Having once lived in Atlanta, after relocating to Savannah, there is nothing more that I miss than concerts. Wagatail Productions’ Ben Baruch is hoping to change that by bringing Yeasayer, one of decades biggest indie bands, to SCAD’s Trustees Theatre. I went into Trustees pining desperately for a return to my beloved downtown Atlanta area. I did not leave disappointed.

Do NOT miss out on Yeasayer in Savannah! Many music blogs have listed their newest album, Odd Blood, as one of the BEST of 2010.
Yeasayer is an eclectic, genre-bending journey into pop, rock, Middle Eastern and African musics, folk, and dub. Successfully blending world music stylings into psychedelic indie rock makes them a show you MUST see & hear live.
Opening Act: Washed Out.
Cost: $22 Advanced; $25 Day of Show (additional service fees may apply). SCAD tickets are available in advance for $20. SCAD tickets must be purchased in person at the Savannah Box Office. Tickets can be purchased online, by phone at 912.525.5050, or at the Savannah Box Office window, 216 E. Broughton St., or at the door 1 hour prior to the event.

WHO: The Blues Was Born Here (Cephas & Wiggins, and Beverly “Guitar” Watkins)
WHERE: Charles H. Morris Center
WHEN: March 19, 7 and 9:30 p.m.
WHY: There’s nothing more Southern than the blues, and this show will offer two great talents with wildly different takes on the genre. Cephas & Wiggins is a guitar-and-harmonica- wielding acoustic duo that plays in the Piedmont style. Beverly “Guitar” Watkins, a Georgia native, has been burning up stages with her rarified electric blues since the late ’50s.
