Mark your calendar: Lord T and Eloise 

What’s not to love about Lord T and Eloise? The Memphis–based hip hop duo is loud, profane and corny, and they both wear heavy makeup and outrageous costumes.

Robert Anthony (Maurice Eloise) and Elliott Ives (Lord Treadwell) are pioneers of crunk, the Dirty South rap derivation of heavy, distorted basslines and whip–smart, hypnotic wordplay.

“The album,” Flagpole said of the duo’s 2007 debut, “comes out sounding a lot like the Beastie Boys on some very expensive drugs.”

The guys were last in Savannah over the Fourth of July weekend, and they’ve booked a return gig – Thursday, Jan. 26 at Loco’s Grill & Pub.

Lord and E have a third release out. The 23–track Rapocalypse, they say, “takes place in the future” and is “a magnum opus of their experiences with time travel, and harbors messages of what is in store for humanity.”

Y’all can take that to the bank.

Civic Center

f it’s January, it must be circus time. Of course, January is just a week or so away, and the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus has indeed scheduled a stay in the Martin Luther King Arena. From Jan. 19 to 22, there’ll be eight shows under the (concrete) Big Top.

And the latest Tyler Perry stage play, The Haves & the Have Nots, comes to the Johnny Mercer Theatre Feb. 21. The cast includes Palmer E. Williams, Jr., Patrice Lovely, Tony Hightower, Alexis Jones and Maurice Lauchner.

Tickets for both events are available now at etix.com.

To the South

We all know that Charleston lands bigger and better arena and theater shows than Savannah. Duh. But Jacksonville, a similar drive (in the other direction) occasionally gets the goods as well. For example: The Tedeschi Trucks Band has a gig at the Florida Theatre Dec. 28 (granted, Susan and Derek actually live in Jacksonville, so I guess it’s a no–brainer right after Christmas). The fabulous Lee Boys will open. Sevendust plays Freebird Live Dec. 30. And the apparently re–energized Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band will play the Veterans Memorial Arena Jan. 10.

And now, this

• Coming to Muse Arts Warehouse Jan. 13–15: Epic, a one–woman show written by and starring the fabulous Eve Butler, a former Savannah resident who you saw in such theatrical productions as Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Les Liaisons Dangereuses. It is, says she, “ the story of three women, a couple of werewolves, a wizard, and some  supernatural baddies. It is based on Beowulf, the epic of Gilgamesh, and  the Odyssey.”

• Colorado’s Mountainfilm on Tour – a collection of short films abourt the outdoors, wilderness and adventure – is coming back for a 3 p.m. screening Jan. 21 at the Trustees Theater.
