Futurebirds pack B&D Burgers for 1st show in new concert series – photos

Futurebirds made the trip down from Athens recently for a sold out show in the first installment of B&D Burgers ‘inaugural concert series at the Congress Street location.

The organizers brought in the producton pros at Kaufman-Heinz and a big stage for the ambitious experiment. The surprisingly mild evening was kicked off by Mostly Goodspell and CONNELLIS, and the headliner started around dusk. Futurebirds’ bassist Brannen Miles is from Savannah and the band has long had a strong following here, so lots of spectators were singing along.

B&D’s patio has a really nice flow, especially with all the tables cleared out, and I never waited more than a few seconds for service at the bars. The success of this first big gig bodes well for the next shows with Kevin Griffin of Better Than Ezra on July 31 and Houndmouth on August 29. Some of you will want to get your tickets now.

I brought along my FujiFilm x100t, which limited my options a little compared to a larger DSLR, and the lighting was pretty strong, which probably looked much better in the official videos being shot than in my photos. A few here, with more after the jump.
