What to do in Birmingham this weekend: January 8th

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The holiday season might officially be over, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of great things to do around Birmingham! Antwon Ervin of Discover Birmingham has plenty of events to fill your calendar with this weekend and beyond!

Mean Mary at Moonlight on the Mountain

Jan 10, 2016: 7 pm – 10 pm | $12 all ages

Co-billing with her that same night: The duo, Brother, Brother

Known internationally for her lightning-fast fingers and raw, unmistakable vocal sound, Mean Mary will perform at Moonlight on the Mountain, January 10 at 7:00 pm–$12, all ages welcome. The venue is located at 585 Shades Crest Road, Birmingham, Al 35226.

Mean Mary’s music travels the genres of roots, bluegrass, blues, and folk rock as this eleven-instrument-wielding vocalist delivers her intricate story songs. Anything from ghost pirates and barefoot girls to demon guitars and iron horses could romp through a Mean Mary show—or run like mad when Mary enters fast-picking mode.
