Priests returns to Birmingham for the first time in over two years! Those with a keen memory may recall their killer set, when they opened for Ought back in 2016. NPR describes Priests' music as "deranged surf-pop that seems transmitted from an alien sock-hop." Their work peers into the void of shame and failure, that often accompanies creativity.
On March 9 at The Firehouse they'll be joined by Too Free (ft member of Merchandise), Fake Tyrants (B'ham punk rock), and Insignificant Other (B'ham queer pop).
RSVP This event is all-ages!

RSVP: Ben Smolin Experience at the Firehouse
The Ben Smolin Experience at The Firehouse.
For this show all willing participants are invited to dress as though they are going to watch a super-cool hipster indie band from the west coast play a show at a small-underground venue in avondale Alabama. Basically you want to look cool, hip, weird, and young.
Doors open at 9:00PM.
The Ben Smolin Experience will begin playing at 10:00PM sharp.
There is no opening band.
Tickets are $15.00. Cash only.
There are only 85-90 total tickets available at the door.
First come, first served, there is no pre-sale. (You are welcome to come at 9:00PM and get your tickets and come back at 10:00PM if you wish.)
There are no drinks available for sale at the Firehouse. If you are twenty-one or over you are welcome to bring your own adult beverages.
A personalized message from Ben Smolin:
I am aware that the tickets are $15.00 and that is not cheap. However I think it is important that you know that this money goes 100% towards the show and if there is anything left over, I use that money to pay the band and the soundguy/venue. I have never once actually made money on a show and most likely I never will. These shows are meant to be true experiences and there are numerous props, costumes, and other such things that cost money to make and/or buy. It is totally your decision as to whether this show is worth your time and money. And I know that not everyone has $15.00 that they can afford to spend on a show. However when you walk in the door you can be certain that I have spent months of time and hundreds of dollars of my personal money, to ensure that this show will be an experience that you will never forget.
