Bad Brains is considered one of the iconic bands in the American punk rock scene. This group of dreadlocked Rastafarians could bring forth a furious assault of hellacious punk rock and quickly cushion it with a droning reggae number. All the while, front man H.R. made each performance a unique experience. H.R. is maintaining his reputation with the irie styles of his Dubb Agents project.
H.R. & the Dubb Agents will be accompanied by a trio of punk outfits. With layers of horns and ska beats, The Scorseses will bring a dose of Big Easy underground sounds. The Handsome Scoundrels will serve as half of Mobile’s representation. This Nappie Award winning band should whip the crowd into a frenzied mass. Even though Naked Intruder is one of the local punk scene’s newer bands, this band is comprised of a group of seasoned rockers who have no problem spreading their vehement sounds.
H.R. & Dubb Agents, The Scorseses, The Handsome Scoundrels, Naked Intruder
