At The Red Cat we love music.

Located in the historic Martin Biscuit Building, The Red Cat sports high ceilings, an abundance of windows, and a wide-open space. Along with coffee that is roasted on site, The Red Cat also carries an array of fine beers and wines. Come imbibe your favorite beverage and soak up the harmonies. Music keeps Birmingham awake!

A veteran of the New England folk scene, Williams emerged nationally in the mid-1990s, winning fans with her idiosyncratic songwriting, acerbic wit and lovely soprano voice. Hendrik Hertzberg of theThe New Yorker has described Williams as "one of America’s very best singer-songwriters. She is touring in support of her 10th studio album, In the Time of Gods
. These ticket prices are the cheapest on her entire tour, so this is an extra special treat for Birmingham.

Growing up in Roberta, Georgia – population: 800, with its rich assortment of eccentric characters, southern wit and teenage isolation, helped rising singer/songwriter Meiko find a clear voice and keen insight. She’s built an already impressive following, quickly becoming one of the west coast’s most enchanting and promising talents.
The Bright Side, Meiko’s second solo release and Fantasy Records/Concord debut, is an intimate, fearless song-cycle about risk, regret, tenderness and love. Her indelible melodies and sharp lyrical viewpoint give The Bright Side a powerful, artistic punch.
