Little Tybee played two packed shows around Savannah this week. It’s not often that we see full venues early in the week, especially in midsummer, but Tybee Island Social Club on Monday and Hang Fire on Tuesday were both jamming.
From the TISC stage, lead singer Brock Scott noted that the band had never played Tybee Island, which is kind of amazing given Little Tybee’s name and deep regional roots. Brock also talked about how the local geography and culture have influenced the band’s sound, but I wasn’t taking notes and won’t try to recreate the quote.
I got to Tybee Island Social Club early and ate at the bar — it’s one of the best places for a reasonably priced meal in the Savannah area — and watched as the place filled with young and old fans of the band. Great night.
Predictably, it was a younger, rowdier crowd on Tuesday at Hang Fire. I left before Little Tybee’s post-midnight set, but it was great to hear the garage-y energy of Curbdogs for the first time and to hear the increasingly polished Triathalon again. Rachael Perisho joined Triathalon on keys, which filled out the sound in really satisfying ways, and Adam Intrator sure knows how to work a crowd.
I assume we’ll have more info soon about the release date for Triathalon’s second album.
Neither venue is particularly good for photography, but I took some shots at both shows. There are more of Little Tybee after the jump along with Triathalon and Curbdogs.
