some Stopover odds and ends, including Lulu the Giant on GPB

I’ve already shared quick recaps + photos of my Savannah Stopover experience for day 1, day 2, and day 3, I have also posted several big galleries to the hissing lawns Facebook page. You can find those albums are here, here, and here.

I’ve got another post or two in the works, and over the next couple days we’ll be publishing Stopover reviews and galleries from several of our contributors.

But I wanted to pull a few disparate pieces together into this post.

First, big shout out to photographer Stephanie Augello, who returned to her former home to cover Savannah Stopover for Brooklyn Vegan, one of the top music blogs out there. Check out her wonderful 126-photo gallery, which includes some wonderful shots of attendees. (I look like hell, but I love her pic of Ezra Furman with me paying rapt attention in the background.)

Also, a bit shout out to Celeste Headlee and the team at GPB’s On Second Thought for making the trek down I-16 for Stopover. Celeste and company set up at The Grey on MLK. Check out her interview with Christopher Paul Stelling and give a listen to the live performance plus interview with Savannah-based Lulu the Giant (really, what a voice):

You can find more Stopover coverage from OST in the program archives.

Also, regular hissing lawns contributor Jon Waits has a gallery of Stopover photos at Savannah Magazine.

Also, I wrote a little about Stopover’s deepening relationship with the city in my Tuesday City Talk column Savannah Stopover capitalizes on history, diversity, proximity in the Savannah Morning News.

We’ll post some more links and such as we become aware of interesting links.
