Birmingham, AL – On Sunday, September 28, October 12 and October 26, Vulcan Park and Museum will kick off its tenth year of Vulcan AfterTunes featuring The Revivalists, Dumpstaphunk and Milo Greene.

The annual three-part concert series features local and national acts that each bring a unique sound to the Vulcan AfterTunes stage. Grab your lawn chairs and blankets and bring the whole family out to relax.

The Revivalists (Sept. 28): An indie rock septet out of New Orleans that has been together since 2007. They mix rock with the Southern funk of their hometown, and are not afraid to toss up genres, throwing in everything from heavy steel guitar and occasional electronic dabbling to create a unique and evolving sound. Their latest album, “City of Sound,” came out in 2012.

Dumpstaphunk (Oct. 12): Debuted in 2003 at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and have been grooving across the nations ever since. They hold true to the origins of funk while not being afraid to let elements of gospel, blues, R&B and a touch of rock n’ roll sneak into their music. In 2013, they released their latest album, “Dirty Word,” featuring Flea of Red Hot Chili Peppers along with guest appearances from other friends and family.

Milo Greene (Oct. 26): The quintet is a cinematic pop group coming out of LA, with a smooth indie rock edge and combines wisps of guitar, drums and vocals into an airy sound you can imagine playing out of your television speakers as onscreen waves roll onto the beach. Their self-titled debut album came out in 2012 and their second album is coming soon.
