Cedric Burnside plays Lafayette's Music Room this Sunday.
The third annual Memphis Punk Fest rules my Weekend Roundup this week, with over 40 bands (many of them local) set to play at multiple venues around town. Sprinkled in between the extensive Memphis Punk Fest shows are a lot of acts worth checking out, including Cedric Burnside, Tori Who Dat, and Nights Like These.
