Acclaimed Charleston orch-rock ensemble Lindsay Holler & The Dirty Kids just announced that their “last show” is set for Sat. May 17 at the Pour House.

After two years of musical adventure, the band is splitting amicably. City Paper tagged them as the scene’s “Most Indefatigable Band” in the recent Best of Charleston edition — mainly for Holler’s powerful and beautiful mix of jazz, classical, roots-rock, and deep folk styles. Bassist Ben Wells, percussionist Nick Jenkins, vibes player Michael Hanf, and guitarist Dave Linaburg will aim for new adventures in and outside of Charleston this summer and fall.

“We bid a tremendous farewell to some of our own, as they make their way on to other places and bigger things,” Holler stated in a recent press release. “I hold this unique group of people very close to my heart and am honored to have spent these past two years making music with them. I know I am a better person and a better musician for it!”

The frontlady says they’ll pull out all sorts of tricks at the Pour House as “one hell of a send-off.” The Hollerettes and LASSO might even show up. Chapel Hill singer/guitarist Noah Smith’s band The Never and Asheville/Knoxville-based singer/guitarist Jeff Zetner (of garage/blues trio Creech Holler) are on the bill as well.
