Juicy J and Project Pat Tear It Up at Minglewood Hall

PhotoGrid_2014-10-09_15_21_36

So Colt 45 and K97 got together and made quite a few Memphians very happy by putting on Juicy J and Project Pat at Minglewood Hall. Now I know most people would take one look at me and think I don’t have any business going to this show, but let me tell you something. I remember rolling around in my cousin’s old car bumpin’ “Tear Da Club Up” just as well as everyone else that grew up in this great city. I did my first twerk at 616 Marshall Avenue, and last night I was pleasantly surprised that I can still get that low without breaking a hip. It was just as sweaty and dirty as I wanted it to be. We dusted our shoulders off, we showed out, the bandz made her dance, me dance, and errbody dance!

Considering all of the social unrest going around lately sparked by the Ferguson shooting, and overflowing into our town with the Kroger parking lot fight, it was refreshing to see a group of people from all parts of town, and all walks of life, united by the common goal of watching some of our favorite artists at work. Sure a few drunken skirmishes broke out here and there, but the only shots taken all night were of the liquid variety. Getting up for work was a little harder this morning, and my ears are still ringing worse than after a night at Raiford’s, but it is a small price to pay for another unforgettable Memphis moment.

Concerts for Causes in Memphis

PhotoGrid_2014-09-04_11_40_23

Who doesn’t love getting together with their friends, enjoying a few grown up drinks, and watching some great performances in the process? It is even better when it is for a great cause! There are some excellent opportunities coming up in Memphis this fall to enjoy some of your favorite activities, without feeling guilty, because you are giving back to the community.

Two events will be supporting the Church Health Center. Church Health Center provides affordable medical services to individuals without health insurance. Since so many starving artists fall into this category, it is no wonder that so many are willing to provide the entertainment to help raise much needed funds.

One of these events is Rock for Love 8. This year’s the music festival will be held from September 5-7 with a huge dose of live, local musicians pumping out tunes at multiple venues around the city. Don’t miss what are sure to be outstanding performances from James & the Ultrasounds at Hi Tone, Mighty Souls Brass Band at Overton Square, and Al Kapone at Hattiloo. Check out the full lineup here.

There will be another chance to not only support Church Health Center, but to honor the memory of local legend Russell George at Ernestine & Hazel’s on September 13 from 7-11pm. Donate $10, munch on a soul burger, and listen to the Ernestine & Hazel’s band. E&H has not been quite the same since Russell passed away, but it is still one of the best places in town to grab a snack, have a cold beer, and be in the company of friendly faces.

Another upcoming event for a great cause is The Levitt Shell’s 3rd Annual Stars at the Shell Benefit Concert. This years benefit on October 25 will feature R&B and soul singer, Aaron Neville. The Shell hosts some of the best free concerts around, and this benefit helps them keep it up! General Admission tickets are available here.
