Pure Memphis Music Series Announces Fall Lineup

Ask anyone who attended a concert in the last Pure Memphis Music Series at Old Dominick Distillery, and you'll surely hear what a singular experience it was. The casual vibe and attention to acoustics lends performances a living room-like intimacy, except that this living room has a bar. Seeing Jim Lauderdale there in February was gripping and a little hallucinatory, as when he emerged from behind the curtain in his purple yin/yang jumpsuit. Though he was scant feet away, he so inhabited the songs, and caught the light so perfectly that he glowed like some portal to another dimension.

So it's good to discover the series' new lineup for this fall. With the success of the first season, the series is introducing two season ticket options this fall.  A standard season ticket – $100 – gets you into all six shows (discount of $20 off single ticket), while a VIP season ticket – $125 – gets you into all six shows with reserved seating and one cocktail included per show. Single tickets are $20 for every show.

Perhaps the most laudable new development is the introduction of a nonprofit co-host for each show, who’ll receive $5 from every ticket sold and a percentage of cocktail sales for the night.
