Coastal Ga. Weekend: Savannah And Coastal Events May 25-28

May 25, 2017

There's plenty of fun in Savannah this Memorial Day weekend. Jessica Leigh Lebos of Connect Savannah and Joshua Peacock of Do Savannah share some of their top recommendations.

Joshua's picks:

-Rock out at El Rocko as Street Clothes releases their second album, Superautomatica. The local act always puts on a fun show, this time with openers Prime Real Estate and Fat Sun. Friday, 9 p.m.

-Find more music just around the corner at the Jinx, where Cusses will perform with Baby Baby and Machine Dreams. Back with a vengeance after their hiatus, local favorites Cusses promise a high-energy show for fans. Friday, 9 p.m.-1 a.m.

-This weekend is your last chance to catch Collective Face Theatre Ensemble's production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, playing at the Savannah State Kennedy Fine Arts building. The award-winning classic by Tennessee Williams tells the story of a southern family in crisis. Friday and Saturday, 8 p.m. and Sunday, 3 p.m.; $25 general admission, $20 for students, seniors and active military.

Jessica's picks:

-Close out a beach day or kick off the holiday weekend with the Rockabilly Beach Bash at Tybee Post Theater. The Wave Slaves will bring their cool brand of surf rock, followed by Crazy Man Crazy playing favorites by Elvis, Carl Perkins and more. Friday, 8 p.m.; $15.

-For the lighter side of theater, try Savannah Repertory Theatre's rendition of Greater Tuna. The offbeat show features just two actors in 20 roles, all sending up the morals and mores of small-town Texas life. Thursday-Saturday, 8 p.m.; $20-25.

-Dance your heart out at an African Dance workshop with Mahogany Bowers at Dancing Dogs yoga. Trained in West African and South African dance, Bowers will lead a class aimed at getting your emotions out while keeping you grounded - all to the sounds of live drummers. Saturday, 1:30-3:30 p.m.; $30.

-Would-be organizers can get a start at Emergent Savannah's We Are The Catalyst: The Highlander Education Team Residency. The workshop kicks off with a conversation at Indigo Sky Community Gallery Thursday, 7:30-9 p.m. RSVP if interested.
