This weekend in Memphis music

August 20, 2010

The temperatures have dipped down into the double-digits again! This is cause for celebration. Get yourself out and hear some live music this weekend — you have so many choices that it would be easy to make this an all-you-can-listen buffet. You can even support a good cause while you jam! Doesn’t get much better than that.
