Sometimes it's OK to be yesterday's news... even in this now-now-now world! As we find ourselves between Coachella weekends and the SXSW hangover has subsided, I wanted to drop some props to the 5th Annual Savannah Stopover Music Festival, which killed it from March 5-7 with 100 artists performing in just three days. As was the case last year, photographer/videographer Jon Graham was there to capture some exclusive performances from a bunch of artists for A-Sides, and they're all pretty darn swell. Watch below (all were filmed at the Stopover Artists' Lounge on West Broughton St. except the Parlour Tricks, which was at Warren Square) and enjoy yesterday's news, which is very relevant right this second.
There's a joke here since the winter was brutal but I won't go there. Penicillin Baby (including fearless leader Jon Conant of Oklahoma) delivers some trippy cool vibes. Enjoy the above shall you? You shall, and doesn't grammar rock?
We go from penicillin to diarrhea, which go hand and hand sometimes. Diarrhea Planet nailed "Ugliest Son" at the Stopover. It should come as no surprise considering all this delightfully-loud jam band does is tour and record.
Village Voice gave this band some love as Best Pop Band in New York last year, and it's no wonder why. Formerly Lily & The Parlour Tricks, there's some rugged pop goodness going on. Just take a look at the video below, and send me an email of thanks.
Watch this veteran musicians give off her trademark blues-rock feel with "Colors Of The Cold"
, which has absolutely nothing to do with the song "Colors of the Wind." That said, the So Cal stud paints a pretty damn good picture.
Tall Tall Trees
Southern Culture On The Skids
This New York singer/songwriter's music is poignant. Away from the mic, she's a trip - case in point her first album is called: Emilyn Brodsky's Greatest Tits. Here's "Any Other Way" for your listening pleasure.
About A-Sides with Jon Chattman:
Jon Chattman's music series features celebrities and artists (established or not) from all genres performing a track, and discussing what it means to them. This informal series focuses on the artist making art in a low-threatening, extremely informal (sometime humorous) way. No bells, no whistles -- just the music performed in a random, low-key setting followed by an unrehearsed chat. In an industry where everything often gets overblown and over manufactured, Jon strives for a refreshing change.
