Alabama rock’n’rollers, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires visit The Hook for a raucous night of fuzzed-out, southern folk and indie rock. Making up the bill, 7 piece, queer rock band from Athens, GA, Nana Grizol, and beloved local indie rockers, Eleganza! Not to be missed!
As Birmingham punks revved up by the hot-damn hallelujah of Southern rock, Lee Bains III + The Glory Fires believe in the way things should be. The South is the band’s home, after all, and because of that pride, its members must speak against oppression to make it better. The songs are deeply rooted in Bains’ experience of his hometown, Birmingham, AL. Youth Detention depicts a Southern city in the decades surrounding the turn-of-the-millennium: in the throes of white flight, urban disinvestment, racial tension, class struggle, gentrification, gender policing, homophobia, xenophobia, religious fervor, deindustrialization, and economic upheaval.
Nana Grizol is a queer rock band from Athens, GA. Growing from singer Theo Hilton’s earlier solo music, the band played its first show in 2007 and released its first album, Love It, Love It, in 2008. The group now has three studio albums, including 2009’s Ruth and 2017 release Ursa Minor. Over the last decade, the band’s lyrical content has shifted to more explicitly focus on queer experiences and intersections of broad political dynamics and day-to-day life. In addition to Hilton, the band currently consists of Mate Cathcart, Jared Gandy, and Robbee Cucchiaro.
