mewithoutYou play Birmingham tonight

If you’re bored in the Ham on this fine Tuesday night, one of my favorite bands circa high school is playing Bottletree tonight around 8pm: mewithoutYou. Adjectives such as “post-punk” and sounds of distortion come to mind when I think of this band, so I encourage all fans of spoken melodic stuff, the Tooth&Nail/SolidState labels and atmospheric guitar not to miss this. In a strange stroke of irony, I’m old enough to see the show but I’m out of town (Sorry kids, it’s 18+).

Here’s some streaming audio of their new album and more.

Whitney Duncan, a country singer and former contestant on television show Nashville Star produced music videos for three songs – “Right Road Now,” “Open Road” and “When I Said I Would” – in Birmingham this past week. Wednesday night the Bessemer-based production company Erwin Brothers, shot scenes at Sloss Furnaces. About 200 extras were on hand to play adoring fans and concert goers for the video accompanying her song “When I Said I Would.”

Click on the image above to view images from the video shoot last night. In one scene Duncan signs autographs for a crush of her fans. In the other she and her band perform on the Sloss stage. The single and video for “When I Said I Would” is due out this summer. Duncan records on the Warner Bros. label.
