mark your calendars: 2nd annual Revival Fest slated for 9/20

Post by Revival Fest. The 2013 Revival Fest (organized by the folks at MusicFile Productions and Savannah Stopover) was one of the best full days of music that we’ve had in a long time around these parts. (Click here for…

13 standout Savannah shows in 2013

Check out hissing lawns’ year-end posts by Petee Worrell, Anna Chandler, Kayne Lanahan of MusicFile Productions, Tom Cartmel, and Larry Jack, who saw a mere 626 live performances at Savannah venues in 2013 . . . Here I’m focusing on…

One final Revival Fest post – lots of photos

I wrote some nice things about Revival Fest in Do this week, and I’ve already posted galleries to this blog with photos of the Cedric Burnside Project, Field Report, Whiskey Shivers, and Matrimony. So this post has some photos of…
