This is another great weekend for local bands. I’ve never picked a show at Speakeasy before, but they’ve got a great one this weekend for y’all, and that ain’t the half of it:

Thursday 5/1

The Strife Rifle / The White Oaks / VASA / The Delicate Cutters @ Workplay
Admission: 10$

Go Time: 8:00 p.m.
The White Oaks

We certainly have been showered with a bounty of great concerts here in Birmingham lately. Today’s show isn’t as jam packed as last weeks Raindrop Festival, but the bands are some of the best locals to be found, and the charity (The Gopher Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer) is righteous. On top of all that, this is a pretty cheap ticket for Thursday night at Workplay, so it won’t break your wallet either.

Fri. 5/2

Man Man / Yeasayer @ Workplay
Admission: 15$

Go Time: 9:00 p.m.
Man Man

I know that the Crawfish Boil is happening today, but wouldn’t you rather go see something that hasn’t already been beaten into the ground with large rubber mallet.Both Man Man and Yeasayer build sonic sandstorms full of hidden oasis layers. Man Man crunches and Yeasayer soars, but either way yours ears are in for some sweet vibrations. That’s all I have to say about that.

Sat. 5/3      
Arkadelphia / The National Trust @ Speakeasy
Admission: ?     Be There: ?
Arkadelphia     Local boys Arkadelphia are playing tonight, and they’re one of the better bands from our neck of the woods. These guys know how to rock, and they know how to bring it with the acoustic folkitude. Playin lead and hitting the mic with vox is Lee Bains, who may recognize from some of his solo shows about town.The National Trust are a Tuscaloosa trio with a great songwriting sensibility and pretty kickin’ rock chops. Come on down and check it out.

Fatigued and fightin’. That’s me in a bombshell.
