Good morning,

I'll be traveling to Memphis for the 1st time this wknd, leaving tomorrow AM and staying through Monday. Would be interested in hearing about any interesting goings-on, including shows, music destinations, etc. Also planning a day trip down to Oxford.

We'll of course be visiting Goner Records.

Thanks !

Record Store Day is Saturday! The Limes and The Manatees are playin'. There really isn't much going on in Oxford. Just local bands. There's some encore screenings of the winners and favorites of the Oxford Film Festival Friday and Saturday night at the Lyric, if your into that kind of thing.

If it's a day trip, just check out the square. Square books is a cool bookstore. The 14th at 6 they are recording Thacker Mountan radio at off square books. They have a couple of authors and a rockabilly singer.

Scott, what's this all about? Not a fan of Oxford?

Search for Chico Harris, that'll probably answer your question.

Graceland Too, which is in Holly Springs, which is between Memphis and Oxford. Although I went last time I was in town (a year or so ago?), and Paul's gotten way, way weirder than he used to be. He handed me a tiny loaded pistol, swore it was bestowed upon him by the Marshall County Sheriff, and then snatched it away really quickly, after promising that he could knock me up in two seconds flat. (I left.)

Make sure you see The Limes and buy their record! It's amazing.

Why do you ask, just because I'd rather shoot myself in the head than go there?

You can possibly catch an authentic "Memphis Strand" of syphilis at the Buccaneer Lounge. Just strike up a conversation with any random stranger, and you're halfway there!!
