The Blind Mule will host an indie rock Christmas Gulf Coast-style with three regional acts bringing their own version of Christmas cheer. Representing Pensacola, Honeygun will be bringing a sleigh-load of rock ‘n’ roll. The group will be showcasing sounds off of their debut EP “Kinetic.” Honeygun has established a melodic brand of modern rock that is quite powerful.
The crowd will get a double-show of Mobile rock beginning with Jaguarundi. This four-piece’s rock sound is riddled with punk overtones. It is best witnessed on their debut effort “… Goes on the Offensive.” The album’s opening track, “One Ticket,” eases the listener into the world of Jaguarundi before a wave of intense vocals and instrumentation. Other songs, such as “Kick in the Teeth,” are impressive punk anthems in the tradition of Against Me.
Mobile’s The Volks will also be performing at this pre-Christmas celebration. As the opener for the Benjamin Booker show on Halloween, this group thrilled the audience and gathered a number of new fans. Their brand of garage rock brings mingles classic sounds with modern underground rock.
