Ed. Note: We’re bringing back the popular Listen Up! column, a monthly sampling of live music shows in Memphis. Contributor Baylee Less has put together this sweet list for March 2017. Wesley Paraham also contributed to this post. You can submit a show for inclusion in April’s Listen Up by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 22. Please use Listen Up April in the subject line. Then go submit your show to the calendar, too.
This March, Memphis has all kinds of live music events: intimate shows, jazz shows, loud shows, old-school shows, and even an Australian punk rock show. Consider this list my attempt to offer you a taste of everything.
8. Stoop Kids, Lafayette’s Music Room, Thursday, March 22nd, show at 9 p.m., free, 21 and up
Surely the most eclectic show on the list, the Stoop Kids sound equal parts like Sublime and 1950’s diner music. Weird, right? Weird, but also very fun to dance to. Grab a bite at Lafayette’s (I like the Salmon Salad) and stay for the Stoop Kids first performance in Memphis.
