Adam Hood @ Antone’s 2/11

Adam Hood, hailing from Alabama, is a southern music staple whose Americana rock style can’t be pegged to any specific geographical region. He naturally incorporates that familiar southern charm into his acoustic melodies, with his Alabama twang adding a certain sort of truthfulness to his lyrics. Yet, while instilling that homey southern comfort vibe into his music, he also infuses worldly, mystical elements into some songs that takes us far away from Alabama, such as “Little Crow (Native American Theme).”

Hood is locally loved in the college town of Auburn, Alabama, as he garnered attention at the start of his music career through weekend gigs around town in restaurants and such. When Hood left Auburn to try working a 9 to 5 job, he found himself right back in the college town only 3 months later, attached to his music career and local success. Since then, Hood has become a well-known local music legend in Auburn, and doesn’t intend on giving up his hard-earned status anytime soon.

Hood’s single “Flame and Gasoline” reached #9 on the Texas Music Charts in 2011, as well as a few of his other tunes. He has performed at ACL, and was recently a part of the Willie Nelson Throwdown Tour. Hood is welcomed and loved here in Texas just as he is in his homeland of Alabama. This Saturday, he’ll be performing at the wonderful Antone’s with Brian Keane, and Do512 has three pairs of free tickets to give away!
