The show starts promptly at 8 pm. Come out to enjoy original Memphis music and support local musicians. There are three bands: Aurora, Rock Lotto, and Empty Shell. $5 cover.
On a longer term note for anyone who loves Memphis music (that means you):
Terry Fry of Empty Shell is spearheading the Memphis Music Matters (M-cubed) production movement.
M cubed is a venture to help local musicians promote, play, and be compensated. Most people do not realize that when local bands open up for other bands, they do not get paid. Whether it is a local or national act, opening bands play for nothing. These bands and musicians rent practice rooms, spend money on instruments, and dedicate a lot of time to writing and developing their craft.
The goal of M cubed is to set up shows for local musicians to work together and get paid evenly. The venture will set up shows for Memphis bands with similar styles and it needs your help to put the word out. If there is any thing you could do, if you are in a band, or if you have any questions, please call Terry Fry at 901-496-6635.
