For the third year, the Savannah Stopover Music Festival (March 7-9) capitalizes on the 912’s proximity to I-95, capturing some of the hottest acts in indie folk, hip-hop, electronica, bluegrass and country as they head south and then west toward Austin, Texas, for the SXSW festival.  More than 100 bands—including local faves City Hotel, Lovely Locks and The Train Wrecks—will perform in 11 venues scattered throughout downtown, including two debut sites: B&D Burgers’ new location at 209 W. Congress St., and the Ships of the Sea Maritime Museum’s North Garden.
