It seems every year at Beale Street Music Festival, attendees wind up drenched, cold, and miserable in pursuit of their favorite bands. But theres so much more to Memphis In May. You know, like that whole "honored country" part.
This year, its Costa Rica, and there are a number of events going on all over the city honoring the native music, food, and culture of that country. One such event is Costa Rica: Rhythm & Rainforest at The Orpheum tonight. It features dance by Ballet Folklorico, a performance by Costa Rican singer/songwriter Luis Angel Castro, piano music played by Manuel Obregon, and Caribbean cuisine by Chef Oscar. And you get it all for only $11.
