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.
West Coast janglers Craft Spells are heading East next month to play Cincinatti's Midpoint Music Festival (September 27 - 29) which also features the likes of Grizzly Bear, The Walkmen, Dirty Projectors, Sleigh Bells and many more. Tickets for the fest are still available and the whole line-up is at the bottom of this post.
Before the festival, Craft Spells will be in NYC for a show at Glasslands on September 24 with new new romantics Ice Choir. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
You can stream Craft Spells' new-ish EP, Gallery, plus check out the whole Midpoint Music Fest line-up, below.
After moving their show from upstate to Brooklyn Bowl which was then followed by a 50% reduction in ticket price, Saturday's Daytrotter show is now not happening at all, as the bowling alley venue has cancelled all Saturday and Sunday shows "due to the hurricane. Ticket refunds will be offered." No bowling or food on those days either. Affected artists include JBM, We Are Augustines, Guards, Doug Paisley, Des Ark, Christopher Paul Stelling, The Loom, Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra and (DJ) Talib Kweli.
Daytrotter's Monday show at the Living Room is still on though, and you can head to Brooklyn Bowl tonight (8/26) for a free show by Slowdance. The Dex Romweber Duo and Birds of Avalon show tonight was also cancelled, but that was a coincedence.

Daytrotter is presenting the 'Barnstormer 5,' the website's first East Coast tour, at the end of this month into early September. Various bands play on various dates from New Hampshire to Iowa. All dates are listed below.
As of today, the tour hits NYC twice. First on August 27 at Brooklyn Bowl (instead of Ghent, NY where the show was originally scheduled) with JBM, We Are Augstines, Guards, Doug Paisley, Des Ark, Christopher Paul Stelling, and The Loom. Then again on August 29 at The Living Room with Cerebral Ballzy (??!?), Princeton, Guards, and We Are Augustines. Tickets, not cheap, are available for the whole tour including both NYC dates, but we are also giving away a pair of tickets to each NYC show. Details on how to win, with all dates (most with White Rabbits and some with Deer Tick), below....

Sea of Bees @ SXSW 2011
The Loom are back from a trip down to SXSW and will play a Brooklyn show tonight (April 9th) at Southpaw with My Cousin The Emperor (their CD release party for The Subway EPs), Sgt Dunbar, The Hobo Banned, and Yellowbirds. The show is one of two local dates on tap for the folkies, as the band will also join Sea of Bees at Sycamore on 4/23. That's two weeks before The Loom head out for a week-long tour with Christopher Paul Stelling that gets as far west as Madison, Wisconsin. All dates are listed below.
Also back from SXSW, Sea of Bees (the musical project of Julie Ann Bee) will be SUPER busy towards the end of April! The Sycamore show is one of eleven shows in eleven days, all at various NYC venues. The NYC tour kicks off at The Living Room on 4/21 followed by appearances at Spike Hill, Sycamore, The Rock Shop (with Smoosh), Pianos, Cake Shop, Mercury Lounge, Joe's Pub, Rockwood Music Hall, Glasslands (with Takka Takka), and Sycamore before a final show back at The Living Room on 5/1. In May and June Sea of Bees will be out on tour with Stornoway (one more NYC venue included). All dates are below.
One of the SXSW shows that the Loom played was the Muzzle of Bees Backyard Barbecue. We posted a set of pictures from that. A video is below. One of the SXSW shows that Sea of Bees played, in addition to an NPR "tiny concert" taping, was the "Tree House Diddly" on 3/17 on the roof of Cheers Shot Bar while the sun set. Those pictures are in this post and continue with the NPR video and the other stuff, below...
