While Mardi Gras is known for its revelry, the Sunday before Fat Tuesday lives in infamy. Joe Cain Day is known for nonstop raucous debauchery that pales in comparison to the rest of Mobile’s Mardi Gras season.
Named for the Azalea City’s personal patron saint of Mardi Gras, Joe Cain Day always pulls the Pine Hill Haints back to town. The group specializes in a trademark style called “Alabama Ghost Music,” a raw, true form of Americana. The Haints’ jangle, twang and fury should provide a great accent to the day’s festivities.
Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires will also return for this high day, with edgy rock ‘n’ roll forged in Birmingham. For those who like what they hear, the band is currently promoting their “Live at The Nick” album, which provides an excellent sonic snapshot of the band in its native environment.
Scott Yoder, visiting from Seattle, will fill out the day with modern glam rock from the city of grunge. A throwback to the days of T. Rex and Mott the Hoople, Yoder will bring a set filled with rock ‘n’ roll grandeur fitting for the occasion.
