A taste of this week's live gigs 

Jim Reed


Alas, alak, Alaska

Intentionally obtuse and at times unsettling female fronted ultra-indie Ca. psych-folk that’s receiving a positive reception at college radio. With young, quirky, low-fi, organic Az. psych act French Quarter Music and the intriguing (but at times overbearingly self absorbed/aware) trashcan noise/twee anti-folk of Foot Ox. Mon., 8 pm, The Sentient Bean - ALL-AGES.


Chief

Acoustic guitarist/singer who knows thousands of rock, country and soul hits. Fri., 8 pm, Coaches Corner (Thunderbolt).


Christopher Bell

Promising Cat Stevens-influenced baroque folk-rocker from N.Y. State. Thurs., 8 pm, Metro Coffee House - ALL-AGES.


The Co-Workers

Live alternative hip-hop band feat. members of award-winning locals Dope Sandwich. Sat., 9:30 pm, Tantra Lounge.


Chuck & Bucky

Acoustic guitar duo (popular covers) known for strong vocal harmonies. Thurs., 6 pm, Fiddler’s (Southside).


Danger Muffin

Charleston rockers playing originals and covering Petty, Prine, Sublime, etc... Thurs., 10 pm, Mercury Lounge.


Done 4 The Day

Newish local hard rock party band featuring veteran area musicians. Fri. - Sat., 9 pm, Jukebox Bar & Grill (Richmond Hill).


Eat Mo’ Music

Funky, instrumental soul-jazz combo. Sat., 8:30 pm, Isaac’s on Drayton.


Epiphany Spits

Spoken word Open Mic MC’d by one of the Spitfire Poetry Group’s most notable female performers. “$5 to sit and $3 to spit.” Wed., 8 pm, Tropicana Nightclub.


Hazel Virtue

Original alt.rock act led by local Eric Britt. Wed., 9 pm, Fiddler’s (River St.).


“Hardcore Halloween Fest”

Massive punk show/costume contest feat. Faith or Flames, Dirty Dirty, Remove the Veil, Set Apart, Lightweight, My My Misfire, Make Your Mark, Garden of Stone, Run! Forest Run! $10 cover. Sat., 8 pm, Studio B, Glennville - ALL-AGES.


Health

L.A.-based experimental rockers whose tunes are cathartic explosions of overlapping genres and influences. Fans of Talking Heads, Animal Collective, Sonic Youth and even PiL may find much to dig about this buzzworthy quartet whose had remixes of their tunes taking hold in the international dance community. With Baltimore’s avant-garde performance art/synth-rock duo Video Hippos and N.Y.’s angsty drum machine screamers Crime Novels. This is yet another edgy show at this DIY-leaning venue that aims squarely at the art school crowd. Will they show? Thurs., 8 pm, The Sentient Bean - ALL-AGES.


High Velocity

Southern and classic rock hits. Wed. & Fri. - Sat., 9 pm, Gilley’s (Hinesville).


Low Red Land

Intense and lyrically evocative, Frisco-based indie-rock trio with old-school emo (pre-fashion co-opt) leanings. Tour mates Sky Pilots’ sound is a wicked slice of the angular guitar arguments of Firehose and Mission of Burma, dredged in the Italian cinematic prog of Claudio Simonetti. Delicioso! Sat., 10 pm, Guitar Bar.


The One Too Many Band

Acoustic roots-rock. Fri., 7 pm, Uncle Bubba’s Oyster House (Wilmington Isl.).


Perception

Hard rock originals/covers. Thurs., 8 pm, Island Grill (Pt. Wentworth) + Fri., 9 pm, Bahama Bob’s (Pooler).
