Fresh off its 15th anniversary weekend, The Jinx has booked another week of stellar rock shows.
You can read Joshua Peacock’s preview of the Oct. 22 Torche show elsewhere here in Do, but that isn’t the only Jinx show worthy of special note.
Illegal Drugs, Vincas, Florida Man and Faucet Talk will hit the stage at the West Congress Street club on Oct. 18.
Atlanta’s Illegal Drugs is quickly gaining fans with intense songs like “If I’m Alright,” which was released earlier this month. I haven’t had the chance to see Illegal Drugs live, but friends who love hard rock, punk and metal have all praised the band’s performances.
The punk band Florida Man is, ironically, based in Charleston, S.C., and Faucet Talk is a young, Savannah-based rock band comprised of Forrest Long, Mark Evans and Lakin Crawford, who performed at the 2018 Savannah Stopover.
The much-loved duo Megan Jean and the Klay Family Band return to Savannah on Oct. 19 for a show at The Jinx.
Megan Jean has a commanding voice and stage presence — just check out the video from “These Bones” to get a sense of her charisma. Jean and multi-instrumentalist Byrne Klay have toured relentlessly in recent years and established a strong Savannah following.
Megan Jean and the Klay Family Band will be supported by two of our most talented Savannah-based performers, Britt Scott and Cory Chambers.
Readers who live in South Carolina or who don’t mind making a short drive on a Friday evening should note that The Train Wrecks will appear Oct. 19 at The Roasting Room in Bluffton
The Train Wrecks, one of the region’s top Americana acts, typically play bars and other big, bustling venues, so it will be a special treat for fans to see them in a cozy listening room with exemplary sound quality.
The band is scheduled to perform at 8 p.m. The Roasting Room can fill up fast, so advance tickets ($15 and up) are highly recommended. You can find more information about the venue, including a detailed seating chart, at roastingroomlounge.com.
