The Independent Music Collective, a student organization at University of South Alabama, will be having its last show of 2016 on Oct. 28. The performance will feature Richard Buckner, a musician that has been generating buzz throughout the country. The doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show will begin at 8 p.m. For U.S.A. students, entry is free with a student I.D. There is a suggested minimum donation of $5 for all others.

The musician has several high profile admirers. Bon Iver, which currently has the number 2 album on the Billboard chart, dedicated their most recent recording “22, A Million” to Buckner. When asked why he dedicated the new release to Buckner, Justin Vernon replied,

“Richard Buckner has 13 albums and every one of them is perfect.”

Buckner has plenty of critical acclaim for his work as well. National Public Radio referred to the songwriter as “an immensely gifted artist.” Meanwhile The New York Times finds him riveting and laments his unjustly modest reception. Pitchfork media gave his latest album “Our Blond” an 8 out of 10 review. The publication described Buckner as “one of the most intriguing songwriters working, using a style that’s more likely to show up in anthologies of 20th-century literature than in other Merge Records liner notes.”

The IMC has brought many unbelievably talented musicians to Mobile, Ala. Together with the support of independent venue Satori Coffee, located at 5460 Old Shell Rd., an outlet for these under the radar musicians has been established which will hopefully continue for many more years. The only way that is possible is for music lovers to come out and support the Mobile music scene with their attendance, and buy local when going out for an evening.
