As you read, four Birmingham bands will be performing at Secret Stages – Captain Kudzu, Me and My Knife and Seriously. Here’s a bit about each:


Seriously is another local Birmingham band that will be hitting the stage at Secret Stages. This up-and-coming post-punk band delivers elements of synthpop and new wave, along with dark tunes that will not only make you want to dance, but also make you feel.

Take a listen. They’re “seriously” good, right?

Me and My Knife

This garage rock band is good at two things: making noise and making you want to dance like no one’s watching. Oh, and they’re pretty good on electric and the sticks, too. Listen here.

Captain Kudzu

From ambient pop to garage rock, you can’t put this band into just one box. Being unique is always good, my friends. Check ’em out.

In Snow

In Snow’s a four-piece instrumental band from Birmingham, and they have a pretty good following. You may have heard of their most recent release, Four Lines, which came out in March 2017.

Whether you dig instrumentals or not, this band is worth a listen. Give ’em a try.
