This Weekend in Memphis Music
This city is basically begging you not to go out of town this weekend, because while it is Memorial Day and the open road and/or gas station rotisserie hot dogs might be calling your name, Memphis musicians are pulling out the stops over the next three days. Check it out:
- Tonight at The Warehouse, Grace Askew will be throwing a shin dig to celebrate the release of Until They Lay Me Down to Rest, her first full-length record. The show will feature Jeremy Stanfill and Dave Cousar with a special appearance by Richard Ford. Cover is $10 (or you can buy the album) and includes free wine, beer and munchies.
- Tomorrow at Minglewood Hall, check out the Marvin Gaye Tribute Concert, featuring the MRC’s own Keia Johnson. The concert starts at 7 p.m. (doors at 6 p.m.) and you can head here to grab your advance tickets.
- Sunday night at Nocturnal, Shabbadoo will celebrate the release of their LP There You Are. They’ll be joined by Cold Blooded Three and Wampa. The cover is $5 and you can enjoy $2 beers all the live-long night.
- All weekend on SiriusXM’s The Loft, you can catch the Big Star Tribute Concert recorded live at the Levitt Shell on May 15. They’ll be airing it on Saturday at 5 p.m. and then re-airing it Sunday at 6 a.m. and Monday at 5 p.m. (All times Central Standard.)
