This being my first Statts Fest, I can say without a doubt that this event is one of the defining examples of solidarity in the Savannah music scene. I learned about the event that led to Statts Fest’s conception early on during my period of transition to a Savannah local, but actually attending the event was a totally different experience. To see an entire community rally around a common cause so fervently isn’t something that I wouldn’t expect from Savannah, but to actually see it in action and going off without a hitch is a completely different story. It was also really refreshing to so many of the acts appreciate the opportunity to help out with such an awesome cause.
There’s not much more that I can say that hasn’t already been said by Tom and Bill so I’ll stop with my gushing and get to the photos! Be sure to hit the jump for the full set.
