The MusicFile, now based in Savannah, roars back to life with a fresh Southern edge

From The MusicFile:
“Welcome to our beta version of the re-vamped MusicFile. Over the past two years, we’ve moved from New York City to beautiful Savannah,Ga., started a music festival called Savannah Stopover that takes place the weekend before SXSW each March (you need to come down for this!), launched a concert promotion and event business and in the process of all that, have sorely neglected our first born~~The MusicFile.”

Weekend shows highlight strengths, weaknesses of Savannah live music scene (lots of photos)

I haven’t been teaching this past week, so I’ve been going out a little more than usual. On the advice of a friend, I checked out Les Racquet at Live Wire Music Hall on Thursday night. A really talented trio…

New videos from Oberhofer and Each Other — two bands from Savannah Stopover opening night

On opening night of last month’s Savannah Stopover, the featured band was Oberhofer — they performed a great set under the live oaks in Telfair Square and then again considerably later at The Jinx. Since appearing in Savannah, they’ve appeared…

In praise of Savannah’s “Music March”

There was a time when it was routine — almost mandatory it seemed — for Savannahians to complain about “nothing going on.” Hard to make that argument anymore.
