Murder By Death + American Aquarium playing The Jinx 10th anniversary on 10/10

I had my fingers crossed for this one. Murder By Death‘s Facebook post earlier today of upcoming tour dates:

SEP 24 Little Rock, AR @ Downtown Music Hall
SEP 25 Carbondale, IL @ Hanger 9
SEP 26 Champaign, IL Pygmalion Music Festival @ Canopy Club
SEP 27 Cincinnati, OH Midpoint Music Fest @ The Taft Theater
SEP 28 Ames, IA Maximum Rock & Roll Fest @ DGs Tap House
SEP 29 Chicago, IL @ Reggie’s
OCT 5 St Petersburg, FL Don’t Stop Fest @ State Theater
OCT 10 Savannah, GA 10th Anniversary Party @ The Jinx

Murder By Death lead singer Adam Turla was in Savannah recently on personal business and hung out some at The Jinx. And I was assuming that owner Susanne Guest Warnekros, a huge MBD fan, had something big planned for her club’s 10th anniversary on October 10th.

And Murder By Death it is.

And American Aquarium will be on the bill too.

The Jinx announced the show officially last night:

According to the Facebook invitation, The Savannah Sweet Tease Burlesque Revue (which sold out the club last Friday) will perform before the bands. Tickets will be $20.

Murder By Death’s show at The Jinx during the inaugural Savannah Stopover was one of Savannah’s music highlights of 2011, and American Aquarium has had a few Savannah shows that are the stuff of legend (or, if not legend, at least heavy drinking).

Look for updates here as more news becomes available. (You might also want to “like” hissing lawns on Facebook.)
