Don't forget that this weekend is the spectacular Beale St. Music Festival in Memphis (of course) featuring our own Gary Clark Jr.
and The Roots (with Kirk Douglas) along with Sheryl Crow, Alice and Chains, the Flaming Lips, Patti Smith, Papa Roach, and Epiphone's #1 honky tonk man, Dwight Yoakam. Dwight's new album, 3 Pears
, may not be so "new" anymore but if you've only heard about Dwight and haven't taken the time to really listen, now is the time to get on board. Dwight's voice and killer band are in top shape. And, he's rocking every show with his Ltd. Ed. Elitist "Dwight Trash" Casino
and the new songs stand up to anything in his catalog.
Catch the Casino-heavy version of "A Heart Like Mine" from the Jimmy Kimmel Show and head down to Memphis this weekend.
