Band: Roadside Glorious
Date: Friday, Sept. 14, 6 p.m.
Venue: Big Beach Brewing Co., 300 E. 24th Ave. (Gulf Shores), www.bigbeachbrewing.com
New Orleans-based quartet Roadside Glorious is returning to Big Beach Brewing Co. for a very special event. The band will be using a “pre-release party” at Big Beach to give its Gulf Shores audience a taste of its debut album, “Brawn & Bone.”
Roadside Glorious traveled from the Big Easy to Muscle Shoals to lay down the album’s tracks at the iconic FAME Studios. While recording in the Shoals, the band recruited John Gifford III (Phish, Alicia Keys) and Don Syrgley to handle mixing and mastering.
If “Gone Girl,” the lead single from “Brawn & Bone,” is representative, the crowd can expect a collection of new school, Crescent City blue-eyed soul in the key of The Revivalists. Mellow rhythms usher plucky guitar grooves mingled with a suave wave of soulful vocals. Those craving more of Roadside Glorious before its debut release will want to take advantage of this event.
