Murder By Death + Sarah Shook & The Disarmers at New Brookland Tavern – photos

All of our contributors besides Larry Jack have been pretty slack about uploading photos and writing posts for the past few months, as regular readers know, but the music goes on … We will have a post up soon about the ongoing search for new contributors, fresh voices, edgier photos.

I was in Columbia, S.C. last week for a stellar show at New Brookland Tavern by Murder By Death and Sarah Shook & The Disarmers. Regulars of The Jinx here in Savannah would feel immediately at home like I did at NBT. Sarah Shook & The Disarmers were even better than the last time I saw them — I never tire of the band’s grungy country (I’d love to hear Shook sing a set with T. Hardy Morris).

And Murder By Death commanded the stage with their usual power and grace. I write stuff for much of my income, but I find it difficult to express how much I love MBD.

I struggled with the lights on the edges of the stage, but I took a lot of photos. Click on through for lots more.
