SUSTO, Becca Mancari, & Isaac Smith at The Jinx – photos

SUSTO came through Savannah last month for yet another awesome show. I’ve run out of superlatives for Justin Osborne’s songwriting and for the Charleston band’s on-stage intensity energy. SUSTO will continue touring relentlessly through the summer, so if you’re out…

Car Seat Headrest with Nap Eyes at The Orange Peel – review + photos

There was some great music last Wednesday night in Asheville. My co-editor Tom Cartmel and I ran into some other Savannahians who had made the 300-mile drive for Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, but we were there for Car…

High Water Music Festival-Recap

Last weekend’s inaugural High Water Festival in North Charleston, SC saw a lineup stacked with 24 bands that are a who’s who of the Americana, Folk, Roots and indie Country scene (The Avett’s, Dawes, Deer Tick and Margo Price to…

T. Hardy Morris & The Hardknocks at The Grey – photos

We’re huge fans of T. Hardy Morris here at hissing lawns. Drownin on a Mountaintop, with its exploration of what I’ll call Southern grunge, was one of my favorite albums of 2015, and 2013’s Audition Tapes spawned one of the…

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

This weekend brought about the return of A-Town Get Down Arts & Music Festival, and with it a full roster of top-notch music. This was my fifth year performing with Waits & Co. at the annual shindig, and per usual…

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…

Josephine’s Excellent (First Ever!) Stopover Adventure

I caught roughly 17 bands, and a cold, but these are the ones that persist on my iTunes and SoundCloud – these acts cut through time and current cold medications. It all began brightly at 8:30 am Thursday morning. Georgia Public…
