Why don’t things like this happen more often?

In conjunction with illustrator and album artist William Schaff’s book-signing of From Black Sheep Boys to Bill Collectors, Triathalon and The Casket Girls performed short, relatively quiet sets at Marc by Marc Jacobs on Broughton Street late Thursday afternoon.

The event also served as a great promotion for Graveface Fest on Saturday, October 27th, featuring Black Moth Super Rainbow, CUSSES, and lots of other bands.

The performances — and a raffle of some pretty cool stuff — brought a steady stream of folks into the store, which is wonderfully spacious and airy, with great light and great views out onto Broughton and Montgomery streets.

Triathalon was up first, and they decided to perform in drag. Really bad drag, as you can see in the photos. Their surf rock sound worked just fine in their stripped down, quiet delivery.

The Casket Girls are part of Graveface Fest on Saturday — Ryan Graveface can be seen in the pics below playing keys. Twins Phaedra & Elsa Greene are the lead singers. Click here for more on The Casket Girls.

Out of the ordinary events like this seem to put everyone in a good mood. It set a perfect stage for my evening, which included a long outdoor dinner at Trader Louie’s and a great show at The Sparetime with Heyrocco and Deep Search (photos to come).

In the photos below, you can see Mangue Banzima at work with four guys on the sidewalk — he’s the photographer and blogger for Qui Style in Savannah, which captures fashion on the street.
