Savannah Stopover announced 37 of the acts performing at the 2014 festival (March 6-8) during a brilliant, sold out show headlined by Futurebirds at The Jinx last Thursday night. (Click here for our post about the initial lineup; lots more bands will be added later.)
Triathalon — a Savannah-based quartet with a sound evolving from surf rock into something more complex — opened the show. They’ll be headed off next week on an East Coast tour presented by The Blue Indian.
Then New Madrid took the stage — and took over the stage. I love when bands have their own lights, and I don’t just say that because I’m a sometime-photographer. The lights melded perfectly with the dense, upbeat sound.
And then came Futurebirds, performing in Savannah since their 2012 Savannah Music Festival gig at Trustees Theater — a venue about 10x the capacity as The Jinx.
