Savoy to headline Fillmore on 11/11/11

Dang! If you would've told us a decade ago that local acts would be playing shows at a place the size of the Fillmore on with stunning frequency -- read more than once a year or on a very special occasion, generally warming up the stage for a higher profile band from out of town -- we'd just go ahead and assume you'd just flown in from Crazytown.

Alas, though, here we are in 2011, and we've seen acts like 3OH!3, Pretty Lights, DeVotchKa, Yonder Mountain String Band and String Cheese Incident, among others, all graduate to those ranks. Add Savoy to that growing list. We've just learned that the New York-by-way-of-Colorado band has scored its very own headlining gig at the Fillmore on Friday, November 11. Not too shabby. Exactly a year ago, Savoy was at the Ogden. Tickets go on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m.
