LEGENDARY punks The Vibrators are hitting Savannah on their final tour. Formed in 1976, the band helped pioneer U.K. punk rock and remains one of the genre’s longest-running bands.
Originally formed by Ian Conochan, Pat Collier, John Ellis, and Eddie the Drummer, the band has gone through many lineup changes while continuing to tour and play favorites like “Baby Baby,” “Automatic Lover,” “Whips and Furs,” and more for their fans. For their 40th anniversary tour, founding member Eddie plays with guitarist Darrel Bath on guitar and Pete Honkamaki on bass. The band released the album Past, Present, and Into the Future in March 2017 and shared a timeless, melodic three-song EP, ‘Restless,’ in September.
The Vibrators are touring with Wilmington, North Carolina punks Rocket 77. Florida indie rockers The Pauses join the bill.
Thursday, October 5, doors at 8 p.m., show at 9 p.m., $10 via ticketfly.com, $15 at the door, 21+
