Candy Opera: Savannah-based creation of long time native (son of Savannahs greatest jazz musician, Ken Palmer), Phillip Polk Palmer (Port City Blues) whos crooner crew like a musical succubus, has siphoned from the low country lands, a dark, surreal film noir sound enveloped in a bluesy veil that will set the tone for this show and give the whole thing Savannah street and swamp credentials!
Openers Rose Garden Funeral Party, a trio hailing from Texas is often branded as Texas Goth Rock or post-punk, all of which may be true, but this tight pyramid of players consisting of lead singer, Leah Lane, bassist Will Farrier and drummer Dylan Stamas is an explosive collaboration of well-heeled minstrels that have refined said goth or post-punk sound to a new level of stone driving rock! And vocalist beauty Leah Lane both during raucous rants and love ballads makes one wonder if The Motels Martha Davis and David Bowie had a love child where Joan Jett was godmother and Siouxsie Sioux part-time au pair? This is the band to watch and you get to say you were there early on the launchpad taking in their rocket launch and grooving on the fumes!
