After Widespread Panic finishes what is sure to be an epic show at the Mobile Civic Center, Soul Kitchen invites all Spreadheads to continue the jam down the street.
This will be a chance for locals to check out one of the music scene’s newest groups, Steady as Time, which will be using this after-party to release its debut EP. According to the group’s Facebook page, Steady as Time is Dalton Muse and Dillon Broadus. The public was treated to a sample through an extremely brief demo track on the duo’s website which it calls “Tiny Little Meatball.” Judging from this offering, the audience should expect an unbridled set of psychedelic rock.
Marbin will headline the after-party. This Windy City quartet plans to overwhelm the crowd with volley after volley of free-flow jams. Since 2011, the band has gained worldwide notoriety for its unique form of jam rock, which is showcased on its latest release, “Aggressive Hippies.” Marbin’s hybridized sound mingles jam rock and jazz with outstanding results. Songs such as “Redline” and “African Shabtay” break the sound barrier with quick, intricate runs across the clefs. The band’s intense music should make instant fans out of local Spreadheads looking to continue the party after Widespread plays its last song.
