What a great bunch of music last weekend. I missed a few shows that I wanted to see (Wet Socks and The Silver Palms), but I caught a few acts that I did not expect to see (Drunk Uncle and Hypnotics, both of which were great). This was the type of weekend that reminds me of how nice the whole Savannah music community is and how exciting it is to be a very small part of it. If you enjoy reading this blog, I would encourage you to try to catch a show downtown soon and enjoy the good vibes floating through City Market and throughout downtown. This would be a good month to do it, there is going to be great music throughout January. The good music continues this week. It looks like the Tour starts on Thursday this week.
Wednesday – 1/8/14
Epic Cycle – Warehouse Bar (8p)
Thursday – 1/9/14
Delta Prawns – Warehouse Bar (8p) – This was a pleasant surprise that I got to see last week, a side project of Anders and Charlie from Damon & The Shitkickers
Jason Bible – Rocks On The Roof (9p) – Music from the frontman of the Train Wrecks
Eric Culberson – Bayou Café (9p) – The Bayou is a perfect place to see a blues band.
Wet Socks, Thee Holy Ghosts, Jeff Zagers, White Treasure – Soft Science records launch/release party – Hang Fire (10p) – I missed Wet Socks last week, I plan to catch this fuzz-rock duo Thursday
Jeremy Riddle – Molly MacPherson’s (10p)
Friday – 1/10/14
Beach Weather, Edward Appleby, Black Dust – Graveface Records (7p) – Listened to the first two bands, moody kind of music. I would like to catch Black Dust (members of mumbledust and Blackrune).
Megan Jean & The KFB – The 5 Spot (8p) – I probably won’t make it for this, but Megan Jean is always worth seeing.
Electric Grandma, Lobo Marino – Sentient Bean (8p) – World music at the Bean. Grandma has finally returned from a European and Western US tour and I have not seen them in quite a while. I hope this will be one of the highlights of my weekend.
Sins of Godless Men, Burning Mansions, Hotels – The Jinx (10p) – This will be the heaviest show of my night. Great bands and a fun night of music at the Jinx.
Train Wrecks – Molly MacPherson’s (10p) – It has been a while since I have caught one of my all-time favorites, the Train Wrecks. I hope to catch some of their Americana music during breaks at the Jinx, but you could spend the whole evening there and be very happy.
Saturday – 1/11/14
Accomplices – Molly MacPherson’s (10p) – If you haven’t caught them yet, you are missing out on one of Savannah’s best bands.
Anchor Bends – Jinx (10p) – Clips sounded good, includes members of Leatherface and All Night Drug Prowling Wolves.
Perfect Pussy, Tonto, Crazy Bag Lady – Hang Fire (10p) – I’ve only seen Tonto (guitar rock), it sounds like the other two bands are punk, I’ll make it over there for some of the music. And with a name like Perfect Pussy, you have to be good.
Sunday – 1/12/14
Priests, Crazy Bag Lady, Forced Entry – Graveface (7p) – Punk rock on a Sunday!
AcousticA – Jazz’d – Ray Lundy and Mike Walker from Bottles & Cans performing blues music.
