Birmingham’s also well known for his longstanding support of the local scene and his rapport with bands and musicians, both of which date back decades. For proof, look no further than the roster for his 50th birthday show at Shady Park in Tempe (a.k.a. his current place of employment). A variety of artists and acts of both an old-school (Grave Danger, Flathead, Zig Zag Black) and modern-day variety (Sara Robinson Band, The Woodworks, Japhy’s Descent) will perform.
Others on the lineup include Fat Gray Cat, Page the Village Idiot, Soul Grind, and Bourbon Witch, a stoner rock supergroup featuring local musicians and Birmingham donning green face paint while performing as lead vocalist. It’s definitely a sight to behold.
