The Jinx 10th anniversary on 10/10 unites Murder By Death, American Aquarium, burlesque

Murder By Death‘s last appearance here was at The Jinx during the 2011 Savannah Stopover — that show was hands down one of the tightest rock shows I’ve seen around these parts.

I don’t know if the American Aquarium will play “Savannah Almost Killed Me,” but it would be fitting:

And The Jinx’s 10th anniversary will also feature performances from The Savannah Sweet Tease Burlesque Revue, which sold out the joint a few weeks ago.
