Flyer Podcast: Music Fest, Prince, Red Ball, and More

Posted By on Fri, Apr 29, 2016 at 10:40 AM



It's Beale Street Music Fest weekend, of course, and the Flyer has everything you need to know - schedules, descriptions of every act, and a festival map. On the podcast, music editor Chris Shaw talks about Courtney Barnett and Neil Young.

Also on the podcast, we talk to Flyer staffers about the Red Ball, Prince, the Memphis Gay and Lesbian Community Center, Greensward (of course), the end of the Tennessee General Assembly session, and the escape of a punk band from a group of backwoods skinheads (in the new film Green Room.)

Music this week is "Tied My Worries to a Stone" by the Memphis-based Ghost Town Blues Band. They play the Pearl River Resort Blues tent on Friday, April 29 at 6:15 p.m.
