With a steady lineup of eclectic acts, The Industry Bar continues to establish its reputation as one of Mobile’s most innovative music venues. The evening’s entertainment will consist of two acoustic shows currently on tour across the Southeast. Hailing from Jackson, Mississippi, singer-songwriter Aaron Taylor brings his musical commentary on the New South to the Azalea City. Taylor combines gentle trips across the strings with thoughtful lyrics, accented by just the right amount of rasp.
Wylder will bring its original acoustic compositions to Mobile, by way of Fredericksburg, Virginia. This indie folk-rock band has been busy recording its debut album, for which it’s gathered “industry professionals who have worked with bands such as Jukebox the Ghost, One Republic, Passion Pit and Modest Mouse.” Pulling influences from bands such as The Head & the Heart and Death Cab for Cutie, Wylder combines pop-influenced harmonies and folk-inspired instrumentation, with appealing results. Songs such as “Sunstroke” are a fun, infectious romp through the world of modern indie.
