Top 5 Picks for Saturday
Lewis Del Mar
An electrified take on the acoustic indie genre, Lewis Del Mar combines a heavy hitting rhythm section, melodic vocals that will get stuck in your head, and upbeat instrumentals to forge a fun sound. I’d be impressed if you didn’t dance during this show.
For Fans Of: Cold War Kids, Milky Chance, Mona
Song to Check Out: Painting (Masterpiece)
This female fronted band is not one to miss if you’re a fan of dirty, grungy alternative rock music. Jenny Turite’s beautiful and sweet vocals contrast with the distorted and aggressive instrumentals to create a unique sound that will leave you wanting more.
For Fans Of: PUP, Bully, Screaming Females
Song to Check Out: Red Roulette
Love the band Ought? Have you fallen in love with their lead singer’s voice? If you said yes, be sure to check out his solo work at Savannah Stopover. If you said no, you’ll change your mind as soon as you hear it.
For Fans Of: The National, Interpol, Julian Plenti
Song to Check Out: Tall Glass of Water
No, there’s not going to be a bunch of hungry reptiles on stage. Instead, you’re getting some funk-influenced alternative rock that is super psychedelic. It’s fun, it’s catchy, and you definitely don’t want to miss it.
For Fans Of: Tame Impala, My Bloody Valentine, Ringo Deathstarr
Song to Check Out: Welcome to Hell
Catchy melodic vocal delivery. Infectious synth leads. A prominent and powerful rhythm section. Caveman has it all, and they’re bringing it with them to Savannah Stopover. Be sure to catch them as the sun starts to set.
For Fans Of: Ra Ra Riot, Rouge Wave, The Helio Sequence
Song to Check Out: Shut You Down
