Mark your calendar: More Savannah Music Festival
Justin Townes Earle will be here for the Savannah Music Festival

The Savannah Music Festival’s late additions — a couple of pop concerts — will be announced at a wine ‘n’ dine event this Thursday (Jan. 26) at Tubby’s restaurant in Thunderbolt.

Tickets are already on sale for the bulk of the shows — the jazz, classical, bluegrass and world music stuff — for the March 22–April 2 festival.

The “hipper” shows, traditionally, are booked later than the rest of the SMF, and therefore can’t be confirmed until a later date.

We can tell you that one of the shows will be a double bill including singer/songwriter Justin Townes Earle,  the son of Texas legend Steve Earle.

For your $20 advance ticket ($25 at the door), you get food, beer and wine, a performance by the Train Wrecks, giveways to SMF and other local events, and access to pop–show tickets before they go on sale to everybody else.

For advance tickets, contact

As soon as the shows are made public, we’ll post the information online.

Her aim is true

Twenty-six-time Grammy winner Alison Krauss and her band, Union Station, will perform in the Johnny Mercer Theatre Wednesday, April 4. Tickets, $62 and $47, will go on sale this Friday (Jan. 27). Krauss and the band are touring behind the acclaimed Paper Airplane album.

Check your Pulse

The Telfair Museums’ Pulse Art & Technology Festival returns Feb. 27–March 4. The featured exhibition is a 10–year survey of works by the renowned light sculptor Leo Villareal. The artist will give a talk Feb. 27.

Pulse, of course, is Savannah’s forward–thinking creative festival, and as such is always one of the year’s most anticipated events. Among the high and low–tech performers: Pamela Z, Andre Ruschkowski, the Loud Objects, the Medeaology Collective and the Karmetik Machine Orchestra.

The coolest part: Everything is free. See for details.
