The Bright Light Social Hour w/ Old You 

When: Wed., Oct. 5 2011
Price: $8 (adv.)
The Pour House may want to step up security when the Bright Light Social Hour gets to town. The last time the Austin, Texas-based band played Savannah, crowd-surfing commenced and someone fell through a window before the smoke alarm went off and the cops showed up with a paddy wagon. Looking at their well-documented tour diaries, it seems that this quartet of hairy, funky rockers likes to drink bourbon in the morning and invite the entire audience back to their hotel room. They may need a bigger suite sooner or later if their buzz grows like it has lately. At this year’s SXSW, they virtually swept the Austin Music Awards, winning Band of the Year (over Bob Schneider, Los Lonely Boys, and Okkervil River, to name a few), while individual members took Best Keyboard Player, Best Bass Player, Best Producer, and Album of the Year for their self-titled debut. That’s no small feat in a musical city like Austin. But the Bright Light Social Hour know how to bring the musical heat. From belting out harmonies to rockin’ keytar solos to epic bass/drum grooves, it’s no wonder these guys can’t stop the party once they get off stage. Local quartet Old You opens at 9 p.m.
