Over the last few years, South by Southwest has grown so large that it’s actually spawning mini-festivals in the weeks before and after to take advantage of roadtripping musicians. On the east coast, the Savannah Stopover will host 70+ musicians from March 7-9, 2013. Highlights this year include a free concert in Forsyth Park featuring of Montreal and closing out the fest is Jonathan Toubin’s New York Night Train Soul Clap & Dance Off.
Savannah fun fact: There’s no open container law in the south’s most hospitable city so feel free to take it to the streets.
