Corey Smith / American Aquarium – Johnny Mercer Theatre – 07/14/11

One of my first posts on this blog was a glowing appraisal of American Aquarium, a band from Raleigh fronted by B.J. Barham. They play Savannah gigs at The Jinx a few times a year, and I can’t even begin to say how excited I am to see them on the big stage of Johnny Mercer Theatre when they open for Corey Smith on July 14th.

You can sample and download several songs from their Daytrotter session here. The band’s official site is here.

A brand new song “St. Mary’s”:

I like Corey Smith’s music just fine, but I’m more excited to see American Aquarium — and I’d encourage Smith’s fans to get there early.
