Gringo Star and Deep readers at Stopover in the Yard at The Grey

Gringo Star played the most recent Stopover in the Yard, a super-cool (only, this time, bloody hot) collaboration between Savannah Stopover and The Grey.

The versatile and talented Atlanta-based band has a new album coming out in August, and I’d love to see them back here in the fall. Seriously, it was really hot last Saturday — hot even for Savannah at the end of June — which obviously hampered the turnout.

Readers from the amazing non-profit Deep Center took the stage before the show and between sets. The literacy and writing initiative has achieved great successes since its 2008 founding, including being honored by Michelle Obama at the White House.

Tough lighting conditions at The Grey for these shows — seriously, I don’t know what to do with all that light — but I got a few shots of the band and the readers. More after the jump:
