At the Thunderbird Inn, we don’t just call ourselves “the hippest hotel in Savannah.” No, we live up to the title by being a cool place and by doing cool things. That made us anatural to be the hotel sponsor for Bandwagon 2012 – a Savannah poster art festival that also includes a major record show/sale, not to mention a free street concert with live music. Thunderbird Inn was also the 2011 lodging sponsor.
Posters? Vinyl? Hey, they rocked the Sixties!
Vinyl wasn’t today’s little niche for sound fanatics, it flat-out ruled – if you had your own music, it was on vinyl. And our walls were plastered with posters, that affordable, accessible art form. We had psychedelic ones, black light versions, flocked black light versions, all those variations on the “Endless Summer” poster, you name it. Pop culture in the Sixties is where posters and records met up and got married.
Check out how poster art has evolved, and even try your hand at some printmaking during Bandwagon. Oh, and did we mention – it’s free! It runs Saturday and Sunday, March 3 and 4, and the big street dance is on Montgomery Street Saturday night. The locations – the Savannah College of Art and Design Student Center and the street in front of Seed Eco Lounge – are easy walking distance from the Thunderbird. Registered hotel guests can leave their car in our lot and party their hearts out.
We’re glad we got on the Bandwagon! Read more at www.attendbandwagon, which has a cool guide you can download. Thunderbird Inn lodging in downtown Savannah is sold out for the Bandwagon event.
P.S. Georgia’s biggest musical event just got news in USAToday, so we encourage you to make early reservations for Savannah Music Festival (March 22 – April 7, 2012) — $89 weekday / $129 weekend deals at The Thunderbird Inn downtown.
