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?
It doesn't surprise me in the least that Chain of Flowers has shared a stage with bands like Eagulls and A Place to Bury Strangers. This Welsh outfit keeps is deliciously dark and more than a bit noisy, providing the perfect amount of petulance in their controlled chaos. I strongly suspect that they'd be one of my favorite bands of the entire lineup from a live point of view.
