One of the Azalea City’s premiere underground music venues is actually on the second floor of a restaurant. The crowd upstairs at the Blind Mule in the summer is typically a hot, sweaty mass, swilling beer and moving to the sounds of truly unique acts like Hibachi Stranglers, perhaps Mobile’s longest-running punk outfit. Comprising underground vets Neil Byrne (guitar/vocals), Matt Martin (bass) and Ernie Lindsey (drums), Hibachi Stranglers are relentless with own brand of garage rock-laden punk.
Also on the bill is Ghetto Ghouls from Austin, Texas, currently touring in support of its debut album, “Collisions.” Ghetto Ghouls has given the public a taste of this album with the single “Hezbollah.” The group’s vehement style of garage punk should make it a perfect match for the Hibachi Stranglers.
While Gainesville’s Eve of November will be a departure from the punk rock theme, the group won’t diminish the evening’s adrenaline-filled vibe. Its upbeat indie rock features multi-instrumentalists who maintain high sonic energy throughout their sets.
