Art On The Rocks Exclusive: The Lonely Biscuits

/ Art On The Rocks - Interviews

The Lonely Biscuits, who will play at Art On The Rocks in July.
The Lonely Biscuits will perform at Art On The Rocks at the BMA on July 22.

On July 22, we’re bringing the Music City to the Magic City for the second Art On The Rocks of the summer! The BMA is excited to host The Lonely Biscuits on the main stage, with an opening performance by Blue Healer, both from Nashville, Tennessee. One is an indie alternative band known for its mix of garage rock infused with 90s east coast vibes, while the other describes its sound as “pop with teeth.” Both will have you on your feet all night long.

Check out our recent interview with The Lonely Biscuits, and purchase your tickets to July’s event here. The Lonely Biscuits will perform at 10PM.

BMA: Everybody wants to know the band’s story. How did you all meet, and how did you compile musical tastes?

The Lonely Biscuits: We all met at Belmont University in the fall of 2011. Sam and Grady were random roommates and immediately started writing and recording in their dorm room. Nick lived right down the hall and started jamming with us a few months later. We all influenced each other and brought in different musical tastes from our hometowns.

BMA: Art On The Rocks is about blending the best of Birmingham culture (music, performances, food, and more) with the beautiful Museum environment. In the spirit of fusing music and art, tell us which visual artists might best represent the The Lonely Biscuits?

TLB: Some of our favorite artists are Shane McClatchey (he does most of our designs and album covers), Maria-Ines Gul, and Rob Sato.

BMA: In Birmingham, we have a really great food culture. If your music was perfectly paired with a delicious meal and cocktail, what would be on the menu?

TLB: A veggie burger with tots and a Coors Banquet. Grady is diabetic, so he can’t have cocktails. We also try to watch our cholesterol.

BMA: What can we expect from your show at Art On The Rocks? 

TLB: Our show is full of energy, some decent stage banter, smiles, and fun!
