The Merry Widow will welcome the weekend with a trio of indie bands from disparate points in the Southeast.
Houston indie pop band Birthday Club will headline this lineup with its concoction of catchy lyrics, heavenly synth and energetic delivery. Birthday Club captured its modern rock sounds on the “Lighten Up” EP, engineered by Grammy Award winner Erik Wofford (Explosions in the Sky, The Black Angels).
Atlanta’s MyFever is touring in support of its latest EP, “Born for Spaces.” For its three-member lineup, MyFever creates a huge sound. The band’s grand indie rock ballads should be crowd pleasers.
Fairhope’s Strange Her will add its eclectic indie rock to the mix, performing tracks from its full-length debut, “Wrong Kind of Mermaid.” This album blends influences ranging from emo to indie. While overtones from various genres abound, Strange Her does a great job in pulling them together for 10 cohesive tracks of modern alt. rock.
