MusicFile Productions LLC announced today that more bands have been added to their Summer Concert Series in Savannah.
Chicago-based quartet Filligar, a Savannah Stopover Music Festival alum, will headline The Jinx on Aug. 3. The band's new album, "Hexagon," will be released on July 23 and is already garnering advance critical praise. Acclaimed indie harpist Mikaela Davis will open. Tickets for the concert are $8 and will be available at The Jinx and on Showclix.com.
An Aug. 17 show will feature Roadkill Ghost Choir and T. Hardy Morris at The Jinx. RKGC has continued to gain both press attention and fans since their Savannah appearance at Stopover in March. T. Hardy Morris, best known for his role as the frontman of Dead Confederate and founder of collaborative group Diamond Rugs, will release his debut solo album "Audition Tapes" on Dangerbird Records July 30. The album includes appearances by members of Delta Spirit, Black Lips and The Whigs. Videos for the album's tracks have been shot around Georgia focusing on "Places In Peril" and 10 percent of the album proceeds will benefit the Georgia Trust For Historic Preservation. MusicFile Productions and The Jinx will match that donation from net proceeds of the show. Tickets are $10 and will be available at The Jinx and on Showclix.com.
SCAD alum Helado Negro will return to Savannah on Sept. 4 for an artistic night of sultry, Latin-tinged, electronic music. Roberto Carlos Lange, aka Helado Negro, is Ecuadorian but grew up in Miami and first starting creating music when he lived and studied in Savannah. The concert will take place at Dollhouse Studios with additional details to be announced. Tickets will go on sale the week of July 22.
Announced earlier was a performance by legendary English rockers Modern English, who will play Aug. 28 at Dollhouse Productions' event space at 980 Industry Drive. One of the defining post-punk/new wave bands of the 1980s, the band will tour the U.S. behind the release of a new album, the first to be recorded with the original members of the group in 25 years. In addition to newer material, their hit songs "I Melt With You," "Hands Across the Sea" and "Ink and Paper" remain some of the most recognizable and beloved tracks of the last 40 years.
An 80's themed dance party will follow the 10 p.m. show. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 the day of the show, space permitting. Tickets are on sale at http://www.showclix.com/event/3768441/pre-sale.
