Fly On The Wall 

Sam Phillips and strip clubs

Jolly Royals

We're not sure what Fox13 News reporter Lauren Lee was doing at The Pony, but this photo she shared of "America's Strip Joint" is certainly in the running for tweet of the year. Until somebody produces video evidence of the alleged royal twerking, it may very well be Memphis' best souvenir of Prince Harry's recent whirlwind visit.

Wiggly Not Piggly

If you liked Broadway shows like Memphis: The Musical and Million Dollar Quartet: The Musical, then you won't want to miss Sons of Sun: Elvis, Jerry Lee, Johnny and Me, a new, excessively named rock musical produced in part by Murray Cook of the freaky Australian kid-pop combo The Wiggles. Sons of Sun tells the story of Sun Records founder Sam Phillips, who Cook described as being "relatively unknown." Sons of Sun star Matt Charleston confirmed Cook's assessment in an interview saying, "I must admit, when [playwright] Kieran [Carroll] first mentioned Sam Phillips' name to me, I didn't know who he was talking about."

Help Wanted

Regardless of what you may think about what goes on at The Pony, you must admit that they give good sign.
