Tickets: $10, via Midnight Rodeo’s website
Two local favorites, past and present, will take to the Midnight Rodeo stage to showcase two different yet wonderful homegrown musical styles. Local hip-hop artist Sonny Bama will serve as the evening’s headliner. Bama’s smooth baritone flow and Mobile-centric lyrics have made him a hometown hero among local hip-hop enthusiasts. His single “From the Bottom” (featuring Ryan Balthrop) made its way into the hearts and ears of many locals. Bama will accent his set with a live band featuring Gregg Fells.
Before Bama takes the stage, the audience will witness the return of AllGetOut. This Azalea City alt. country outfit formulated its sound in the days when the genre was distinctively alternative. This group concocted a mix of Southern-fried rock riddled with overtones of classic country and rockabilly to create its full-length album “Southern Business.”
Founding members Charlie Alexander (bass/vocals), Mark Loftin (guitar) and Albert Robinson (drums) are also bringing in local guitarist P.T. Marston as a special guest for this show. Marston’s legacy boasts stints with Turbo Crab and Johnny No.
