Need a fun Tuesday night? The Ford Center will be hosting Lee Bains III next Tuesday, Jan. 27, at 7 p.m. in accordance with Music of the South concert series.

Lee Bains III is a songwriter from Birmingham, Alabama. He currently lives in Atlanta, Georgia. Lee and his band the Glory Fires released their second full-length record, Dereconstructed, on Seattle’s Sub Pop Records last May.

One of the songs “The Company Man” from the album can be viewed here, courtesy of Seattle’s Sub Pop Records.

In the album Bains wrestles with questions of identity, culture, and history through a personal, politicized, localized and noticeably Southern lens. Dereconstructed was championed by the New York Times, Rolling Stone, Mother Jones, Bitter Southerner, Uncut, and the Guardian.

When Lee isn’t writing or flying across the globe with his gang of Alabamians, terrorizing live sound engineers and invigorating fans and new listeners alike from Minneapolis to Oslo, he can be found fixing toilets, reading Salman Rushdie, or watching Auburn football.

The Music of the South concert series is a partnership between Gertrude C. Ford Performing Arts Center and the Center for the Study of Southern Culture. The series highlight Southern performers. Singers such as folksinger Caroline Herring, Randall Bramblett, Valerie June, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton, Tyler Keith, Amy Andrews and the bands Water Liars and Feufollet. John “JoJo” Hermann of Widespread Panic has also taken part.
