Anyone with a case of the Mondays can find relief with this four-band lineup at the Mule.
The crowd will get familiar with bloom. This Boston-based band has crafted a sound that mingles alt. rock’s muscle with indie pop’s synth-laden seduction. The group plans to spend next fall creating the follow-up to the “Take Time to Find” EP.
Aesthetically, Mr. Clit & the Pink Cigarettes look like they were cast in a post-apocalyptic John Waters film. As far as sound, this trio shows its listeners no mercy. Pulling from punk’s darkest underbelly, this Indiana band provides a great modern translation of punk made famous by such bands as Bad Brains and Dead Kennedys.
Azalea City indie rockers Paid to Pretend definitely made a positive impression at SouthSounds 2018. Since then, it’s been gathering fans with its trademark sound. Paid to Pretend’s single combines classic alt. rock arrangements with Madison Bolt’s powerful vocals that maintain just a hint of soul.
Speaking of classic alt. rock, Mobile’s Pseudo Box is also included on this Monday night lineup. This band mingles clean, rich vocals and unrelenting guitar work.
