Band: Rock ‘n’ Roll Matinee, featuring South Carlen, POVY and Montague
Date: Friday, Feb. 15, with doors at 7 p.m.
Venue: Alchemy Tavern, 7 S. Joachim St. (Mobile), 251-441-7741
The Conde Cavaliers will bring the boom-boom back to downtown Mobile for the 2019 Mardi Gras season, and Alchemy Tavern will be holding the first parade after-party of the evening with its Rock ‘n’ Roll Matinee. The continuation of Alchemy Tavern’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Matinee is proving there is a market for locals who want to catch music in the early evening.
Matinee regulars South Carlen will be on hand to spread musical misrule throughout the venue. With equal measures of classic alt. rock and modern indie rock, South Carlen pulls influences from bands ranging from The National to The Strokes. Since the release of its debut “Playing the Ghost,” South Carlen has performed along the Gulf Coast in an effort to attract fans.
Azalea City alt. rockers POVY will also be joining in the revelry. While its sound is inspired by The Pixies, POVY uses minimalist electronic elements to set its rock ‘n’ roll apart. The group’s self-titled debut boasts 12 tracks that feature a mix of classic and modern alternative elements while mingling mellow and adrenalized vibes.
Montague, visiting from New Orleans, will bring its Alchemy crowd a taste of “Blood Orange.” Clean, jangling guitar work and glossy vocals make Montague a flashback to the glory days of Hoodoo Gurus.
