Sound Advice: Wednesday Madness w/ the City Champs and More!



The City Champs
  • the City Champs

Live music fans in Memphis are in for a rather hectic, choice-filled treat tomorrow night (Wednesday, June 5), as there are no less than four high-quality shows taking place at various venues around Midtown - most of which are scheduled to take place concurrently.

The early-bird offering of the evening is an appearance by local soul-jazz trio the City Champs at the Levitt Shell. This show was originally scheduled for this past Saturday, but had to be re-scheduled due to the rain. The show starts at 7:30 and admission is free.

Here's the group performing the title track to its excellent 2010 LP The Safecracker live at Minglewood Hall:

Afterwards, you've got your choice of three solid late-night options: Bad Veins at the Poplar Lounge, Gogol Bordello and Bombino at Minglewood Hall, and Women's Wednesday (featuring Anne Schorr, Lahna Deering, and Elizabeth Wise) at the Buccaneer Lounge. So here's hoping you don't have to be at work too early on Thursday!
