The Strokes

SXSW is no doubt a great way to see a lot of bands in a short amount of time and can be a lot of fun. But it can also be a little much for some. If you'd like to see many of the same bands but in a more genteel setting, you might be interested in The Savannah Stopover which happens the weekend before SXSW (March 7 - 9) in at various clubs in Savannah, Georgia. Over 100 bands will play, including Of Montreal, Merchandise, Mac DeMarco, Chelsea Light Moving, Hunters, Braids, Delicate Steve, Turbo Fruits, Ducktails and loads more.

Tickets ($30 per day or $75 for three-day pass) are on sale now and more info is at Savannah Stopover's website. The full announced lineup is below.

The actual beauty of the Stopover is that it's cheap, you can carry a beer from venue to cool weird venue, and be as close to the stage as you want for interesting bands. Which is to say, I'm a local and I'm going for the third straight year.

"If I was pansy, I actually would be looking forward to this."

Fair enough.

This is one of the best lineups i've seen for a festival. Doesn't focus on the mainstream bullshit music of todays world (and most festivals) but tries to emphasize on REAL music and getting those newer bands out there...much respect Stopover, much respect

Heard this the other day. For some reason I had to download this from Itunes. Keep up the good work. Ridgewood FTW!
