The "A-Town Get Down" is a public music and arts festival that honors former SCAD student Alex Townsend. Alex was a junior when he passed away in a car accident in 2010.
Alex loved music, art and the city of Savannah. His family wanted to celebrate that love by holding this festival each year.
"The A-Town Get Down is about finding opportunities for aspiring creative people, especially on the younger side, to meet and exchange ideas and performances with more established artist and musicians, so that the inspiration can go both ways," said Tom Townsend.
The "A-Town Get Down" continues through midnight at the Charles H. Morris Center on East Broad Street.
