The good folks at Alabama Public Television have recently begun a program called We Have Signal, a series that can perhaps be described as a Birmingham version of Austin City Limits...though with a decidedly more underground feel. Season one features the likes of The Fiery Furnaces, The Dirtbombs, Pelican, Earth, The Dodos, Beach House, The Sword, The Warlocks, Health, The Weakerthans, Bill Frisell, The Black Angels and others including Birmingham area bands. After the performances air on APT, they're available soon afterward to stream on the website linked above. All shows are filmed at the Bottletree Cafe, a venue that's quickly become a favorite of touring bands as well as fans in the region.
Here's an embed of The Fiery Furnaces show, other shows can be streamed here.
