Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires

September 08, 2017 at 8pm


Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires' music draws deeply from punk, soul, power pop, country and gospel. Their songs are deeply rooted in Lee Bains’ experience of his hometown of Birmingham, Ala., depicting a southern city in the decades surrounding the turn-of-the-millennium: racial tension, class struggle, gender policing, homophobia, deindustrialization and more. “I don’t want to be a band from anywhere that could be doing anything,” says Bains. “For me, that’s what punk is about—figuring out who I am and how to be the best version of myself.” Documenting minor moments such as listening to somebody’s struggle or sticking up for friends targeted for their difference, Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires hopes to serve as the beginning of a profound awakening.
