The hardcore musical charm of Mama Roux
Mama Roux is the venue for you if you're into the harder side of modern rock. Which may strike you as strange for a place that took its name from a Dr John song, and indeed, you will also find plenty of slightly eccentric prog rock here too, along with a few other oddities on regular display. You'll find this smallish live venue tucked away behind a relatively nondescript facade in Lowe Trinity Street in Birmingham, and if you're a fan of anything that's remotely a soundalike of bands like Agnostic Front, you'll have a keen interest in buying or selling Mama Roux tickets on StubHub.
A cosy easy-going place to watch post-hardcore
Mama Roux opened in the late 2010s with an expressed love of the traditions of the live music clubs of New Orleans and the wider Deep South. This has given it a welcoming and charming atmosphere, rooted in an obvious and deep love of live music itself, which is also reflected in the decor, a combination of hi-tech lighting and sound equipment to best showcase the performers, and comfortable rustic furnishings and fittings. It's an easy-going place, which is exactly what the owners intended, so Mama Roux tickets promise not only high quality music, but just the right kind of place in which to enjoy it too. A colourful and characterful venue, it offers a stark contrast to the usual venues, where you'll find the kind of music that predominates here: hardcore punk and its many offshoots, like thrash, grind and noise rock. It's been the stomping grounds of bands from both sides of the Atlantic, like San Francisco deathcore outfit, Rings of Saturn and Woking's incendiary grindcore lot, Employed To Serve.
There's also plenty of hip-hop and reggae
Mama Roux isn't exclusively dedicated to hardcore music, however. There's plenty of other modern music on offer, and the venue takes pride in showcasing bands that delve into more esoteric musical territory, like the prog rock of Thank You Scientist. On other nights, the hip-hop scene has moved in, with MCs and rappers presenting everything from old school rap to grime, dubstep and UK garage. East London rapper D Double E has often gigged here, for instance. Similarly, reggae nights have always been popular here too, and even legends like the Skatalites have played on this stage. Mama Roux tickets offer a really nice mixed bag of great live music entertainment, so grab yours on StubHub now.
