There are a few writeups highlighting the 3 label showcases happening at this year’s Savannah Stopover festival: Retro Futurist, Soft Science Records & Furious Hooves.
"Furious Hooves is known not only for their musicians, but also for their limited and handmade pressings, which will be sure to attract collectors of all varieties."
Saturday, March 8th from 2-7pm Furious Hooves will present a free all-ages label showcase at Congress Street Social Club for the Savannah Stopover Festival in Savannah, GA.
Bands include Hallucinex (Richmond, VA), Bedroom (Nashville, TN), Blackrune (Savannah, GA), Anteo (Blacksburg, VA) and mumbledust (Savannah, GA). Blackrune & mumbledust have both been interviewed by Do Savannah as they spotlight local acts performing at Stopover IV. Read Blackrune’s interview here and mumbledust’s interview here.
Merch! Merch! Merch! We’ve been working extremely hard and will have plenty of stickers & pins, some hand-numbered posters, and even some extremely limited screenprinted shirts. Also, if you come down for the festival, you may spot some early-pressings from our new division of Furhoof: Sixth Man available for sale as well as some new & old furhoof pressings, some exclusive to stopover, plus a number of other surprises.

We are extremely stoked to announce the new division of Furhoof: Sixth Man.
When the “starting five” handmade-runs aren’t enough for the road, the sixth man comes in and carries the team onward. Furhoof: Sixth Man will include “larger” manufactured runs of new upcoming releases as well as some represses from our catalog.
Some Furhoof: Sixth Man editions currently in the works include: Bedroom Toys EP, mumbledust Vacations EP w/bonus Alternate Vacations EP and Hallucinex Online Birthday EP.
We are thrilled for this next step in furhoof.
