Mobile’s music scene has grown a little bigger with a band with an extremely distinctive sound. Glass Nights is comprised of Brittany Mistich and Peter Workman. Recently, this duo released their debut single “Another Time.”
This track is a masterpiece of minimalist electronica. Steady beats bounce across a flowing field of synthesizer. Mitsich’s vocals float across this reality with an ethereal nature that is the perfect complement for this song’s instrumentation. So far, Glass Nights’ initial tease could be the harbinger of great things from Mistich and Workman.
Mobile picked for Alice Cooper film
Alice Cooper is no stranger to the Gulf Coast. Whether performing at the Saenger or the casinos, Cooper always brings out a legion of dedicated fans to witness the horrific madness of his live show. This could be the reason that Mobile has been chosen as one of only 250 cities to screen the first-ever “doc opera” — “Super Duper Alice Cooper.” On Wednesday, April 30, “Super Duper Alice Cooper” will be shown at the Wynsong 16 (785 Schillinger Road) at 7:30 p.m.
This movie tells the story of Vincent Furnier. Over time, the film shows this son of a preacher man undergo a metamorphosis into Alice Cooper. This tale is highlighted by archival footage mingled with animation and set to the sounds of a full-blown rock opera. Cooper does his share of autobiographical storytelling, but Elton John, Iggy Pop, John Lydon (Sex Pistols) and Dee Snider also present their side of Alice Cooper’s history.
“Super Duper Alice Cooper” is the creation of producers Scot MacFadyen and Sam Dunn (“Iron Maiden: Flight 666”, “Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage”) and filmmaker Reginald Harkema. Advanced tickets are on sale now.
