An eclectic blast of regional sounds will be rolling into downtown Mobile this Saturday, with Skate Mountain Records sending a twofold delegation from its lineup.
Singer-songwriter Abe Partridge’s set will be filled with offbeat lyric poetry delivered with a raw voice seasoned with experience. Partridge will also give his crowd a look into his more alternative side with a set from his longtime underground rock project, The Psych Peas (Psychedelic Peacocks).
Skate Mountain artists The Red Clay Strays will hit the stage ready to have a good time with the group’s robust, electrifying live show filled with modern Southern rock and alt. country. The Strays have been paying dues on the road with regular tour excursions, but the band’s time at Studio 74 suggests fans might soon be getting a long-awaited album.
Mississippi’s Della Memoria returns to Mobile with its soothing, clean synth rock sound. This duo will be performing in support of its latest EP, “The Ebb.” While modern synth music tend to concentrate on more danceable aspects, Della Memoria’s ethereal quality mixes sweet vocals and wholehearted arrangements, a rare musical commodity on the Gulf Coast.
