A memphis-based punk cyclone! Touching on post-punk, psych sprawl, and early 80s hardcore while remaining beholden to none. They have the power to convert even the most jaded and bored concertgoer into a sweaty mess in the pit!

Marcella & Her Lovers

8:45 PM
Swamp soul. Louisiana met Memphis and birthed the sound of Marcella and her Lovers. One detects in Simien’s music subtle yet devastating touches of the Memphis and Muscle Shoals sounds infused with the fingerprint of her Creole ancestors—that now laughing, now sighing Zydeco accordion and exhortations in shouted Creole French.
