Savannah Stopover Adds Torres, Team Spirit and Velvet Caravan To 2014 Lineup

The Stopover team announced today that Nashville’s Torres has been added to the 2014 Festival lineup, headlining City Coffee on Saturday, March 8th. The critically acclaimed singer song-writer has been compared to the likes of Cat Power and PJ Harvey. Her 2013 debut album garnered stellar reviews from Pitchfork, NME and many others.

Also added is Brooklyn’s Team Spirit fronted by Ayad Al Adhamy of Passion Pit fame. The foursome just released a Daytrotter session featuring two tracks from their forthcoming debut album on VICE Records/Warner Brothers. The band will bring the raucous brand of rock and roll to Hang Fire on Thursday, March 6th.

Team Spirit: Bio Page

Savannah favorites Velvet Caravan, hot off of their new album release party on February 1st, have also been confirmed to play the festival. They’ll kick things off at Moon River’s outdoor venue on Saturday, March 8th. (bio coming soon)

These additions have triggered a few changes to the Stopover Schedule so make sure you check the sched for the latest and greatest.

A few other things to note: three bands have had to change their schedules around for March, forcing them to miss their Stopover dates. The UK’s THUMPERS now has to fly straight into SXSW and Eternal Summers and GEMS had to re-route their plans. We hope to see them all at Stopover V in 2015!
