If you didn’t make it to see music last weekend, you missed some incredible shows. Murder By Death, Cusses, Same As It Ever Was, and many more bands put on fun, rocking shows. But if you missed last weekend, you have a chance to make it up this weekend. It looks like some more exciting shows coming up this week.If you haven’t been to the Jinx’s Halloween Tribute Band show, you should try to make it out this year.The show consists of many of our great local musicians in various cover bands, often one-off bands that you will not see again. It has turned into one of my favorite annual shows. But, if you are busy on Halloween, there are still plenty of shows to see this week.
Thursday 10/30/14 - Thursday has turned out to be one of the more interesting nights to go out. I almost always make a stop at Molly MacPherson’s to catch TimeCop vs DangerSnake, one half of the Accomplices band. As an added bonus, Ashley Workman works the bar Thursday nights. I will also make a quick stop at Barrelhouse South to catch Atlas Road Crew before they play at the Music Farm in Charleston Friday. The show at Hang Fire will have three excellent instrumental bands from Savannah. Hot Plate is kinda jazzy, Doom Salad a little heavier, and Star Period Star sounds more prog-rock. I’ll try to catch at least a few of those bands.
Atlas Road Crew (Columbia rock & roll) – Barrelhouse South
TimeCop vs DangerSnake – Molly MacPherson’s
Hot Plate, Doom Salad, Star Period Star – Hang Fire
Old Wounds, VICES, Young and Heartless, Old Lines, Without, MOTHER – Sweet Melissa’s (7p, all ages)
Friday – 10/31/14 – One of the best nights of the year! I will probably be parked at the Jinx for most of the night, lots of good musicians playing in cover bands. During the breaks, I will jump over to the Barrelhouse to catch Kota Mundi’s EP Release Party.
Kota Mundi (Savannah reggae), KidSyc (Savannah rap) – Barrelhouse South
Halloween Cover Band Night – Jinx ($10)
Saturday – 11/1/14 – I will be sad on this day-after Halloween, GAM won’t be playing their usual show, due to Keith Kozel’s illness. I am not really sure where I will end up on this night, I have listed a few choices.

Eric Culberson – Congress Street Social Club
Steppin Stones – Barrelhouse South
Boxcars – Randy Wood Guitars ($25)
Sunday – 11/2/14 – The Food Day at Daffin Park is a nice, family friendly event. You can catch lots of the bands that I have been talking about during the daytime and even bring the kids! I hope to make it out to the Tybee Island Social Club after that to catch The Bastard Sons Of Johnny Cash (great band name!).
