2017 Favorites – Tom’s Year in Music

Pile I’m into music. Always have been, always will be. While 2017 was a shitty year for humans, it was pretty decent for music. I didn’t make it to quite as many festivals, but still saw around a couple hundred…

Jinx-O-Ween Night 2 – photos

What am I going to do on Halloween night? Stay home and eat entirely too much candy that I’m supposed to be passing out (Bottlecaps for the win, yo), or dress up like a weirdo, go to The Jinx and…

Jinx-O-Ween, Night 1 – photos

Yep, it’s that most ridiculous time of year again, when seemingly reasonable human beings dress up as sexy movie characters, sexy pop culture icons, sexy dead people, and, uhhhh, Rick and/or Morty and go see local bands emulate other acts.…

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.

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…
