The start of festival season is once again upon us, and one of the first fests of the season has turned into one of the finest. Capitalizing on its location in the path of many SXSW-bound bands, Savannah Stopover's 2017 lineup looks incredibly tempting. If I was going down there myself, these are the bands I'd just about move heaven and earth to try to see. And if you're free between March 9-11, why not head on down to Savannah and see what all the fuss is about for yourself?
The more I hear of Splashh, the more hooked I become. The short version is that these tenderfoots from across the pond marry together the brassy, stomping swagger of glam rock and the 1990s Britpop Invasion's knack for writing a catchy, yet earnest, pop rock ditty. Their songs explode with a wide-eyed, youthful abandon, and I'm sure they'd be one heck of a fun band to see in the flesh.
