As Mobile’s extended holiday season reaches its midpoint, Azalea City denizens are abuzz with holiday cheer and goodwill. The Brickyard will be accenting this communal joy Dec. 13 with the local debut of an up-and-coming band from the Crescent City — Hash Cabbage, an eclectic five-piece known to everyone from Upper Magazine to the Marigny.
Hash Cabbage’s groundwork is “rooted in both rock improv and traditional singer/songwriter structure.” However, Mobile should not expect adherence to any boundaries. Throughout its catalog, Hash Cabbage pulls influences from “Southern rock, improvisational jazz, reggae, funk, outlaw country, all the way to surreal psychedelia.”
Delivering on their claim of musical diversity, “Flatbill City” is a grooving, Grateful Dead-inspired blues number with a hint of hypnotic Hill Country. Hash Cabbage counters this sound with funky Southern rock masterpieces such as “Tiger Lily.”
While the band’s music should be a hit with The Brickyard crowd, if you miss them there, you can catch them at Fairhope’s Bone and Barrel on Dec. 14.
