlie Peacock and Old Union, to name a few. Their live shows get everybody moving and shaking, and we can’t wait for them to help us get in the Mardi Gras mood with their funk flavored horns. Have a taste below and make sure you get there on time to enjoy their whole set.
Local indie rock darlings (and no strangers to No Country coverage) Sol Cat were one of the special guests we mentioned when we first announced this show, and, after their killer Friday the 13th show at 3rd Lindsley with Black Cadillacs, we couldn’t wait to update everyone on their appearance in our showcase. Kick the winter blues, and live it up with one of our favorite local acts, tonight!
Local, via Muscle Shoals, AL, indie singer songwriter Firekid is signed to Atlantic Records and making a name for himself near and afar. Get hip to him now, because he seems poised to explode, and will likely be spending a ton of time on the road in the near future.
Half brass, Sol Cat and Firekid will perform TONIGHT at Acme Feed & Seed. The show is 21+, music begins at 7 p.m., and, per usual, it’s totally FREE. Downtown PARKING can sometimes be an issue. However, if you’re willing to walk a few blocks, street parking is typically easy to find on the numbered avenues south of Broadway, or along Korean Veterans Blvd. Metered spaces are often free after 6 p.m.
