On Labor Day evening, many will be returning from the beach. But The Merry Widow will be hosting a party offering an excuse to extend summer just a few hours longer. Three of Mobile’s most popular underground bands are included on this bill.
As Mobile’s longest-reigning punk band, Hibachi Stranglers have a dose of grimy garage punk for the crowd. Future Hate’s raging punk sounds have been a great addition to both the lineup and the local scene. Port Mortem Delirium will be on hand to regale the audience with its metallic horror punk.
For the past decade, locals have relished Peelander-Z’s “Japanese action comic punk.” With the aesthetics of an anime, Peelander-Z’s shows bring a rock ‘n’ roll intensity not tailored for just any old weeaboo. Its latest album “Metalander Z” shows that the band has been experimenting with metal sounds. With a set rich in sound and audience participation, Peelander-Z’s live performances are truly unforgettable.
