If you waited too long, you likely missed out on tickets for the Savannah Rocks! Beatles celebration concert happening Friday, because they were all sold out as of Thursday morning.
But according to organizer Colleen Heine's Facebook post, "We may be able to sell a small number of tickets at the door tomorrow night after 9:30 p.m. for the GAM and CUSSES sets. These late tickets will be only $5." So Savannah's procrastinators may still have a chance to attend what we're sure will be a knock-out party.
No worries, though, as there's still plenty to choose from this weekend. For music, we recommend the Dead Yet? record release show at The Jinx. Cover is just $2, and all proceeds from fees and album sales will go to help local musician Jason Statts, who was left a quadriplegic after being shot in 2008. This is also one of the final performances for the band, for now, as the trio's future is up in the air after the relocation of one member.
Friday also brings the monthly Art March in the SoFo/Starland districts. The official Wormhole after party also features Charlie and the Foxtrots, Smooth Hound Smith and Fare the Gap, along with the bar's inaugural creative industry night. Musicians, writers, photographers, designers and artists of all types: Here's your chance to drink at a discount. Just remember to take it easy; we know how you creative types like to get down.
If dance shows are on your mind, Savannah has a variety to offer. Those looking for a night of modern vaudeville and contemporary cabaret need look no further than The Downtown Delilahs' "Valentine's Day is for Suckers," with three more shows throughout the weekend. You can also catch the world premiere of Columbia City Ballet's "Alice in Wonderland," complete with a tea party, on Saturday afternoon at the Civic Center.
Movie buffs who are feeling a bit romantic should take advantage of two offerings from The Lucas this weekend: "Amelie" on Friday and "The English Patient" on Saturday. They're even offering a special price of $15 for two tickets, two soft drinks and a box of popcorn to share. What a sweet deal!
If you're looking for musical theater, be sure to catch the final performances of "Grease" at the Historic Savannah Theatre on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
And finally, it's a big weekend for art and history. The best part? These events are all free!
First up is "Museum in the Moonlight" at Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum. Get a glimpse of Savannah's past with an evening at the Scarbrough House. On Saturday and Sunday, head to Wormsloe Historic Site for the annual Colonial Faire and Muster to watch history come alive with musket firings, a military encampment and much more.
Probably the most anticipated weekend event is Super Museum Sunday, offering four hours of free access to more than 40 cultural institutions throughout Coastal Georgia. Check out the map and mark your route!
Looking ahead to next weekend's Savannah Book Festival, we've posted about half of our author interviews and bios here. Look for more throughout the week here on dosavannah.com and in the next issue of DO!
