Nicole - GILT at The Amp, St. Augustine. Sing Out Loud Festival. Headline photo is Sunshine State at Sarbez.
Week two of St. Augustine's month long SING OUT LOUD festival is in the books.
During the month of September, pretty much anywhere in St. Augustine with a stage joins in for a "celebration of music".
Smaller venues like Nobby's and Sarbez, featuring tons of local and regional talent, are backed up by bigger headliners at St. Augustine Amphitheatre. Kurt Vile and St. Paul & The Broken Bones are some of the larger acts that have performed so far.
This past Friday and Saturday I got to check out great performances from three generations of punk rockers: Subhumans, Propagandhi and The Coathangers. These free, all ages gigs brought parental punks out in force, ensuring a future generation of "Yeah, well Subhumans was my first show", bragging rights.
This weekend features GZA of Wu-Tang Clan with a full live band, Kasey Musgraves (the only ticketed event is sold out), and garage titans The Growlers.
The Scrapple Shows curated stage at Sarbez is my pick for the best indie up and comers. Plus, their grilled cheese sandwiches are legend.
Shovels & Rope and Son Volt head line the closing weekend, September 27-29.
