Baltimore’s Sun Club has graciously stepped in and offered to play a second show at Savannah Stopover… and they are pumped and ready to party. They’ll take over Magic Man’s slot at 12 midnight on March 8th at Club One.
If you haven’t caught them yet, get ready for an insanely good time:
A huge thank you to them for rising to the occasion and helping us out.

Starting March 3rd, concertgoers can purchase Stopover Passes in person at HQ, and you will also be able to redeem the tickets you bought online for your festival wristbands and badges. Find more info on ticket redemption here.
You will also be able to buy official Stopover t-shirts and posters at HQ.

We’re heading into the homestretch with Stopover and keeping fluid is our middle name! We’ve had some bands who had to cancel their tours to SXSW and therefore Stopover. We’ve replaced them, added a couple of great new bands and shifted a few shows around. The Stopover schedule is always up to date here on the website, so make sure you check it for the latest and greatest.
2nd Shows Added:
These changes are all reflected in the official festival schedule here. Any other last-minute adjustments will be communicated via Facebook, Twitter and here on the website.
There’s a lot of new music coming from Stopover bands in the next few weeks before the festival. As part of that trend, NPR Music First Listen is featuring advances of two of the most anticipated of these releases from St. Paul and the Broken Bones, who will play our Opening Night Event on Thursday, March 6th at Moon River’s Beer Garden (album out Feb. 18) and Hurray For the Riff Raff who will play Moon River on Saturday, March 8th (album out Feb. 11).

“I’ve watched as St. Paul and the Broken Bones became one of the nation’s best live bands. Every crowd is bigger; nearly every listener locks in and becomes a raving fan. Now, the group is releasing a debut album that’s an ideal counterpart to those frenetic shows. Produced by Ben Tanner, keyboardist for the Alabama Shakes, Half the City is the album you put on after the night’s done, to chill out, make out or cry into that last drink you pour in the kitchen. It’s also the one you reach for the morning after, because you just have to memorize those grooves.”-ANN POWERS, NPR
“Hurray for the Riff Raff makes folk music that’s deeply traditional in many ways: Its instrumentation is collaborative and feels spontaneous and site-specific, perpetually more concerned with making a joyful noise than with making a radio-friendly pop song. But the band is also deeply radical, enacting change at the root of its own traditions and influences….
As a group, Hurray for the Riff Raff is, and has always been, proof that millennials are not lazy or unobservant or wandering — or, more accurately for the famously peripatetic Segarra, that not all who wander are lost. She has a voice rooted in history, making music to change the present. Hers is the voice of the future.”-KATIE PRESLY, NPR
