Watchu know about Fun Bobby? If you’ve been in the Valley music scene for more than a minute, you’ve probably heard a few tales about Robert Birmingham. The 6-foot-6 stories bartender/booker is renowned for his drink-mixing skills (his Bloody Marys are the stuff of legend), the time he spent helping run legendary bygone venue Hollywood Alley back in the day, or his always friendly demeanor.

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.
