Looking for some fun and great live music this weekend in Memphis? Here are a few of our picks!
You might’ve heard that Bar DKDC recently flipped the switch on a new menu (Asian inspired!) but you may not have heard that tonight the dive will host the debut of the Maitre D’s, a Booker T and the MGs cover band featuring Joe Restivo, Adam Woodard, Frank McLallen and Graham Winchester. They’ll perform the renowned Stax house band’s hits starting at 11 p.m. for just $5. All the details are here.
If you want to get a little rowdier — hit up Newby’s, where the Mighty Souls Brass Band is opening for the Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Get the scoop here and get down to some serious trombonin’.
There’s tons on the plate for families this weekend. Let’s start with the September edition of Rock’n’Romp, one of our favorite local music organizations. The Romp will be at the Mid-South Maze on Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. The line-up features Wind vs. Sun, Tanks and the Mighty Souls Brass Band. The cost is just $5 for adults (with a kiddo) and that includes free beer, Central BBQ, and food from Tom’s Tiny Kitchen, Trolley Stop Market and Whole Foods. The maze is also offering discounts (adults are just $4, kids $2 and free under 5), so come early or stay late to navigate your way through!
There’s more fun to be had for the fam at the Mid- South Fair! Enjoy (what should be) great weather, food, rides and concerts at the 157th Annual Mid-South Fair at the Landers Center. It kicks off today and runs through Sept. 29. On Saturday night, the Overton Rock Band will hit the stage at 5 p.m., followed by performances from American Idol’s Nick Boddington at 7 p.m. and Michael Oby at 8 p.m. General admission is $10, $5 for youth ages 5-12 and seniors ages 55 and up.
Looking for something a little more…adult? Get saucy with the Tennessee Vaudeville Revue Burlesque show at the Hi-Tone from 9 – 11:30 p.m.
The rain may have put a damper on John Paul Keith’s show, originally scheduled for tonight at the Levitt Shell, but no worries — it’s been rescheduled for Sunday at 7:30 p.m.! JPK will perform favorites from his past records and songs from his new album Memphis Circa 3AM. (Get your sneak peak on Spotify here, but be warned — this album was meant to be heard on vinyl!)
