This weekend the Hi-Tone will host a two-day, all-star celebration in honor of the birthday of the club’s new-ish owner, Brian “Skinny” McCabe.

After serving as general manager for years at the now defunct Highland Strip nightclub Newby’s, McCabe took over the Hi-Tone last December after forming an agreement to purchase it from the previous owner, Jonathan Kiersky. Since then, McCabe has made few changes to the Midtown club, preserving the aesthetics, vibes and entertainment programming that helped turn the Hi-Tone into one of Memphis’ premier music venues.
“It's been a roller coaster, but not anything I'm not used to,” says McCabe. “It's a lot of work but I've got an amazing cast and crew. It blows me away how so many people are eager to help.”

For his birthday shows (dubbed “Skinny’s Super Sexy All-Star Celebrity Weekend: Birthday Edition”) this Friday and Saturday, McCabe booked some of Memphis’ higher profile acts, including Dead Soldiers, Mark Edgar Stuart, The Memphis Dawls, and Lord T and Eloise.

“I wanted to showcase some of the insane talent our city has to offer to people that may not make it out often. I've also been personal friends with most of these folks for years and really dig the music,” he says.
