Following Wednesday's "Public Night," the International Folk Alliance conference at the Downtown Marriott is open only to conference registrants. But there are plenty of related events spilling out to the general public, and Otherlands Coffee Bar in Midtown might be an unofficial headquarters of public Folk Alliance-related events, with conference-connected shows across the long weekend. On Thursday, February 23rd, local singer-songwriter Dan Montgomery (pictured) will play host to a bevy of out-of-town friends, including California's Julie Christensen (a longtime Leonard Cohen backup singer), England's Michael Weston King (of the alt-country band the Good Sons), and Nashville's Amelia White. Friday, February 24th, locals Grace Askew and Chris Milam will perform, and there will be a screening of the music documentary Blaze Foley: Duct Tape Messiah. And on Saturday, February 25th, longtime Memphis roots/alt-country stalwart Jimmy Davis will host a group of Folk Alliance performers. Showtimes are 8 p.m.
