Band of Horses at The Wormhole in Savannah – photos

Remember when you caught that famous band way back in the day, before they were playing festivals and racking up a million Facebook fans, when they were just a great bar band that could electrify a room?

Well, last night, apparently in preparation for a set today at Southern Ground Music & Food Festival, Band of Horses came down from Charleston and played at The Wormhole here in Savannah.

The capacity is technically 300 or thereabouts, but the ceilings are so low that I can touch them. The stage is little more than a foot off the ground. The last time Band Of Horses played Savannah, they sold out the cavernous and soulless Johnny Mercer Theatre at the 2011 Savannah Music Festival.

So, an amazing night for those of us who scored tickets, which were just $10.

More interested in enjoying the show than in just getting good shots, I was a lazy photographer last night and didn’t move around. The venue is a tough one for photos anyway — especially when there’s a bright light on the bass player, dim red lights on everyone else, and the lead singer’s eyes are obscured by a cap . . .

So here’s a shot of the set list and then some of the show, with more after the jump (click for larger versions and click here for Tom’s set):

    Thanks for the compliments! Glad you enjoyed the show. (The bands crew was in charge of the lighting panel by the way.)

        Yeah no problem! It was very hard and stressful but the results made it worth it! So I’ll keep working on the next big event, and keep improving the venue and promoting the music scene as much as possible. 🙂 We appreciate everyone that came out.
