Savannah Stopover announces first few dozen bands for the 2014 festival

Most of my posts about the local Savannah music scene, especially the club and indie scene, are now being made to the music blog hissing lawns. So you might want to check out that site, or even like hissing lawns on Facebook, if you want more music news, photos, and the like. We are also on Twitter.

So there is already a post at hissing lawns, which is by the way named in honor of Joni Mitchell, about last night’s announcement of a few dozen bands that have been booked for the 2014 Savannah Stopover from March 6-8.

Stopover founder and CEO announced a few of the key names last night at The Jinx after an excellent set by Triathalon. The announcement was followed by more great music — from New Madrid and Futurebirds. I hope some of the sellout audience at The Jinx will support Stopover in the spring. The festival has brought a new edge to local music programming.

Here’s the list of bands, but you can find a little more info, plus some videos and photos, over at hissing lawns:
