To all who are impatiently awaiting all-things High Water, it's been a satisfying past few days. First off, the artists have been announced for Low Tide Social, the fest's food, drink, and music-filled kickoff happening on the evening of Fri. April 20. This year, Charleston's Garage Cuban Band will entertain the crowd over a heapin' helpin' of the Smoking Pot's Lowcountry boil and oysters from the Seaborn Oyster Company. The Shrimp Records Family Band will also make an appearance with a tribute to the late great Tom Petty — something they crew has done plenty of in the past.  Then today the fest announced the weekend's schedule, and it reveals a pretty killer slot for Charleston's SUSTO sandwiched between High Water founders/curators/Lowcountry residents Shovels and Rope and the evening's headliner, Band of Horses, whose frontman Ben Bridwell and drummer Creighton Barrett are also locals.
