I’ve simply arrived in Memphis for Beale Avenue Music Competition. I’ve by no means been right here earlier than and this lineup has loads happening: Indie rock faves Spoon, Modest Mouse, Soccer Mommy, and Kurt Vile, certain… additionally Moneybagg Yo, Lindsey Buckingham, Chevelle, and Patty Griffin… a bunch of ’90s different acts I’ve a smooth spot for (Smashing Pumpkins, Toad The Moist Sprocket, Counting Crows, Stone Temple Pilots, Soul Asylum)… even a few artists who you most likely thought had been cancelled (Van Morrison, DaBaby). Talking of Smashing Pumpkins, do you know we’re freely giving a Reverend Billy Corgan Z-One electrical guitar to one in all our publication subscribers? Good luck when you’re getting into!
