Found the first ad for the Memphis in May celebration they have every year. This is always great fun – lots of concerts, world championship barbeque cooking contest and special events in downtown Memphis for the first weekend in May.
There are a few bands that I would love to hear – I’ll be penciling in the dates on my calendar and see if I can get over there for the festival. Friday is Keb Mo – I have been a fan of Keb for over 10 years. Even better, Doyle Bramhall on Sunday. I didn’t know that Doyle was doing shows – he is a huge talent with a huge black cloud that hangs over his head wherever he goes and whoever he plays with. You might remember him from the short lived Arc Angels. Most excellent album. If I go on sunday, I can catch Michael MacDonald, too. Hmmm.
