“Remember, the best way to support live music is to actually go see live music.”– Larry Jack Sammons

Hey, everyone, there’s a good bit going on the next couple weeks, pick your poison. I’ll be out a good bit, but am particularly looking forward to Day 1 of Cougar Fest at El Rocko, it should be a very solid night of aggressive music across several sub genres of rock. The Talking Heads tribute band at Congress Street Social is a really solid choice, too. See you out there, Tom

“Remember, the best way to support live music is to actually go see live music.”– Larry Jack Sammons

Okay, ladies and gents, we’re coming out of the holidays and getting back in the live music groove around here.  I hope everyone is well in the New Year. As for shows, there’s some good stuff in here. I’d say I’m looking forward to Space Prom hosted by Nordista Freeze the most. That dude makes everyone have fun with sheer will power, and then a weird prom theme with special guests on top of that? No brainer fun. Other stuff: Koffin Kats show at El Rocko should be great. The Georgia On My Mind show is stacked with great performers and will be Quality. Southern Culture on the Skids has literally been great every time I’ve seen them. Anyways, here’s a bunch of options for the next couple weeks. Pick something and go for it. See you out there, Tom

Ho ho holy shit, it’s December somehow! Here’s the next couple of weeks worth of shows to the best of my knowledge.  

 Personally, I’m kinda stoked to see Evergreen Terrace again. They were amazing at AURA Fest a couple years ago and highly recommended if you like gnarly metal, metalcore specifically if you’re picky about your nasty metal genres. Great live, mosh at your own risk.  That Minks/Black Hat show at El Rocko will be great, too. Two of Larry Jack’s favorite psych rock bands, and for good reason. Seriously, if you like live rock music, this show should be a no brainer. See you out there.

What a turnout at Eastern Wharf for Larry Jack’s List this past Saturday! Great performances, and lots of familiar faces. So cool.

There’s plenty going on in the next couple of weeks, too. Personally, I wouldn’t miss Daikaiju at El Rocko (Yeah, it’s a Monday show, but Google them or watch some Youtube videos, it’s totally worth dragging ass on Tuesday.), Cindy Lee at Lodge of Sorrows is interesting, and that old school rap show at Enmarket Arena looks nuts, but all of these shows are almost certainly worth your time.

Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour 10/12/23

“Remember, the best way to support live music is to actually go see live music.”– Larry Jack Sammons

Okay, guys, it’s been a heck of a couple weeks. I’ve driven all over creation and seen shows in Jacksonville, Charleston, Savannah (obvs!), attended weddings, a celebration of life, and…well, you get it. Hopefully my not posting didn’t make anyone miss the best concert of their life.

Anyway, during literally thousands of miles of driving, I’ve had some time to think about some things. I had initially decided to change the name of the column to something different that still paid respect to Larry Jack, but after the response to my last column, the lovely things that people have said to me about him, the hugs, and the vibe of Larry’s celebration of life, my intuition is that not changing the name of the column is the right thing to do. Thoughts? Objections?

I’d love some other input here, actually. What do we want this thing to be? Like, specifically? Just a Savannah live music schedule? Regional? All genres? Weekly posts? A couple weeks of shows in a post, or is it better to look out further? Do you want recommendations? Are times and prices important or are we all grown(ish) adults who can Google the details? I’m open to suggestions, keeping in mind that I’d rather be seeing live music than sitting in front of a computer.

You can comment online on the post, dm me on Insta (@flowplowed) or FB (Tom Cartmel), but much better yet, come out and talk to me at a show. Tom

The Legend of Larry Jack, The World’s Greatest Music Fan

“Remember, the best way to support live music is to actually go see live music.”

– Larry Jack Sammons
[photo by tom cartmel]

There is a massive hole in the Savannah music community, one that will never properly be filled. Long-time contributor and our great friend Larry Jack passed away on Sept. 10. 

On Oct. 1, per his wishes, the community gathered at Starland Yard to celebrate his life. It was evident from the gathering how many lives he touched with his infectious personality. His family and closest friends eulogized him with warmth between sets of live music. The perfect ceremony for a man who spent the majority of his life in search of the next show. 

Larry Jack not only attended a lot of live music—Guinness World Records figures—but he was the ultimate fan, cheerleader, and archivist. He found something early on in his life in live music that he cared about a great deal and did that thing with all of his energy. Even when he was fighting off cancer, going through breakups, or exhausted from working long hours. He was dedicated to the thing he loved most. 

His personal record for live shows in a single year was something like 766 individual concerts. Which is a world record, by far. He averaged around 400 a year (sans 2020, because there wasn’t much to attend). He kept a running log of every show in his phone with the date, venue, and band. If for some reason, we wanted to know the last time we saw a band play, he could consult the archive and remind us of the exact date. 

At live shows, for years, he would setup his digital voice recorder somewhere, or hold it in his hand, recording nearly every show he attended. Not for profit. Not to sell to people and, definitely, not to rip off the artist. 

He would take that recording, burn it on a CD, create his own album cover with the name of the band, venue and date, and then give that CD back to the artist the next time he saw them. If there were five people in your band, everyone got a copy. 

Among musicians in Savannah, you were not truly a Savannah band until you got a Larry Jack Demo thrust into your hands by a smiling, squirrelly, grey-haired dude who was at every single one of your fucking shows. He never wanted attention for this or payment. He didn’t chase popularity.

He was there for the music, and he always knew someone at the show. Because he was everyone’s friend. He bought t-shirts and vinyl records and CDs, or whatever the band was selling. He was the ultimate fan of everyone who played music. 

His house is a museum to live music in Savannah and beyond. There are demos, drum sticks, set lists, show posters, and so much more, that he saved, archived for no reason other than his own appreciation for the shows he attended. 

A number of years ago, hissing lawns was a thriving blog that was a response to a thriving music scene full of bands. In those days, Larry Jack saw The Accomplices and Train Wrecks over a 100 times each, two of his favorites. Larry Jack didn’t even want to contribute to this blog at first. And for years, he continually forgot his password.

But soon he became, as stated on Facebook, the heart of hissing lawns. When all the other writers and photographers dropped off, you could depend on Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour post each week with that week’s list of shows. And Larry would have his picks ready, the shows he most recommended, the ones he was guaranteed to be at. 

While most of us normal-abled people might make two or three or just a single show in an evening, by the time you saw Larry Jack, he had already seen three bands. And that was his love and his life. And he did it with the energy of a toddler into his early 60s, putting those 20-to-30 years his junior to shame. He had a zest for living we should all be envious of and strive to replicate. 

In his memory, in his honor, we will continue posting Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour to the best of our ability. But to truly honor Larry Jack, go see some live music. And stand up front, because “it’s a different experience up front,” as Larry would say. 

We are all better off for having known Larry Jack Sammons. We will miss our dear friend a great deal. 

See you at the show. 

PS: Larry Jack’s daughter, Lisa, is still in need of help financially. If you can, please donate here.

Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour 9/22/23

Hey, guys. In an attempt to honor Larry Jack, I am going to try to carry on his music schedule posts. I can’t think of a better way to remember Larry than to go to a show and enjoy the music and the amazing music scene that we have in Savannah. I felt his spirit in the room at a couple shows I attended last week … people having the time of their lives, smiles, hugs, weirdness, mosh pits, friends, discovering new bands … Larry lived for this stuff.

There is a ton going on in the next week. See you out there. Help me fill this giant hole in my heart. Tom
