Let’s be completely honest, Halloween has to be the third, maybe second most popular holiday in Savannah, right? Right behind St. Paddy’s Day (obviously) and maybe tied or just sneaking past the Fourth of July.
But among Savannah musicians, the weekend of Halloween takes on another meaning entirely. It’s the time of year where local bands and independent musicians come together and take on the amazingness that is cover band night at The Jinx. And that doesn’t just mean sounding the part (although every band hits their mark for sure). It also means that every band, more or less, looks the part as well. I mean, it is Halloween after all.
There’s a ton that could be said the first evening of Jinx-O-Ween: it’s raucous, it’s loud, it’s hilarious at times (gotta love Jeff Two Names dressing up as the different sides of Bass Player III); but one thing is for sure. It’s always a blast. This year was no different with a line up featuring:
GG Reta and The Scumbags covering GG Allin
Screaming Beaver covering Screeching Weasel
The Boyz covering Thin Lizzy
The Stone Cold Crazies covering Queen
Deadly Harry covering Blondie
Alice in Pain covering Alice in Chains
Fistful of Steel covering Rage Against The Machine
Harty Pard covering Andrew W.K.
