Club gigs don’t often sell out far in advance in Savannah, which is a notoriously walk-up town, but tickets for Highly Suspect were gone before The Jinx and MusicFile Productions (parent company of Savannah Stopover) even started promoting the show.
The Massachusetts-based three-piece has been nominated for two Grammys, but they had never played the Savannah market and we don’t hear much of their brand of hard rock around here.
Lots of new faces turned up at The Jinx for the high-energy show, which was sponsored in part by Rock 106.1 — you can see both Ryan and Kotter in my pics.
Before Highly Suspect took the stage, Slothrust impressed with their skillful, quietly charismatic garage rock. The Inverted, a young rock band from Florida, was added late to the bill and turned in a great set.
