Alchemy Tavern plans to take its crowd through a range of emotions with this two-band show. Mississippi Shakedown is a furious duo from Hattiesburg specializing in brash, electric garage rock. But sometimes veering into blues territory, this band has something for everyone. Azalea City regulars, Mississippi Shakedown haven’t visited LoDa in quite some time, owing to a broader performance schedule. Their local fan base should take advantage of the opportunity.
Della Memoria may be from the same geographic area as Mississippi Shakedown, but exist on the other side of the musical spectrum. Many locals are already familiar with this group from when they opened for Knox Hamilton. The Alchemy crowd can expect to hear cuts from the band’s debut EP, “Beautiful Dream.” Led by Emily Shoals’ ethereal vocals, guitar and synthesizer; rhythm is provided by Josh Smith on bass and Patrick Mcginley on drums.
