Regional Picks for Week of 8/1 - 8/7

By tommyburton

Go in any direction this weekend and you're likely to find some live music to get you in the back-to-school spirits.

There are a couple of festivals worth mentioning. The first is Secret Stages in downtown Birmingham. This is the festival's third year and it describes itself as a "music discovery festival." It sounds like a mini SXSW and could be making a mark as a closer alternative to that festival. The festival lasts from 8/2-8/3.

The other festival is at the Old U.S. Mint in New Orleans. It's the Satchmo Summerfest and will feature New Orleans legend Allen Toussaint. This festival is also 8/2-8/3.

The Goo Goo Dolls and matchbox twenty will rock Oak Mountain Ampitheatre in Pelham, AL on 8/2.

Regional favorite Cowboy Mouth plays the IP Casino in Biloxi on 8/2.

The House of Blues in New Orleans will feature The Plain White T's on 8/1 and Kevin Costner & Modern West on 8/3.

Safe traveling, TB

Regional Picks for Week of 7/18 - 7/24

By tommyburton

A few shows that are happening outside of our area might be worth a road trip:

Oxford and Ole Miss will host the Blues & BBQ Festival on 7/18-20. Lots of artists and food will be on hand.

If the jam-band scene is your thing, you're probably heading over to Birmingham/Pelham at the Oak Mountain Ampitheatre for Widespread Panic as they bring two shows on 7/19-20.

Birmingham's WorkPlay will also host The Psychedelic Furs on 7/22.
