The Whigs
Beach Day

The Savannah Stopover festival might only be three years old but it already has the makings of a go-to festival. There's the charming, walkable downtown area with venues just steps from each other. You can tote your (inexpensive) alcoholic beverage around the streets. The price for a three-day pass was an insanely-reasonable $75. The festival schedule felt manageable with only about 100 bands on the docket. (And just about all of these bands are heading to Austin this week.) There were a lot of hallmarks to SXSW, and indeed one person offered up the observation that the current size of Stopover reminded him of the very early years of SXSW.

But the thing that is so important to any festival, whether it be SXSW or Coachella, is having a strong line-up. And Stopover very much had this. From Mac DeMarco on the first night through Turbo Fruits at the very last, there were solid bands up and down the schedule. It was extremely well curated. On the second day, the free Of Montreal concert in Forsyth Park was weird and wonderful among the Spanish Moss. It was the Athens band's first time performing in Savannah. Chris Cohen and Ducktails were excellent over at Knights of Columbus a little later in the evening.

And the all-Georgia lineup at the same venue on Day Three (3/9) featuring Whaleboat, Ponderosa and The Whigs was raucous. I'm sure the festival's plan, as it should be, is to continue growing. My hope is that it doesn't grow too much. Or that it at least doesn't strive to SXSW levels of attendance or insanity. Its location and size make it a perfect alternative to that monster a few states to the West.

You can check out pictures from Day 1 and Day 2 are here. More pics from Savannah Stopover Day 3 are below.

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.

St. Vincent

In addition to everything else we posted, today, here's some more, and some reminders too...

Hope to see you at Pianos tonight, unless of course you're celebrating Yom Kippur which started at sundown (or under 21).

It's also National Voter Registration Day, as miss Annie Clark has so kindly reminded us above. Did you register to vote yet? We also would like to know, however, what's the deal with the Tiny Tim photo in the background?

That photo is actually part of a series orchestrated by HeadCount where over 200 celebrities, including Jeff Tweedy, were photographed with "Register to Vote" clipboards. You can see them all here.

Speaking of St. Vincent, it's David Byrne / St. Vincent Week here in NYC. Their first of three area shows together happens tonight at the Beacon Theater, as Kelly Pratt pointed out in the latest edition of his tour diary.

Neil Young has started a Twitter account and will be taking your questions via it in October. Right now, though, @NeilYoung seems to handled by a marketing intern.

Prince took a 40 minute encore break last night in Chicago.

Paper Bag Records just released the free David Bowie tribute album, Paper Bag Records vs. The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, with covers by Austra & CFCF, PS I Love You, The Luyas, Yamantaka/Sonic Titan and more. Download it for free HERE.

Speaking of Yamantaka/Sonic Titan, they performed at the Polaris Prize Gala in Toronto last night, but ended up losing to Feist.

Converge is back with "Shame In the Way" a new song from their forthcoming LP All We Love We Leave Behind. Stream that new track, coupled with an interview with vocalist Jacob Bannon in the latest Show Now Mercy at Pitchfork. Look for the LP on 10/9 via Epitaph.

Sweden's Terrible Feelings have released a new video for "Next Round's On You" from their Shadows LP. Check that out below.

Field Report visited the A.V. Club's HQ in Chicago and took on the Sufjan Stevens mainstay "Chicago" for their Undercover series. Check out the clip below.

You can also check out Thee Oh Sees' side of the new Famous Class' "LAMC" 7" series which they were selling last night at their very sweaty Death by Audio show. It's streaming below.

Main Mountain Goat John Darnielle talks (vegetarian) food - including pizza, popcorn and, yes, hummus over at FoodRepublic. He and the band will be in NYC next month.

Field Report at BV-Hopscotch Day Party - 9/7/12 (via BrooklynVegan Instagram)
Field Report

Field Report (aka former DeYarmond Edison member Chris Porterfield) put out his self titled debut LP this week (9/11) via Partisan Records. Like the singles led us to believe, it's a bare, somber folk album with a twang to it, and a pretty enjoyable listen. You can stream the entire thing below.

As mentioned, Field Report will be touring with Aimee Mann later this month, but before that tour begins, they'll play a last-minute release show in NYC this week, which happens at Union Pool on Thursday (9/13). Admission for that show is $7 at the door and we're also giving away a pair of tickets. Details on how to enter to win tix are below.

Field Report also just played our BrooklynVegan day party at Hopscotch in Raleigh, NC this past Friday (9/7). A picture of their set from that show is above, and a list of all dates, those contest details, and the album stream are below.

Aimee Mann

As reported previously, Aimee Mann will embark on a North American tour that lasts from late September through middle November. The shows include an NYC stop at Town Hall on October 27 and tickets are on sale now. It's just been announced that fellow friend of comedy Ted Leo (who is working on a new LP) will open for that show,  as well as many other dates on the second half of that tour. He'll be playing solo. Field Report open on the first leg.

The tour starts shortly after the release of Aimee Mann's The Charmer, which is out on September 17. Five years in the making, The Charmer is influenced by the ""super pop of the '70s and '80s." See how that description fares in the title track above, and preorder that via her site now.

Field Report (aka Chris Porterfield) releases his debut LP on September 11 via Partisan Records., Check out the track "Chico The American", along with all tour dates, below...

Field Report @ Hotel Vegan (by Tim Griffin)
BV Day Party @ Hotel Vegan on 3/17/2012

Many know the story of how when DeYarmond Edison broke up, Justin Vernon started Bon Iver and the remaining members formed Megafaun. Well apparently, there's a missing piece to that puzzle that the world recently learned about. The remaining DeYarmond Edison member, Chris Porterfield, "hung back in Wisconsin" while Bon Iver and Megafaun continued releasing records and touring, and began working on his project, Field Report which he has since expanded to a full live band.

Like Justin Vernon's early solo work, Field Report creates a sparsely textured, slow-burning take on contemporary folk, though Chris has far more of a rootsy twang in his voice than his fellow ex-DeYarmond Edison spinoffs. Check it out for yourself by downloading two tracks, "I Am Not Waiting Anymore" and "Fergus Falls," above or streaming them below.

Field Report, who have not played NYC yet but just finished a tour opening for Megafaun which brought them back to Austin, made their live debut at SXSW where they played Hotel Vegan on a stage with other folk artists including ex-Fleet Foxes drummer J. Tillman's new Father John Misty project. More pictures from Field Report's set, and the song streams (when Soundcloud stops being down), are below.
