The Kieran Daly Duo

You’ll think you’ve gone through a wormhole and wound up in 1988 when you see the bedraggled mops, Flying V guitars, wristbands and drumstick-twirling moves of these unabashedly retro Atlanta glam-metal throwbacks, led by zealous frontman Brad Cox. Charlotte’s Strip City Sinners open, with a throat-shredding set of Little Ceasar and Faster Pussycat-esque skag metal that’s as trite as their tattooed, bird-flipping press photos, but no less (guilty) pleasureable. Sat., 10 pm, The Jinx.
Impressive locals offering Southern and classic rock and modern country cover tunes. Fri. - Sat., 9 pm, Gilley’s (Hinesville).

The Denny Philips Band
Established party band (featuring the stellar musicianship and stylish ‘do of bassist Timmy Burke) with a setlist that includes several decades’ worth of pop and rock favorites. Fri. - Sat., 9 pm, Dolphin Reef Lounge (Tybee).
This touring guitarist and singing songwriter describes his music as “traditional acoustic blues/bluegrass/alternative/country/pop with regular original words, and sometimes long words too, put to a melody, and sung with a drawl.” Impressive but reclusive local indie-rock tunesmith Dave Williams opens with a rare set of newish material. Thurs., 8 pm, The Sentient Bean.
