Rainout? Not for the 2016 Hangout Music Fest | AL.com

May 21, 2016

When the gates to the 2016 Hangout Music Fest finally opened at about 3:30 p.m. Friday, following a lengthy rain delay, fans entered a Hangout experience unlike any other.

One thing about sand: It drains well. After a start that would have left many sites with deep water — or worse, deep festival mud — the Hangout fest site was merely damp. Glitches on the video screens at the major stages suggested the water hadn’t done them any favors, but otherwise the show went on. And how.

Alabama Shakes make forceful return to Hangout Fest | AL.com

May 21, 2016

“What’s up Alabama?” Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard said Friday evening at the 2016 Hangout Music Fest in Gulf Shores, Ala. “We have the home-court advantage tonight.”

It’s hard to know precisely what she meant by that, because it was true on a couple of levels. Sure, the Shakes were playing in their home state. But they also were returning to a stage they’d rocked hard in 2012, when they were still experiencing their first rush of fame. Back then, they brought headliner excitement to a midafternoon time slot; on Friday, they were playing right before the actual headliner, pop act The Weeknd.

Gulf Americana: Willie Sugarcapps writes its own rules | AL.com

May 17, 2016

There are rules. When a group of musicians know they’ve captured the spark of something truly special, when fans clamor for more, when lucrative new horizons beckon, there are rules to follow. Willie Sugarcapps is breaking most of them.

After the group came together more or less by chance in 2012, its self-titled debut gained regional attention and even a smattering of national notice, particularly in the Americana genre. Aside from the shimmering harmonies and distinctive songwriting, the group had a great story, that of a one-shot gig that gave birth to an accidental supergroup. And the rules dictated exactly what a group should do, in such a case: Drop everything, pile into a bus and hit the road hard. Build market share. Perfect your formula. Get more product in the pipeline fast.
