"S.O.S.S. - Weirdo punk all the way from America’s treasured Gulf Coast ground zero of humidity, hoggery, bribery, and imbibery, Mobile, Alabama USA. Gestated in 2017, S.O.S.S. is back in 2021 after over a year and a half sabbatical to invoke new senses of elation, trepidation, and subluxation."
"Though having performed for quite some time with a variety of line-ups, BHK’s intensity found new focus in 2017 as a quartet featuring Sara Roberson, Matt Whitson, Matt Tubbs, and Wess Gregg. Initially founded years ago as a vehicle for hammering through existential dread, BHK’s present momentum takes aim at dismantling toxic racist and misogynist systems, while exploring a timbre that is abrasive and hauntinly melodic. Sonically they take influence from a cross-section of punk, metal, and experimental music sub-genres."
"Currently Birmingham's longest-running punk band. We've played all over the Southeast, hitting Alabama (obviously), Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, and Louisiana at least once. Florida, your day will come...eventually. We've played bars, all-ages clubs, parties, and even a mental institution. Over the years, we've been lucky enough to play with some amazing touring bands (Agnostic Front, UK Subs, MDC, Murphy's Law, The Vibrators, Zero Boys, Fear, Fishbone, Koffin Kats, etc.) as well as countless regional and local bands. For a complete list of every show we've ever played, check the "Notes" section on this site and the Facebook page. We've also managed to put out four full-length CD's, a 7", several CD EP's, and have been on more than a few compilations.
While there may be a bit of metal and the like thrown in, we have been and always will be a punk band. You do this because you can't imagine doing anything else, and the day that stops, so will we. Slowly putting together songs for an eventual 12", but don't hold your breath, as we take our time writing songs. So there, that's it. If you want to know anything else, you'll just have to ask..."
There will be OVER 50 vendors participating from all over the southeast. There will be vintage, music, oddities, art, collectors items, zines and more.

"MATCHI (Maht-Chee) is an Industrial Pop project based out of Birmingham, AL. Their first extended play, "Oblivion EP" was released February 14th, 2017. Noted as a dreamy fuzz narrative with an attitude towards current environmental issues, gender identity politics, and heartbreak.
Shortly after MATCHI evolved into a three piece. That following fall, MATCHI recorded and released, “A Lil Something Wrong With Cute”, growing into a darker and more refined group.
Following their second release MATCHI has been featured in Commodity Fetish Records’ Magazine Issues, and has released their first music video for "Suketo City" off of “A Lil Something Wrong With Cute”.
"Bad Plane EP" was released in July of 2019, and featured new explorations into both lighter and darker sounds.
In July of 2021, Matchi released their fourth record, “CREEEAAATURE”, a return to form, while also highlighting newly crafted songwriting skills that were honed during the spacing between the last release.
MATCHI is currently working on a set of EP’s, “Terrible Purpose” and “No Pulp”, as well as an LP, “Pockets In The Garden”.
MATCHI does NOT have a drummer, but instead uses an ALESIS SR-16 Drum Machine."
