Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour (10/1-10/7)

Hey guys,

As I begin to write this, I wonder if anyone will look at the blog again this week? I plan to do the blog a little different this week, I will make changes on the schedule throughout the week. So, if you happen to look at this to see the night’s entertainment, be sure to check the day you are going out, as the list should be updated.

I hope that a few of y’all got out to see some kind of music last week. There were some really good shows.  I really enjoyed Watermelon Slim & The Workers at the Savannah Jazz Festival — you don’t get to see someone jump into the pool with a live microphone very often. I knew I could trust Skip Jennings & Co. I will be sure to catch People’s Blues At Richmond next time through, it was an exciting, but brief, show at Congress Street Social Club. And I knew I would enjoy Paleface at the Jinx, but I didn’t think I would like Little Tybee so much.

I am not sure if I will be out earlier in the week, but I will give you some recommendations of where I would be if I could.

Tuesday 10/1

Ray Lundy at Foxy Loxy (8pm) – This will be really good blues.

Sincerely, Iris at Jazz’d – Not my favorite venue, but I think this will be the last chance to see Sincerely, Iris for a while

Sauna Heat, Wet Socks, Potential Lunatics at Hang Fire (10pm) – I saw Wet Socks twice last week, really enjoyed them, two-piece electric band

Wednesday 10/2

Epic Cycle at The Warehouse (8pm)

Apparitions at The Warehouse (8pm) – Guitar rock

Thursday 10/3

Apparitions at The Warehouse (8pm) – Guitar rock

AcousticA at Jazz’d – Blues duo (from Bottles & Cans)

Eric Culberson at Bayou Café – Electric blues

Friday 10/4 – A very busy night, lots of bike riding.  Lots of good music this weekend, GO SEE SOME LIVE MUSIC TONIGHT!  I plan to catch all of these shows.

The Rosies at Foxy Loxy (6-9p) – Sister duo.  I have been trying to see them for a few weeks now, I hope tonight will be my chance.  And I always enjoy going to the Foxy Loxy courtyard.

Bottles & Cans at Warehouse (8pm) – Great blues band.

City Hotel at Dub’s (8pm)Bluegrass, good food here too.

Epic Cycle at Molly MacPherson’s (10pm) – One of my favorite bands. Brett Trammell has a unique voice and plays a decent harp. Ben Keiser is one of the best guitarists in town.

Eddie Sommer at Abe’s On Lincoln (10pm) – Solo overloaded blues-singer in one of my favorite music venues. Abe’s is a unique Savannah venue. It has a claim for the oldest bar in Savannah (been a bar since 1790’s), it has a great staff, and generally has a very warm feeling. And no cover!

Niche, Omingnome, & Sauna Heat at Jinx (10pm) – I have never seen Sauna Heat.  Omingnome has the female theramin-player from Word Of Mouth, what more do you need to know?  The show is Niche’s Record Release Party.  If you like 70’s hard rock, you will like them.

Saturday 10/5 – If you didn’t go out last night, SEE LIVE MUSIC TONIGHT!!!  I hope to see you at one of these shows.  Another night I hope to catch all of these acts.

Lovely Locks at Blowin’ Smoke (7pm) – Very good food. And one of my favorite bands.

Damon & The Shitkickers at The Warehouse (9pm) – Good old outlaw country music

Bottles & Cans at Congress Street Social Club (10pm)

Train Wrecks & Accomplices at Jinx (10pm) – I am really looking forward to this one

Sunday 10/6

Greenhouse Grand Opening at Southern Pines (3p-8p) – Benefit for Design For Ability ($20 early, $$25 day of) – Lots of good bands, Lovely Locks, City Hotel, Accomplices, and Kid Syc

Greg Williams at The Warehouse (8pm)

Voodoo Soup at Congress Street Social Club

Monday 10/7

Brett Trammell & Ben Keiser at The Warehouse (7pm) – It is a Monday, but it’s early. And this is the two frontmen from Epic Cycle.

Open Mic at Abe’s On Lincoln (10pm) –  Run by Craig Tanner, this is the open mic show that taught me to like open mics. Be sure to get there early and catch the blues set from Mr. Williams.  I have already talked about what a great locale this is. And you never know who will show up at this show (night off for most musicians). And they definitely have the coolest crowd.

As always, I hope that you will “Like” the hissing lawns site so you will be sure to get this weekly blog.  And I am always glad to hear any suggestions on what would make this blog work better for you.
