String it On


It’s hard to believe Bragg Jam is just a few months away. And what’s even crazier is the event marks Mom and Shuga D’s one year milestone as a couple. Time flies when you are having this much fun.

While the folks in Candy’s Land are up to their elbows in volunteer Bragg Jam planning, it’s not all work, no music. In fact, Bragg Jam is getting the music started early by sponsoring the South Memphis String Band show at the Hummingbird Stage and Taproom tomorrow night, Tuesday, April 28, at 10 p.m. The show serves as the after-party to the Jimmy Herring “Stay and Play” Show at the Cox Capitol Theatre, which benefits the Big House Foundation.

At the South Memphis show, the official Bragg Jam line-up will be announced. Good stuff is coming July . . . among Mom’s top picks are the Loose Change reunion show, T-Bird and the Breaks and Cracker. In addition to these, 37 other acts will be announced.

So, I know it’s a school night, but I can guarantee there is no other town in the Southeast that is providing this playing field of music on this particular night. The South Memphis show is $7 with a Herring ticket stub. You don’t get this many good reasons to lose sleep over.
