Reminder: find coverage of Savannah music scene at hissing lawns

Well about 900 people now like the Savannah-based music blog hissing lawns on Facebook and over 200 people are following hissing lawns on Twitter. (hissing lawns takes its name from the great song and album by Joni Mitchell, The Hissing of Summer Lawns.)
I started the blog with a handful of other live music enthusiasts back in September, and we’re thrilled by how successful so far. I’m especially proud of the quality of hissing lawns’ photo galleries, featuring work by Tom Cartmel, Petee Worrell, Jon Waits, and me.

But we’d like to see the blog continue to grow. So if you’re interested in the Savannah music scene please check out the blog and take a second to follow on Twitter and/or on Facebook. Savannah is a pretty small media market, which makes driving traffic to a specialty blog pretty difficult. So sharing content would be much appreciated too. We’re also on the lookout for additional contributors.

A few blogging updates, i.e., where are the music posts?

If you’re wondering why I haven’t said anything here about last weekend’s Revival Fest, there are two reasons:

1. My Unplugged column in Thursday’s Do gives a bit of a review and recap of the spectacular event.
2. I’ve made several posts of photos to hissing lawns, the music blog that I got off the ground less than two weeks ago.

A new Savannah-based music blog: hissing lawns

For several years now, I’ve been telling friends, former students, and various acquaintances that they should start a Savannah-centric music blog. Every one of those people seems to agree with me that we need not just one but probably several…
