Peelander-Z at The Wormhole – photos

There’s lots I could talk about with this Saturday night rock show/weirdness….the costumes, the totally dumb/totally fun songs about Too Many Mikes/Tacos/Ninja High School/Medium Rare Steaks, the whole crowd limbo, the crowd participation, the circle pit, the crowd surfing, the…

Cusses, Big Jesus, and HOTPLATE at The Jinx – photos

So this was one hell of a lineup at The Jinx. We’re all stoked that Cusses are kicking ass again, Big Jesus is getting…uhh…big, playing Bonnaroo, appearing on Adult Swim, touring with The Sword and Thursday, and HOTPLATE, well, HOTPLATE…

Totally Worth It Show: Surfer Blood and COEDS tonight (10/11) at The Jinx.

Hey guys, just a quick reminder that there’s an almost certainly great EARLY (don’t say I didn’t warn you) show tonight, Wednesday, October 11 at The Jinx. West Palm’s Surfer Blood are finally coming through town. I caught them opening…

Statts Fest Goes Bananas is Saturday, Statts Pre Game was a blast – pics

Statts Fest Goes Bananas II is Saturday, beginning at 3 o’clock, at the always awesome Grayson Stadium and you should go. Take the wife, the husband, the kids, grandma, your kinda weird uncle, take everyone. A great lineup of local…

Cray Bags at Weekend Mania – photos

Here’s a photo gallery of the last Cray Bags show for the foreseeable future. I am unwilling to say last show ever, because that would be a damn shame, as they were (are?) one of the most powerful bands Savannah…

10 (super lame) reasons not to go to the Wimps show at El Rocko tonight. (Thurs. 6/22)

1. Never heard of them. Okay. Wimps are a 3 piece punk band that was named the best punk band in Seattle at one point. Seattle. Not Pooler. Freaking Seattle. They’re on Kill Rock Stars, the record label of Elliott…

Dad Joke Weekendmania – this weekend – preview

Honestly this is going to be a bittersweet weekend of music for Savannah. On one hand, The Jinx is hosting over a dozen rad Southeast bands, ranging in genres from throwback garage rock to power pop to gnarly dbeat punk…

Reverend Horton Heat, Unknown Hinson and The Goddamn Gallows at The Jinx – photos

So my New Years resolution was to get show posts together within a few days of the show. How am I doing? Hint: I’m doing a shitty job of it, that’s how I’m doing. Anyway, this show was a while…

Tom’s Savannah Stopover 2017 – photos

Well, I made it through another festival, even though I Stopoverdid it opening night. I think I’ll do this random factoid style… Enjoyed 31 bands over the 3 nights. Staying in a loft over Hang Fire feels a little wrong…

30 odd Savannah Stopover memories

The Savannah Stopover is here. Not only is it hard to believe it’s time for the festival, it’s amazing to me that it’s the 7th year already. I’ve attended all 7 years, missing only one night, mostly because I’m a…
