Music Menu 

Band In The Park

Female-fronted Wilmington Island-based cover act offering mature rock, soul and pop hits (think Bonnie Raitt). Fri. - Sat., 9:30 pm, Scandals (Tybee).

Bluesonics

Popular local electric blues combo playing uptempo shuffles and ballads. Sat., 9 pm, Jazz’d Tapas Bar.

Captain Soularcat

Rome, Ga. world music-influenced jam band that’s really picking up speed, with significant satellite radio play. They recently lost a member to the reformed Blueground Undergrass, but are truckin’ right along. Fri., Savannah Blues.

Entropy

Tight, Athens-based funk act rooted in old-school James Brown grooves, as well as modern-day hip-hop and Jamaican riddims. Sat., Locos Deli & Pub.

Dean Fields

One of the top-selling indie artists on CDBaby.com, this acoustic singer/songwriter has a sparse, melancholy, guitar-driven style reminiscent of Tim Buckley or middle-period Cat Stevens. His music has been prominently featured on many MTV reality shows. A star on the rise? Fri., 8 pm, The Sentient Bean.

The Speaking Bean Slam

Monthly spoken word showcase led by noted Atlanta troubadour Kodac Harrison. This installment features “Basic,” a local poet who was recently named as a semi-finalist for Atlanta’s Slam Team, which will compete in a national spoken word contest in August. After his set, they’ll be a judged slam (sign up at 7 pm). Thurs., 8 pm, The Sentient Bean - ALL AGES.

Hazel Virtue

Polished regional modern rock band that’s streamlining a radio-friendly sound. Fri., Riders Lounge (Hilton Head) + Sat., Finnegan’s Wake.

High Velocity

Southern rock group made up of veteran area players, some from the now-defunct Bounty Hunter. Fri. - Sat., 9 pm, Silver Dollar Bar & Grill (Hwy 204).

Limitpoint

Give these driven SoCal “EMO Kiddies” 5 points for having André The Giant sticker master Shepard Fairey design their album art. Then throw in another 2 for their focused and rock solid delivery. Now deduct 2 for that guy who wears his cap to the side, and 2 for the cat who stole Mark McGrath’s frosted faux-bedhead. Whoops! Lose 3 more for that Mexican fast-food coupon that’s comes with each of their CDs... Fri., The Jinx.

MSIEZE

This clever and fresh Atlanta rap trio (pronounced “em-cees”) boasts minimalist backing and a clipped, direct lyrical flow. Tues., The Jinx.

Old-Time Country Dance

Take a trip back in time with this Americana tradition – featuring an acoustic group (The Glow In The Dark String Band) and a caller leading both novices and old hands through a variety of mountain moves. Sat., 8 pm, AASU Fine Arts Auditorium - ALL AGES.

The Permanent Tourists

Terrific funk, soul and classic rock party band (playing hits from Lionel Richie to The Rolling Stones). Fri. - Sat., 9 pm, The Oyster Bar (Wilmington Island).

She Alice

Newly-minted local cover band (popular hits in a variety of styles) featuring keyboardist Skip Graham and other established area players. Fri., Pogy’s Bar & Grill (Richmond Hill).

Shrimp City Slim

Charleston band blending shag, beach and boogie elements into a traditional electric delta blues format. Thurs., 7 pm, The Jazz Corner (Hilton Head) + Fri., 9 pm, Jazz’d Tapas Bar.

Starland Punk Show

The fledgling design district is now regularly utilizing it’s outdoor courtyard space for punk shows geared toward high school kids and extreme music fans of ALL-AGES. This show features Ashes Of An Empire (metalcore), Arcasia Red (melodic hardcore), and Ride The Pink Horse (breakdown-driven punk). Fri., 7 pm, Starland CCA (2424 Bull St.) - ALL AGES.

Tammerlin

This Florida duo follow in the tradition of the classic male and female folk duos. Lee Hunter’s high, wispy vocals and Arvid Smith’s captivating dobro and guitarwork reference early Richard & Linda Thompson as much as they recall Ian & Sylvia. Still, they’re no nostalgia act. This is eclectic, well-schooled traditional music that’s forward-thinking and quietly innovative. Sat., 8 pm, The Sentient Bean.
