This Weekend in Memphis Music

July 2, 2010

It’s a holiday weekend, which means you have even more time than usual to sleep off a late night of live music (or three). You’ve got no excuses, so pick a few items off the menu and enjoy:

  • Tonight at the HiTone, River City Tanlines, Dirty Streets and Chinamen will make their best effort to blow the roof off the you-know-what. It’s just $6 to get in and the show starts at 10 p.m.
  • Tonight at Nocturnal, a House of Mews benefit show. The show starts at 9 p.m. (doors at 8 p.m.), and $5 will get you a roster of great bands — Wampa, The Near Reaches, Rebecca Almond, The Adversary and Original Cyndi — plus the warm and fuzzy feeling of knowing you helped the kitties.
  • Saturday at Cafe Soul, a Star Spangled Celebration Saturday featuring D Monet and the Ess Tribe. Doors open at 9 p.m. with a $10 cover, but you can get in for $5 if you come before 10 p.m. — and if you have a July birthday it’s half-price all night long.
  • Saturday at The Rumba Room, $10 will get you in to see Caribbean Sounds, playing salsa, meringue, rumba and more. The show starts at 10:30 and ladies get in free before 10 p.m.
  • Sunday at the Blue Suede Bar and Grill, Majestik Knows Talent Sundays – July Fourth Edition. $10 will get you in the door for the Kemistry Band starting at 9 p.m.
  • Sunday at The Peabody Grand Ballroom, FreshFest 2010 featuring Laura Izibor, singer/pianist from Dublin, Ireland, R&B artist Joe, soul singer Phil Perry, jazz saxophonist Joe Johnson, R&B artist King Ellis and harpist/singer Lyrika.
  • Monday at Poplar Lounge, Memphis Hates You presents Epoch of Unlight, The Funeral Pyre, Early Graves and Process of Suffication.
