Love Your Locals: Charleston Acts Cover Charleston Acts
Lowcountry songwriter and bandleader Lindsay Holler (Matadero, Western Polaroids, Co.) has once again partnered with the Tin Roof in West Ashley to present a local showcase of bands and musicians thematically paying tribute.
On the heels and in the spirit of the well-attended “We Are the World” show at the Pour House in early January, “Love Your Locals” will assemble a variety of players and singers on the Tin Roof stage on Sun. Feb. 9 at 8 p.m.
“This was an idea that I’d been kicking around for a while,” Holler says.
“Erin Tyler [of the Tin Roof] and I were talking about upcoming shows and looking at the calendar and we thought ‘Valentine’s Day week … ‘Locals Love Locals!'”
“We’ve got a nice, eclectic group of people committed, so far,” she adds. “I haven’t come across another show like this before.”
The idea is for Charleston-based acts to pay tribute to the music of other local acts, old and current. The roster will feature singer/keyboardist Vikki Matsis, singer/guitarist Bill Carson, drummer/guitarist Nick Jenkins, singer/guitarist Ryan Bonner, ukulele-driven acoustic combo the V-Tones (pictured), singer/guitarist Aaron Levy, singer/guitarist Livy Conner, drummer/guitarist Marshall Hudson, bassist/guitarist Jonathan Gray, and several more to be announced.
The set list will feature a wild mix — from 1920s-era Charleston jazz to recent releases by the likes of Jordan Igoe, Slow Runner, and Shovels & Rope. Hopefully, someone will cover some vintage New Wave soul-rock by the Killer Whales (circa 1983).
