GLEN IRIS DOUBLE FEATURE: Southside’s day of shows

houseshow

Last Saturday, 1612 had its first show.

Things kicked off around noon with a lineup of Balcony View, Electric Sheep, and Bird’s Nest. Around 8pm the ‘double feature’ continued with Lume (new local shoegaze– Lizzie Little, Rickey Edge, Zane Lake, Jacob Watson, Jake Lovett), Mightus, Dommel Mosel (Adam Measel), and White Sands Missile Range. It was a great time, plus there was pizza and the neighbor let us jump on their trampoline, so what more do you really want from life.All of the bands said they had a great time playing and chillin’ at the house, with emphasis on the advantages of the intimate atmosphere a house show provides as well as the diverse turnout of a more eclectic show.

Rickey Edge, resident of 1612, said that he came up with the idea for a day show a couple of months ago, elaborating on their goal to “foster the growing sense of community in our scene” by showcasing bands from mixed genres. Rickey also stated that they are definitely going to have more shows at 1612 in the future and already have a few in the works.

After things wrapped up at 1612, The Steel City Jug Slammers played around midnight at David Maclay’s (of Electric Sheep) house. Their downstairs space is great for a band to play, complete with a built-in bar and even a spare room with a couch and red light 馃槈

Being somewhat in the know myself, I anticipate the block-party-shows that await Birmingham this Summer. So stay tuned DIY fam, because summertime will be here sooner than you probably realize.

Tuscaloosa says Goodbye to DIY venue Baby Haus

babyhausLast Saturday was the final show at Baby Haus, a house in Tuscaloosa that had been hosting shows in a few different locations for the past four years. As if Tuscaloosa wasn’t already renowned for being a “party town,” Baby Haus would often take it to the next level with antics such as nude moshpits, fireworks being set off in the house and the now infamous story of two girls getting busy during one band’s set.

I remember my first Baby Haus show in Fall 2010 and how I felt immediately welcomed & had so much fun.

Don’t get me wrong, Birmingham is rad, but Tuscaloosa got wild back in those days.

When it relocated to down the street in Fall 2011, the crunkness continued and the house’s walls eventually turned into a mural of random paintings & sketches. There were potlucks, bonfires, and eclectic bills ranging from hip hop to sludge metal (and of course, always the punk & garage rock).

Once Baby Haus moved to across the street, the house’s owner David Allen proclaimed that he didn’t want to have any shows at his new home. However, low-key backyard shows in Fall 2012 quickly escalated into house shows once again, but without the tagging and breaking things. Some proclaimed “Baby Haus was over” since it wasn’t as buck, but I personally appreciated how it had toned down into a setting for more artistic appreciation instead of constant inebriation. Shit was still getting ‘weird’ as recently as December though, when contact was made with Kurt Cobain through a Ouija board at the “Friday the 13th show,” and several people went down that rabbit hole.

I think we definitely took Baby Haus for granted while it was still here. It’s honestly a little hard to imagine our DIY scene without it, but Saturday was the perfect way to close it out.

The music started around聽3:30pm聽and ended around聽2am. All of the sets were solid, and shit got wild, reminiscent of Baby Hauses past, when Capsized’s pedal board got trampled and Billy Luttrell’s guitar got destroyed–聽missing 3 tuners, bridge and tail. I was in the middle of the crowd for nearly every set except for theirs because the moshing was too intense, even for me. Luttrell told me that it was the funnest show he’s ever played.

Carson Mitchell of The Dirty Lungs聽(who have an album soon to be released on Birmingham’s Communicating Vessels label)聽told this story of Baby Haus, having played the final show and at the former house:聽“Very funny story about the first time we played; we actually had a gig booked at the Mellow Mushroom, but there was some kind of mix up with the booking and they weren’t even going to open that night. We found this out as we were unloading all of our gear to the upstairs stage, and were very bummed out about it. To make matters worse, as we were reloading our gear into the van, our bass player at the time Jordan Sellers crushed his hand in the service elevator everyone uses to load their gear upstairs. It literally was broken for 4 months after the incident. Anyhow, after all of this nonsense had occured, we were still determined to make something happen even if it was just a party. Luckily, I texted our friend Madison (Langston) who was still living in T-Town at the time and already at a show at Baby Haus. She asked David right then if we could jump on the bill and he obliged. We ended up having one of the best and oddest shows of our life. Down a member, we had to play whatever we could think of that another one of our members could play on bass. It was also the first night I ever saw Gull, who is practically a celebrity in Birmingham now.聽I couldn’t think of a better way to experience the awesomeness of Baby Haus for the first time.”

babyhaus2

We are all really sad that the epic nature of Baby Haus is now over, but the memories will live on forever. I know someone will pick up the torch soon; Ttown is too rad not to have a DIY venue.

Saturday actually almost felt like just any other Baby Haus show filled with good music and good times until David Allen started handing out the goodie bags that included compilations,聽reminiscent of the Piss Shivers and Sorry Y’all era, and that’s when the nostalgia kicked in.聽Birmingham is lucky to be getting David Allen, and Tuscaloosa will surely miss him.

However, though Baby Haus is over now, Tuscaloosa’s music scene is not. We had a huge benefit show for United Students Against Sweatshops in the basement of a dorm in January, a “Valentine’s Day weekend ‘Cupid is a Sonofabitch’ ” house show last month and have a “Spring Broke” house show planned for聽March 29th. We are aiming to have an all ages show once a month now. You can keep up with the current happenings in Tuscaloosa through the facebook group DIY Tuscaloosa.

In the words of OG-Baby Jake Hinson, “This is rock ‘n roll, baby. Get used to it.”

Anna Thomas is a writer studying Education and Spanish at the University of Alabama. Currently in the band Rumblepak, she also books shows for DIY Tuscaloosa. She’s the newest addition to BHAMFM.聽

Female fronted Indie Rock phenoms, Speedy Ortiz will be playing Seasick Records on this upcoming Monday, January 13th. You may have noticed that we reviewed their debut LP Major Arcana here a few months back and were very, very impressed. It鈥檚 also been getting some high praise on many year end lists (A.V. Club, Pitchfork, etc…) and the band even has a new 7鈥 coming out in the next few months (check out a song here).

Also playing will be Speedy tour mates Grass is Green and local post rock/shoegaze instrumentalists In Snow. In Snow also tell us that they should have copies of their new tape

hot off the press for this show (which includes a download for the more digital minded fan).

This should be a great show and a bargain at only $5. Doors will be at 7pm, and the show should start shortly thereafter. Seasick is also a no alcohol venue, so if you plan on attending please respect their policies. They’ve got a good thing going, and it would be a shame to mess with it.
