    Portland's Wizard Rifle makes weird and wonderful art-metal songs that would sit comfortably between Lightning Bolt and Melt-Banana on a mixtape. Despite being a damn good band name, it's also an apt descriptor; Wizard Rifle specialize in doomy, trippy assault, like a psychedelics-fueled World of Warcraft battle happening in your ears.

    BARRELHOUSE SOUTH is packed; if you've wandered down Congress Street on a weekend night, you know this, as getting around or inside the venue takes some expert navigational skills. The concept of free shows seems to have been a smart one.

    IN HIS column last week , Connect editor-in-chief Jim Morekis highlighted the irony of the National Trust for Historic Preservation coming to Savannah just as many locals are practically coming to fisticuffs over downtown's development free-for-all. Other than opining that it seems totally bananas to put a huge arena a mile away from the major hotel sector...and a ballpark on sinking landfill...and a bunch of chain stores on a storied commercial strip, I try to stay out of the fray.
