The Tybee Post Theater presents Tybee City Limits with Jason Bible and The Train Wrecks, CcWitt and Lyn Avenue, and singer/songwriter Sarah Poole

tybee city limitsIt’s the first installment of the Tybee Post Theaters  new monthly music series, Tybee City Limits, the Best in Live Local Music, which will quickly become the most talked-about local music programming on the coast. Each month Tybee City Limits, modeled after the long-running Austin City Limits television show, will feature three acts– a singer/songwriter and two of the Coastal Empire’s hottest bands — under one roof in one great show!

Poole’s a self- taught musician with a smokey indie/folk voice that can’t quite be compared to anyone else. She says some of her influences include Nirvana, Stevie Nicks, Florence and the Machine, Mumford and Sons, and First Aid Kit. 

Savannah country band Lyn Avenue fronted by the dynamic Cc Witt is up next. Lyn Avenue officially began in 2010 as a pop-rock band playing the basements of Savannah. It wasn’t until 2011, when lead singer Witt, wrote the song “Everyday Guardian Angel,” a pure country ballad, that audiences truly started to take notice. Since then, the band has been enthusiastically embracing their southern roots.

The Train Wrecks are a hard-working band of songwriters and performers.fronted by Jason Bible, who love nothing more than good songs and a good show. They deliver a dynamic, original blend of Americana, ranging from outlaw alt-country and bluegrass to rootsy rock and beyond, all with a distinctive Southern swagger. They’ve opened for legends like Jerry Jeff Walker and BB King, and have been dubbed the Hardest Gigging Band in Savannah. 

Our MC is Thomas Oliver, host of the monthly Savannah Songwriters Series, a songwriters-in-the-round show the first Sunday of every month at Johnny Harris Restaurant in Savannah. WRHQ’s 105.3 Quality Rock is promoting Tybee City Limits and will broadcast segments of the show on its Second Sunday podcast.
