Savannah-based General Oglethorpe and the Panhandlers heads out on southern tour

Savannah-based band General Oglethorpe and the Panhandlers starts their first major tour today with a gig in Jacksonville at Burro Bar. From there, they’ll be working their way west to Texas before doing a big loop back to Savannah. Tonight’s show and about half the tour will be with The Popheads, a fun rock band that I once caught with General O at The Wormhole here in Savannah.

General Oglethorpe and the Panhandlers also has a couple of great music videos, with wildly different moods. Here’s “Red Hot”:
