Alchemy Tavern continues to focus on keeping the underground scene alive in LoDa. Once again, they are hosting a lineup featuring a variety of bands from around the Southeast. Straight out of Florida’s infamous Duval County, Black Kids has emerged on the national scene with their electronic indie pop sound. In 2008, the band broke out with their single “I’m Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance with You.”

EXB Black Kids

The song exhibited the band’s pure electro-pop sound. However, with singer Reggie Youngblood’s vocals sounding like the second coming of The Cure’s Robert Smith, he’s set the band into a category of their own.

For many years, Jamie and Katie Barrier of The Pine Hill Haints have reigned as the first couple of Alabama’s underground scene. They will be bringing their latest respective projects to Joachim Street. Jamie will be performing with The Invisible Teardrops, which has been described as “poignant with dark undertones and enough beats to make anyone’s butt shake.” Katie’s band She-Wolf will bring a dose of garage rock that is “so haunting yet so fun.”
