I’m way behind in terms of writing about shows at the Savannah Stopover — and posting pics too — so I’ll just have to get caught up after the weekend is over.
Early evening rain disrupted the schedule a little bit yesterday — some great bands scheduled to play at Ships of the Sea ended up being moved to Blowin’ Smoke late, which meant the restaurant basically had nonstop music all evening.
I ended up combining marathon and sprint, seeing all or part: Country Mice at Congress Street Social Club, Tony Beasley and Whaleboat at The Jinx, Christopher Paul Stelling at the Telfair Academy, an aborted attempt to get into the jam-packed Jepson (line out front for a long time) for Born Gold and Grimes, Betsy Kingston and the Crowns at Locos, Preacher and the Knife at The Jinx, Triathalon at Locos, The Guards at The Jinx, Wowser Bowser at Locos, and The Knocks at Live Wire. (The proximity of The Jinx and Locos sure makes things easy if they both have bands I want to hear.)I’ll say more about some of those shows in an upcoming post once I have more time and sort through my photos.
Click here for the schedule, which is pretty amazing.My general game plan is to take advantage of some of the early music (12-5) from Mazarine Records artists in the garden at The Ships of the Sea — hard to imagine a nicer day for that than what we’re having right now. I might end up at Blowin’ Smoke too, and maybe I’ll hit The Jinx at some point before 7, although I’m hearing really good things about The Hill and Wood (Congress St. Social Club at 6).
I will definitely be at the Telfair Academy at 7:30 for Sanders Bohlke and for at least part of Chelsea Crowell at 8:30, then probably over to Ships of the Sea again for Country Mice and The War on Drugs.
Later on? Probably Pujol and The Love Language at The Jinx, but lots of things could come up in the meantime.
