Taylor Hollingsworth @ The Independent, Friday 4/16

Hopefully no relation to Gary... but wait, weren't most of his family Auburn fans?

Taylor Hollingsworth, Birmingham’s resident acoustic genius (and Conor Oberst confederate), will get his folksy nasal on this Friday night at The Independent.

Hollingsworth recently gave Auburn its rock ‘n’ roll propers in an interview with Paste Magazine:

Paste: Yet in Life With a Slow Ear and some of your other solo work, there’s a pretty heavy punk influence.

Hollingsworth: Yeah, I’ve always loved punk. I’m a big fan of Wire, love The Ramones… But I guess everybody goes through that phase, or at least hopefully they do. I had a lot of older friends who were in to that kind of stuff, like The Replacements—it’s the stuff everybody goes through, growing up. There’s some cool punk bands in the south. I mean, there’s The Quadrajets from Auburn, and they turned out some real cool musicians. Jamie [Barrier] had The Wednesdays and, shit, he’s got this new band, Rise Up Howling Werewolf, or whatever.

… and I swear I remember Auburn Bikini playing a show with him at The Nick back in 2004.

Who: Taylor Hollingsworth, An Abstract Theory, and Callooh!Callay!

Where: The Independent, 203 Opelika Road.

When: Friday, April 16. Show starts at 10 p.m.
