This Comedy Open Mic was so amazing, the host so charming, the crowd so welcoming, that I decided to tell my wife then and there that our first born daughter was to be named “PeehinHaycha”. My wife shortly informed me that I was very intoxicated and that we weren’t married, nor did she even know me. I responded with a loud belch and received an awkward high five from the bartender whom avoided all eye-contact with me. Best. Night. Ever.
Please young ladies do not enter this pageant. The director Muhumed Ziiyad is a scam. He will get your money and you will never recieved gifts. He will think he own you and you will never be put on any personal appearance. He has burn bridges with everybody that knows him. Contact some of the former queens and ask them.

I was blown away alright, blown away by how rude everyone was. My kids and I were pushed and shoved around, and when we waited in line 30 minutes for some dosai, the family at the booth kept letting their Indian friends in front of us. We let it slide twice, but at the third time, I told them that we were next, and they rudely told us to wait our turn. We walked away without our food. This is the last place I'd want to spend the day.
Execellent venue, very chill and relaxed. Nice Vibe. cheap beers, $4 for a red stripe, and $3 for a bud lime. Sound and music very good, the KHweens of Zion and the Chinese Connection were excellent!! Good vocals, banging ass bass, the khweens connect well with the crowd. We wil be coming back to check them out.
Very good original songwriting, good performance, nicely original but very familiar in many ways
Or you can go see FreeWorld and Mannequin Fingers at Newby's
they jam out
Matt Blake's music is NOT country. It is rock. Guitar World Magazine's Jimmy Brown said this about his album, Black Suit and Bones:
“Good, honest power pop songwriting with a Steely Dan-like twist. The songs are well-crafted, tastefully arranged and feature solid vocal performances and polished guitar work. The production is refreshingly restrained, with effects used sparingly, resulting in an intimate listening experience.”

I've seen this band live. Very good! The sound = Black Crowes, White Stripes, CCR, and The Rolling Stones mixed with a little Johnny Cash.
Dad Horse is a German one-man band who does a dark-gospel/roots punk thing with a foot organ, banjo, kazoo & vocals.... NOT to be missed!
Sleepy Eyes Nelson is Scotland's premier bluesman.... He's in all the blues magazines!!
+ Johnny Lowebow & Slate Dump?
This is a roots lovers' dream!!!!!!!
Very Hot Act!!
Velvet Revolution actually plays 60's classic rock, not folk-- see velvetmemphis.com for a list of our songs.. Come on down for a great time, we hope it doesn't rain!
