Secret Stages Coverage Round-Up

Secret Stages is this weekend!!

The second-coming of Secret Stages is right around the corner, and we’re busy tying up loose ends and prepping for set-up tomorrow. Around this time tomorrow, the streets, sidewalks and venues of downtown Birmingham will be filled with awesome music and happy revelry. I’d give you a preview myself if I wasn’t being pulled in a thousand different directions right now, but you probably want a less biased opinion anyway. Hopefully, you’ve already made plans to be there but if you are still on the fence, here is a round-up of some of the preview coverage the local media has been whipping up:
