This three-band lineup will feature a rare performance by the Azalea City kings of punk, Hibachi Stranglers. With a history stretching more than a decade, Hibachi Stranglers just might be the longest running punk band in Mobile’s underground scene. They have used a punk style containing elements of proto and garage to maintain a loyal following and turn their live shows into adrenalized dance parties. In recent Hibachi news, Jake Hethcox of The Shunnarahs has taken on drum duties.
An underground contingency from Florida will join Hibachi Stranglers. St. Petersburg will be sending the electrifying Gino & the Goons, who conjure the same demons that inspired such bands as The Stooges and Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers. Cookies & Cake will bring their “electro trash hop” from Pensacola, mixing gnarled, crunchy electronic goodness with carefree hip-hop.
