Since The Pollies’ first visit to the Azalea City, the Muscle Shoals-based band has made Callaghan’s a regular tour stop. The Pollies embrace Callaghan’s regulars with their soothing, mesmerizing style. This band’s sound is rich with influences from both indie rock and alt. country, in the same tradition as My Morning Jacket and Futurebirds.
The band returns to Callaghan’s for a special performance local fans won’t want to miss, as The Pollies record their first live album. Frontman Jay Burgess says choosing Callaghan’s as the location for this effort was a spur-of-the-moment idea, reinforced by the realization no touring band had ever recorded a live album there.
With this show closing out the tour, this performance will be seasoned to perfection by The Pollies’ time on the road.
