Let’s finish this summer off with a “secret!”
August 5th-6th Birmingham, AL will be coming upon its 6th year of Secret Stages. We have personally attended and enjoyed this 2-day walking music festival in its previous years. With its affordability and excitement of “finding” emerging bands, Secret Stages is a win-win experience.

Just a few of the many genres of acts we recommend checking-out: Check out www.secretstages.net for more information regarding the schedule, bands performing and venues.
Lando Chill (Hip Hop) – Tucson, Arizona:
Unpretentious, inspirational and incomparable. Lando Chill has a sound of his own and delivers heroism to hip hop.
Just watch, listen , and enjoy:
Thayer Sarrano (psychedelic, dream-rock) –Athens, GA:
Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star) + Tanya Donelly (Throwing Muses, Belly), and Margo Timmins (Cowboy Junkies) = Thayer Sarrano. In brief, she perfects the 90’s dream-grunge.
Caddywhompus: (psych-punk, indie rock) -New Orleans:
This duo provides a musical explosion of structural elements that transition in exuberant shapes and colors. We are smitten with their charm. Frank Zappa would be proud.
Elroy Love: (folk, alternative country, rock) – Macon, GA/ Murfreesboro, TN:
A smooth and unique collaboration of folk and alternative country tinged with a hint of rock and roll. These Georgia boys give us an alternative to your regular “chill-out” music.
Skylar Gudasz (Indie rock, folk, jazz) –Durham, NC:
Skylar exposes her angelic voice in a distinctive folk-country, yet rock-n-roll form. Her music bestows joy & despair with a bit of sarcasm and relief. Enjoy!
Sun Seeker (indie, folk, Alternative rock) –Nashville, TN:
Nashville’s, Sun Seeker brings a haunting familiarity of Elliot Smith with a vivid yet stimulating ambiance.
7) Ona (alternative, indie rock) -West Virginia:
With an album produced by Bud Carroll, former (phenomenal guitarist) of one of our all time favorites American Minor, you are NOT going to be disappointed by West Virginia’s Ona. Ona embodies an appetite for representing and bringing us back to the original “rock-n-roll”.
Via http://www.secretstages.net/about/ : “Secret Stages is a two-day walking music festival that takes place in downtown Birmingham, AL on the first weekend of August. For two nights a diverse group of music enthusiasts are treated to around 60 bands performing on the stages of neighborhood establishments. These acts were drawn from the nation, the region, and our own back yard, and all are up-and-coming or buzz-worthy acts on the cusp of making a big splash. All Secret Stages venues are within a two-block radius, so our patrons can come to the city center, park, and have walking access to dozens of bands, a variety of venues, and delectable restaurants.”
