The SCAD Alumni Concert in Forsyth Park has been making waves since its inception. It has evolved over the years featuring acts such as the funk legends George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelics to last year’s headliners, G. Love and Special Sauce. This free concert has become a tradition not only for recent graduates of SCAD but also for Savannahnians as a whole. This year’s headlining act, the Cold War Kids, are an indie rock band hailing from Long Beach, California. Their sound is raw and emotional and goes back to times and messages for which they got their name. For those who are unfamiliar with the Cold War Kids, check out one of their most popular and well known singles, Hang Me Up to Dry off the album Robbers & Cowards. This years concert will be on June 3rd in Forsyth Park with the show beginning at 7 p.m and as always, it’s free.

Head to the Starland District this Friday for a free evening of art and music featuring the immense talent of dozens of Savannah artists. Desotorow Gallery will feature two group shows: Gendered, a juried exhibition of art on the themes of gender and identity, and Strut, a showcase of work by local artists.
In addition to the group shows, Starland-based artists Raabstract, Kellie Walker and Matt Hebermehl will open their studios to the public. Open studios are always intriguing for artists and lay-people alike, because they provide an opportunity to see the unique environments that artists create for themselves, as well as glimpses into the process of making art.
