Folk Alliance was a cancer, and the local music scene has done nothing but expand and thrive since their extremely fortunate departure.
Have we forgotten the time when black progressive artist Knowledge Nick attempted to synergize with South Main Trolley Night, and was raided by cops where non-violent and non-resisting positive artists were MACED?
Folk Alliance and their regressive ideas on how music should be performed and produced had an profoundly NEGATIVE effect on the local scene, where the word "jazz" was spoken in hushed tones like it was some sort of dirty secret that traditional american music does not have it's history in any white tradition at all.
The vast majority of artists in this city are rappers.
If rappers are not welcome at your event, you don't represent Memphis.
FAI is a cancer. Apparently Memphis needs some chemo to keep it from coming back.
Well I'm thrilled you're back in Memphis being your creative self. Start the musicevoltion!
I'm in one of those guitar center butt-rock bands, and I still appreciate you actually taking the time to talk to me and write about the show. You didn't have to do that, and yet you did. Best of luck on your new endeavours! Memphis is going to miss having guys like you that actually care about the local scene!
damn fine sign-off...thanks for covering all the great tunes!
I've thoroughly enjoyed your writing and will continue to enjoy your music. Good luck out there.
Good luck, and thanks for your observations and recommendations, Chris.
Good to know. Mystery solved. I'll check out the LP. Great article Chris McCoy.
Some of them actually consciously target people whom others respect, the good people, in order to tear the community down. They get off on being the bad one.
Self centered evil people have no idea, or don't care how much they hurt others. Not just the victims, but all those that cared about the victims.
Mary, you must understand that to ALJ2 helping out someone other than himself is a slap at the invisible hand of justice, wait for it wait for it, he's about to tell us about his ambulance ride.....
BTW - not having health insurance is against the law. Specifically, it violates the law known as "Obamacare".
So was this a robbery, a bad drug deal, an argument with someone he knew, or ?
My co-workers friend moved from the 'burbs to just down the street from where Shaw was shot. She was assaulted by a guy with 3 outstanding arrest warrants who had seen her in the area and decided she was "going to be his ho". After getting out of the hospital, she moved back to the 'burbs.
No crime problem around here?
Touring the world doesn't necessarily mean you are making a ton of money in the music business.
Can tour the world, but can't buy health insurance?
The show is Saturday, Nov 26th at Murphy's, featuring Jack Oblivion and the Sheiks, Fresh Flesh, Chuck Vicious, Black Cat, True Sons of Thunder, plus DJ Chris Shaw. Starts at 9pm, $7 donation.
Geek ed about this show, covering it tonight!
Just FYI the show is on Friday, November 11, 2016 not Wednesday, November 16 as reflected in your article.
The City of Nashville is about as country as a traffic jam.
Obviously Nashville doesn't understand good country & western music or its fans.
Dwight is the best of this genre and he and his fans have proved it time and again. Sorry Nashville but you completely missed the mark on this.
I love Dwight Live! Plain and simple!
