North Mississippi Allstars at Minglewood Hall 

You can celebrate Thanksgiving with a couple of Memphis music staples this week as the brothers Dickinson, Luther and Cody, bring the North Mississippi Allstars back home for a holiday show. Longtime bassist Chris Chew, who had some medical issues earlier this year, is on the mend but will not complete the trio this week, according to a statement Luther Dickinson released via the band's manager: "We are happy to say that Chris Chew is doing very well and is back at work driving tour buses, but we regret to say he informed us his work schedule conflicts with the North Mississippi Allstars' Minglewood show on Friday, and he won't be performing. We feel so fortunate to have Lightnin' Malcolm continue playing bass, guitar, and drums with us." In addition to Malcolm, the show includes the elder Dickinson's South Memphis String Band-mate, roots-music genius Alvin Youngblood Hart. Adding to the holiday spirit, representatives from the Mid-South Food Bank will be on hand collecting canned goods and nonperishable food items. The first hundred people to bring a canned food or nonperishable item to the show will receive a limited-edition poster commemorating the show, autographed by the band. The North Mississippi Allstars play Minglewood Hall on Friday, November 23rd, with Lightnin' Malcolm and Alvin Youngblood Hart. Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are $20.
