Get your fest on a day ahead of time with some regional heavy sounds.
AURA Fest is going down at Ships of the Sea Museum all day Saturday (check out our coverage beginning on page 15), but a special 21+ show will be held on Friday, sponsored by Red Ocean Tattoo and El-Rocko Lounge.
Coastal Rock Productions has selected two innovative Savannah rock bands, Sins of Godless Men and Hotplate, to join Asheville’s Bask and Warner Robins’ Dead Hand.
Bask has become a Savannah favorite for their blend of metal-leaning hard rock and psychedelic/prog rock. The band has been touring in support of their 2016 LP Ramble Beyond. After their AURA Fest Pre-Show, Bask will hit the road with Weedeater for March and some of April.
Dead Hand performs doom/sludge/post-metal and has released albums on Divine Mother Recordings.
Friday, February 16, doors at 7:30 p.m., $5, 21+
