A new week, a new blog. I do hope that some of you reading this get to make it out to a show or two this week. I think I will try adding in a “most excited about” show recommendation or two weekly. Of course, sometimes I will get it wrong and pick a so-so show, so bear with me, I hope to be right most of the time.
This week’s picks and recommendations:
Arpetrio, Omingnome – Wormhole (9pm); Omingnome’s last show before their tour. Arpetrio is an electronica band.
Os Mutantes, Capsula – Dollhouse Studios – Although the location has been open for a while, I haven’t made it to Dollhouse yet. This show looks like my chance. Os Mutants are a 60’s Brazillian psychedelic band. Seeing as I have never seen Brazillian Psychedelia, this is gonna be my pick of the week. This show was recommended by Ray Lundy, that make me really look forward to it.
Futurebirds, New Madrid, Triathalon – Jinx – Stopover Band Announcement – Triathalon (10p), Announcement (10:40), New Madrid (11p), Futurebirds (12mn) – I have never seen the Futurebirds, but I know if Kayne and the Stopover folks picked them, they will be good. And don’t forget, it’s your last chance for early-bird discount tickets for the Savannah Stopover.
New Familiars – Molly MacPherson’s – I will be slipping down to Molly’s during a break to catch this great Americana band from North Carolina.
Eric Culberson – Rail Pub (6-9)
Danielle Hicks & The 8 Ohm Resistance – Moon River (6-9)
Magic Rocks – Warehouse (8p) – Fun 70’s & 80’s covers. And you get to see drunk tourists dance.
Hypnotics – Molly MacPherson’s (10p) – Garage rock trio.
Ross Fish, Wet Socks, Blackrune, Rotten Blush – Hang Fire (9:30)
Scott H. Biram – Jinx (10p) – The Dirty Old One Man Band. That really says it all.
Michael Allman Band – Wormhole (8p) – Gregg’s son. Annie Allman is playing with the opening act. I have been told that this is going to be a good show, looking forward to it.
Wet Socks, Sauna Heat, ForcedEntry – The Barbershop (34th & Bull) – 8pm
Bottles & Cans – Blowin Smoke (7p)
Train Wrecks – Molly MacPherson’s (10p)
Sweet Knevil – Congress Street Social Club (10p) – Funk-jam band from Athens.
Lyn Avenue – City Market (5:30) – Savannah band, country-rock, female lead singer. Haven’t seen them yet.
