A Weirdo From Memphis (AWFM, to the brevity cravers) has played on a lot of bills, from the Unapologetic Stuntarious series to opening for 8-Ball. After the release of his new solo EP, “You Goin To Jail Now," The Collective asked him to do a show for their Decibel series at The CMPLX. “I don’t think I realized I hadn’t done a solo show until I got offered this. I was like, ‘Oh, I’ve never done this before!”




What intrigued AWFM was the total creative freedom The Collective allowed.” I don’t have to have a traditional stage. I can jump off ladders or randomly eat shit. I’m going to be taking full advantage of the entire room. I’m really excited to invite people to my world for one night. I think it’s a good thing I haven’t done one of these shows, because I’ve been doing a good job of making a name for myself, so this show will be really packed. I think me from three years ago looking now would just pass out from excitement at seeing how many people are scheduled to come through.”



A Very Red Show will be the live debut of songs from the new record “I’ve never performed the majority of it in person before, at least not in Memphis.”

This will not be your ordinary hip hop performance. AWFM has enlisted members of the Unapologetic crew and others to create somethings special. “It’s definitely my vision coming to life, but there has to be at least 50 different hands that have touched this project, bringing this space to life. It’s gonna feel like walking in to an experience.”

Decibel: A Very Red Show Featuring AWFM, Friday, May 17th at THE CMPLX, 2234 Lamar Ave. $10, Doors at 8:30
