#WhyStopNow is our theme for our post Stopover blog post. After an incredible 3 days with 103 performances during Stopover V, your loyal Stopover staff is back in the saddle again and ready to announce our first batch of spring shows...and boy do we have some great surprises!
I. Wednesday, March 25th- Natalie Prass and Ryley Walker @ HangFire. We kick things off in a big way with Natalie Prass and Ryley Walker at Hang Fire on Wednesday, March 25th. If you haven’t caught Natalie’s rave reviews and glowing press, here’s the bottom line~~ it’s unlikely you’ll see this rising star in such a small venue again! TICKETS ON SALE here.
She’s on Matthew E. White’s label, Spacebomb Records, and her debut album got picked up by Columbia/Sony Records for distribution
She was Jenny Lewis’ keyboard player before she launched out on her own and yes, if you are fans of Jenny/Rilo Kiley, you’re gonna love her vibe- with a more R&B focus and a hint of a modern day Dusty Springfield.
The press can’t get enough of her:
“Why Don’t You Believe In Me” named Best New Track at Pitchfork
Natalie interviewed at Pitchfork Rising
Natalie on Billboard’s Must Hear Music
Natalie on the rise:The Guardian’s top 15: New Talent For 2015
As if that weren’t enough, we just got late word that Ryley Walker will be opening for her for this show. If you missed his performance at Trinity United Church during Stopover, you’re in for a very special treat. It was one of the Stopover staff’s favorites of the festival!
II.Saturday, April 4th- the Mountain Goats @ The Jinx. This show is sold out. If we have any no-shows, or hear of anyone who can’t use their tickets, we will post it on the Stopover twitter account. Ides of Gemini open.
III.Thursday, May 7th- X Ambassadors and DREAMERS @ Hang Fire. DREAMERS played a great set during Stopover V at Wild Wing on 3/7, opening for Reptar. It seems fitting they should come back to town exactly two months later to open for X Ambassadors, the 2013 Stopover alums. This is a must see Thursday night triple threat. Athens’ Chief Scout will open the night. TICKETS ON SALE 3/13 AT 10:00AM HERE.
IV.Friday May 29th- J Roddy Walston & The Business @ The Jinx. Yep, you heard that right; J Roddy is coming to Savannah again. Last time he played Stopover 2014 some tour dates and we haven’t stopped jumping up and down since we heard the news! If you missed his packed show at Congress St. last year during Stopover 2014, you’ve got a 2nd chance but we highly suggest you jump to it. TICKETS ON SALE 3/13 AT 10:00AM HERE.
