I didn’t know quite what to expect from the Richmond, Va.-based rock band Avers on opening night of the 5th annual Savannah Stopover, but I was really impressed by how tight and talented the 6-piece was. I’d check them out again in a heartbeat.

Live, Avers sounded even sharper and faster than this excellent recording:
I took pics, of course:
