As hissing lawns founder Bill Dawers wrote in a recent Do Savannah column, ‘it’s a great time to support Savannah musicians & establishments’. While the city at large has been reeling from Hurricane Matthew’s passing through the lowcountry, and dealing with related damage, those of us who make our living from performing have taken a second hit by having gigs postponed, and in some cases outright cancelled. We’ve already posted Larry Jack’s list of his live music picks for this weekend, and of course you can also check for more listings in Connect Savannah and Do Savannah.
True to the words he wrote, I ran into Bill as well as a passel of Savannah songwriters & performers at tonight’s acoustic show by Aaron Zimmer of City Hotel and the talented Isaac Smith at The Sentient Bean. These two troubadours & friends put on a great evening of solid songwriting & soulful playing, and their intimate performance was exactly what I needed to feel both ‘back at home’ after evacuating to Atlanta during the storm, and also to get my head in the game for a weekend of playing my own gigs.
Here are a few photos with more after the jump. We hope that all of our followers will get out & support the service industry & live music as Savannah slowly gets back on it’s feet!
