Start your weekend early at The Merry Widow, where “$5 Feature Thursday” will bring three bands to this LoDa venue’s stage. Comprised of Sally Robertson, Nikol Blaque and Elizabeth Wright, Mobile’s own Cyster Sister gives the local scene a dose of edgy rock with a much-needed feminine touch.
Third Man Records’ Craig Brown Band will add its unique honky-tonk rock to the mix. This band’s rowdy full-length debut, “The Lucky Ones Forgot,” is providing a new context to the alt. country genre. Craig Brown Band exists in a realm mingling The Rolling Stones’ backwoods anthems with Steve Earle’s hits and keeps it classic with beautiful harmonies.
Thelma & the Sleaze is bringing a fresh indie pop rock (heavy on the rock) sound to the mix. The band’s 2017 release “Somebody’s Doin’ Something” takes on a variety of musical personalities. Thelma & the Sleaze has crafted a sound entwining influences from ‘80s and early ‘90s rock, cutting it with bittersweet pop.
