This season has had its fair share of fantastic occasions, parties, and programs already. As far as events go, this week and especially this weekend are busting at the seams. Here are a few we have highlighted on our calendar.
Leadership NOW! – Tuesday, March 4
Savannah Jaycees monthly lecture series is this Tuesday. The speaker will be Cliff McCurry of Seacrest Partners. Dinner, drinks, motivation, dedication…not bad for a Tuesday.
“Look Again” gallery talk – Thursday, March 6
Curator Melissa Messina will take a closer look at an exhibition of collaborative paintings by New York-based artists Tim Rollins and Kids of Survival. “RIVERS” features works inspired by historic and literary narratives of the South.
Savannah Stopover Music Festival - Thursday to Saturday
At this point, you probably have your schedule made out for Stopover. So many bands, so many bars— only three days! While you’re making plans to see the talented traveling musicians who are on their way to South by Southwest, make sure to check out some of our own fantastic local bands during the festival.
Don’t forget to purchases your pass in advance.

If you were into the Athens music scene back at the end of the last century, there’s a good chance you were obsessed with a band called The Glands who released 2 massively praised albums before the band called it quits. They have reunited and will play two shows this summer, one of which is in Savannah!

An art opening was held on Wednesday, March 9, from 6-9 p.m. in the Starland District as a kick off to the Savannah Stopover Music Festival. SCAD students and local artists designed 40 band posters that were on display for the Stopover Concert Poster Contest, sponsored by Primary Art Supply. Each poster used Microsoft’s QR Code Tag technology so that when scanned, viewers can receive additional information about the band and the festival.
