this mountain – The Jinx – 12/01/12

this mountain was first brought to town by Savannah Stopover to open for Ponderosa under the majestic oaks in Telfair Square at the end of the Savannah Bicycle Campaign’s Midnight Garden Ride (click here for more on the event).

Most of the cyclists only heard a couple songs of this mountain’s fine set, but it was sure a memorable musical experience for me — one of those times when I know virtually nothing about a band and then, the moment they start playing, I immediately feel like I’m listening to a story told by a long lost friend.

The six members (Matt Martin, Zach Chandley, Patrick Taylor, Andrew Gibbens, Taylor Green, and Cody Ledford) then schlepped their gear over to The Jinx, where they played a long, rousing show for a big Labor Day weekend crowd.

I’m thrilled to hear that this mountain is headed back to The Jinx on December 1st, and I just hope they have the same kind of crowd that they had last time.

And here you can sample their album future ghost:

And here are some shots I took last time around.

Since so many of these look similar at this size, I’d suggest clicking for larger versions and then scrolling through with the directional arrows on your keyboard. I just love how the band members seem physically connected in some of these.

The first few are in Telfair Square, and then we move to The Jinx:
