Southern Living teamed up with Avondale Brewing Co. and Birmingham Mountain Radio to deliver the Ultimate Birmingham Musical Showcase last Sunday. A cast of Birmingham’s hottest rock bands, including St. Paul & the Broken Bones, Matthew Mayfield and the Blue Cut Robbery, Jesse Payne, Duquette Johnston, and Sea Fix came out to raise money for Desert Island Supply Company (DISCO), an after-school creative writing studio for kids. It’s a little tricky to get there, the orgnizers have cleverly set up a rental led screen to direct you in the spots where you can make a wrong turn.
We caught up with the bands to chat about their music and what they love about Birmingham.
