Well, got my tickets; Where had a goner girl oughta go?
Any areas of Memphis I shouldn't stray into for fear of life-loss? Any kitschy (that a word?) hotels in the vicinity of the HiTone? It's early, but a girl's gotta make plans...

Get yourself a copy of Kreature Comforts from Shangrila Records http://www.shangri.com/Proj.html
It's invaluable. Some one in Memphis can correct me on this, but I don't recall any kind of accomodations near the Hi Tone. I can vouch for the Red Roof on Pauline, south of Union. Cheap, clean etc. A bunch of Goners shacked up there last year Labor Day weekend. It wasn't that far a drive - I didn't even finish my beer.

axually already got my copy coming in the mail - sounds like a winner. so, it really will have pointers on stearing clear of the more lethal crack/hooker corners that eric is apparently fond of frequenting? that is one helluva publication.

Try the French Quarter Suites Inn. It is a few blocks from the hi tone, and a hell of a lot nicer than the Red Roof Inn. Don't get me wrong I have stayed at both the Red Roof and at the Days Inn downtown, and they are fine and all, but this time for twenty dollars more I am staying in a suite. I think they even have a bar in the place.

i've always felt that crack and prostitutes are a good time waiting to happen, unfortunately my husband done got brung up on the right side of the tracks and would be afeared to come in contact with that element.
...though I don't know what he thinks Memphis *is* besides "that element"...

Any of you want to kick his ass at the show for being a dullard, feel free. I'll make him a name tag for easy identification.

I see that GOATWHORE are playing the Hi-Tone on November 1st. Must the Fat City/Zeppelin's scene follow wherever I go? I hope MINUS INFINITY is opening!

that's supposedly over by 10:30, and then we can have another show afterwards.

still in the planning stages, though.

That show has been canceled to make way for a more goner friendly show! So far Death Ray are the only confirmed band but more to come.
