Look, South by SouthWest is a grind of a festival — which is why you need to warm up those festie muscles with the Savannah Stopover (March 7-9, 2013). It takes place the weekend preceeding SXSW and features loads of bands on their way to Texas.
New acts added to an already full bill include Chelsea Light Moving (Featuring Thurston Moore) VietNam, PUJOL & Fossil Collective. They’ll join of Montreal, Chelsea Light Moving (featuring Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth), The Whigs, Merchandise, Mac DeMarco, Ducktails, Dent May, and Turbo Fruits.
Hell, even old Jay Leno has heard of the show…
