RED CLAY STRAYS @ DISTRICT LIVE

When Patterson Hood sang “strong like the people from south Alabama,” he might have meant these guys. Red Clay Strays do classic country, rockabilly and gospel-tinged soul with a rock and roll edge. On stage, they let it all hang out.

THUR JUNE 23 | 8 PM

ELTON LIVE! @ COACH’S CORNER

If you grew up at the right time in a place where radios were legal, you know, love and can recite the words to no less than 15 Elton John songs. Maybe more. Sir Elton has sold over 300 million records, and the Elton Live! tribute show delivers a relentless onslaught of top 10 hits from one of the best catalogs in pop history.

SAT JUNE 25 | 7 PM

MICHAEL CRUSE QUARTET @ GOOD TIMES JAZZ BAR

The Lexington, Ky., trombonist blended personal lineage, innate talent, and studies at U. of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music to become a leader of the Atlanta jazz scene. He’s known for brilliant takes on Louis Armstrong, and his work has appeared in popular television shows and movies.

FRI JUNE 24 | 8 PM

MARAUDA @ ELAN SAVANNAH

The 21-year old Australian dubstep prodigy had to rebrand from his original moniker Mastadon to avoid confusion with Georgia metallions Mastodon. The bass community breathed a sigh of relief when his sound didn’t change. It’s still high-energy and loud with neck-snapping tempo changes.

FRI JUN 24 | 10 PM

DRAUCKER @ ELECTRIC MOON

Start the weekend early with soulful, guitar-driven rock. Led by the three Draucker siblings, their eponymous band continues to rock Savannah properly. A portion of drink sales benefit Treutlen House, a nonprofit in Rincon for troubled youth. Do the right thing and have too many.

THUR JUNE 23 | 7 PM

MAHDIY DRUMMOND @ THE WORMHOLE

The New York-based comic is a busy man. He produces several shows in The City, including female comedy spotlight “B*tch Please” and “Comedy Catwalk.” His own material mines the funny from the mundane, with jokes that hit about pressing social issues or drinking a glass of water.

SAT JUNE 25 | 8 PM

8 SECOND RIDE @ BARRELHOUSE SOUTH

Five country boys from somewhere near Macon put a high energy spin on modern country and popular hits. If you’re not careful, they might even drop a three-part harmony on that ass. For hopeful groupies, don’t fret. The name is a reference to rodeo thangs.

FRI JUNE 24 | 9 PM

 

SONGS AND STORIES IN THE SQUARES @ DAVENPORT HOUSE MUSEUM

Savannah VOICE Festival and local nonprofit Historic Savannah Foundation host the second installment of the series. Starting in Columbia Square, this free event combines 10-minute talks in four squares with SVF artists performing two songs in each that complement the themes. A very unique evening awaits.
