It’s another great week for events in the Magic City. Fat Tuesday celebrations start things off on a festive note, with just as much following with each new day after. Multiple festivals join the usual routine of stellar comedy and music events to make for a very eventful next few days. Here are a few of the events we are most looking forward to.
Vibe Tribe Producer Showcase (Wednesday)
Luke Crowder does it again. The Grammy-nominated Birmingham producer continues to use his influence to uplift the talented music scene found throughout the Magic City. Crowder does so by partnering with bhamstands and You Should Be Listening to highlight local producers at The Upstairs at Avondale. This month’s edition features Jazzmine Garfield, Kobie Bakes, and 3AM. CJ’s Jewelry, SheepBlack Designs, Stokehold Art, Keana Brewster, and Daniel Williams will all be set up at this fun event that goes from 6:30 to 9:30pm this Wednesday.
BHM Festival (Saturday)
Is there anything more BHM than Black History Month in Birmingham? Besides sharing letters, the Magic City was home to some of the strongest Black women and men who changed our nation for the much better in the past and continue to do so today. Simone’s Kitchen ATL will be celebrating some of the amazing food trucks, vendors, and musicians that make our city so special this Saturday at Cahaba Brewing. A-Train, Fat Charles, Naughty But Nice, Eat-Abilities, O’ My Turkey Leg & More, Lemonade Junkeez, Wicked Wieners, Frozen Rooster, Not Ya Average Lead, A Dab of This and A Dab of That, and Corn Cab will all be in attendance with DJ Gap bringing the great tunes.
KAD Fest (Friday and Saturday)
The Kickback and Creatives After Dark are bringing KAD Fest to Birmingham for its third year! This two-day festival highlights hip-hop and R&B musicians from around the country, with a focus on Birmingham and Atlanta. This year’s event is headlined by Skoolie Escobar and Richard Daniel. Annise Courtney, Kitboys Club, 500 PRBLMS, Z6Saint, Booney, Flock Wav, Chasing Capital, ThatGuyVeezy, Griff., Kenarri, Ryan Milla, Decarlo Tatum Jr. & Damain.OG, Ham-Flo, and Junogloc will all be taking the stage for this fun festival at The Firehouse.
Cheyloe and Her Sleepless Knights - Iron City (Saturday)
Zach Austin Presents continues to bring their outstanding local music series to the Iron City Grill stage. Cheyloe and Her Sleepless Knights will be the latest all-star act playing the venue this Saturday night. Cheyloe and company have been building a following around town and this is going to be one fun show.
Joe Gatto’s Night Of Comedy (Saturday)
We often find ourselves surrounded by divisiveness in the world, but there is always one force that can bring us together - the Impractical Jokers. Joe Gatto was many people’s favorite before he left the classic comedy show to go out on his own, and will be making the city of Birmingham laugh this Saturday night at The BJCC.
Sunday Funday with Taylor Hollingsworth (Sunday)
One of our favorite monthly events is returning to The Nick this Sunday from 5 to 7pm. Taylor Hollingsworth will be playing great music with no cover to provide the perfect Sunday Funday atmosphere. We are truly blessed by how many great musicians play here so consistently and Taylor is often leading the charge in that category.
