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.

New Zealand's Lawrence Arabia has been scooting around North America following his appearances at CMJ a few weeks ago and will be back in NYC on Friday (11/9) for a show at Pianos with Ludwig Persik, Mercies, Eureka Birds, and Former Belle. Advance tickets are available. He's got a couple more East Coast shows after that and will then head to the other side of the continent -- all tour dates are listed below.
If you haven't heard the charming baroque pop that is Lawrence's new album, The Sparrow, you can stream the whole thing below, as well as check out a video for his new single from the LP, "The Listening Times."
The full list of artists confirmed for the 2012 CMJ Music Marathon so far is below...
