Month: January 2016

farewell, Those Darlins

So why do some bands break through to the next level and others don’t? The more I cover music, the more I’m convinced that random factors might be the most important. And so somewhere along the line, the fates were…

Larry Jack’s Magical Music Tour – 1/28/16 – 2/2/16

Hey guys, This should be another decent looking music week around town. ¬†This weeks’ highlights for me will be the Savannah Stopover Lineup Announcement at the Jinx on Saturday, even though I never know more than a handful of the…

looking back and looking ahead: an interview with T. Hardy Morris

These seem like good days for T. Hardy Morris. Last year’s album Hardy & The Hardknocks: Drownin on a Mountaintop — an exhilarating, sort-of-dirty melding of southern rock and grunge — was a hit with both fans and critics (and…

Jucifer and HOTPLATE at The Jinx – photos

I made it out Thursday to listen to HOTPLATE and feel Jucifer at The Jinx. I’m continually impressed by HOTPLATE and their insanely precise, mathy, cerebral, instrumental rock. Weird ass time signatures and catchy riffs will get me every time.…

This one will just be a quick write up, because I’ve spoken about most of these bands at length before and can’t really express how great they are. Savannah locals COEDS and Sins Of Godless Men have both been tearing…

The annual Singer-Songwriter Edition of the Thursday Night Opry at Trinity – photos

I’ve been covering arts and culture in Savannah for many years, and I still have trouble wrapping my head around how much talent we have in this relatively small metro area. In recent years, Trinity United Methodist Church on Telfair…

Hey guys, It looks like this is gonna be another good weekend downtown, so bundle up and head out for a couple of these great shows.¬† Thursday has a couple of good choices, I am especially looking forward to the…

Torche, Jeff Carey and Day Old Man at The Jinx – photos

Torche returned to The Jinx Thursday and it was, in a word, fantastic. If you know of a finer live heavy rock/metal/doom pop outfit, I would be surprised. Thunderously heavy, melodic, hook laden guitar goodness at its best. A pretty…
