For more on the great show at the Jepson on Friday night that’s the culminating event of TEDxCreativeCoast, check out my column today, the great piece in last week’s Connect Savannah by Bill DeYoung, or Bill’s excellent interview with Givers this week.

It’s sure to be a great night of music, all produced by the Savannah Stopover (if you haven’t noticed the hard work of Kayne Lanahan, Summer Teal Simpson, and others, you’ve been lying pretty low this spring). PBR is a sponsor and will be providing free beer (I hope not too much!) to anyone 21 and up who pays their $10 admission. The show is for ages 18 and up.
