In a career spanning more than 13 years, Athens, Ga.-based Futurebirds has built a loyal following through incessant touring and a steady output of releases. On Friday, December 9, the septet – Carter King, Daniel Womack, Thomas Johnson, Brannen Miles, Spencer Thomas, Tom Myers and Kiffy Myers – will return to Birmingham for a performance at Saturn. My Morning Jacket guitarist and Futurebirds producer/collaborator Carl Broemel will open the 8:30 p.m. show. In September, Futurebirds released its second project with Broemel, the EP Bloomin’ Too (No Coincidence Records). Tickets to the 18+ show can be purchased at www.saturnbirmingham.com.
