Savannah Stopover releases detailed 3-day schedule, confirms 10 venues

Savannah Stopover has released the detailed schedule for the 90+ bands in over 100 performances in downtown Savannah from March 6-8.

So you can quit reading this post, and go check it out at the Stopover site or with Sched, a great tool for selecting and sharing your schedule.

Here’s the list of venues:
Knights of Columbus
The Jinx
Hang Fire
City Coffee
Congress Street Social Club
Club One
Moon River Beer Garden
Abe’s On Lincoln
The Artist Lounge (details coming next week)
Ellis Square

And an astute reader who knows Savannah’s venues might realize immediately that a number of those are all-ages. A special under-21 pass is on sale effective today. City Coffee on MLK (just south of Carlito’s) is among those all ages venues and the most surprising entry on the list. Abe’s, a really small space, is another interesting addition to this year’s lineup.

The opening night concert and band poster exhibition will be in the Beer Garden at Moon River. That show will feature St. Paul & The Broken Bones.

Kylesa will play at 1 a.m. at The Jinx on the opening night of the festival, capping a showcase of the band’s new-ish label Retro Futurist.

The spacious Knights of Columbus hall on Liberty Street will be home to a number of headliners, including Wye Oak on March 6, Those Darlins on March 7, and Oberhofer and Small Black on March 8.

The free concert in Ellis Square on March 8 from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. will be headlined by The Weeks.

I know that I’m already looking at some really tough decisions. Like on opening night, when Wye Oak is at the Knights at 11:30, J Roddy Walston & The Business is on at midnight at Congress Street Social Club, and Future Islands performs at Club One at midnight 12:30 a.m. — and of course other bands are playing across those slots at other locations.

Exciting stuff.

Keep in mind that the schedule is subject to change and that there will be some “surprise” performances that might not be announced till the last minute, literally.
