Dead Soldiers at the Hi-Tone 

After much anticipation and a few minor setbacks, the "big room" at the new Hi-Tone location on Cleveland finally opens this Saturday, August 3rd, when like-minded locals Dead Soldiers and Bottom of the Bottle will perform.

Dead Soldiers (pictured) has been touring regularly in recent months in support of the band's fine debut album, All the Things You Lose, which was self-released earlier this year. According to singer/guitarist Michael Jasud, the opportunity to be the first on the Hi-Tone's new stage is a tremendous honor for the outlaw-country outfit.

"We are extremely excited to be inaugurating the big room at the new Hi-Tone, after presiding over the legendary, yet little-known last performance on the original Hi-Tone stage," he says. "This night will certainly mark the beginning of a new chapter in Memphis live music venues and the life of the venerable Hi-Tone name. I really hope people come out to support this long-running Memphis institution's new life."

Relative newcomers Bottom of the Bottle will serve as the evening's opening act. Fronted by songwriter/bassist Jamison Powell, the group is musically similar to Dead Soldiers but with a raunchier, party-band edge. Dead Soldiers and Bottom of the Bottle play the Hi-Tone (412 N. Cleveland) on Saturday, August 3rd, at 9 p.m. Admission is $10.
