A Cool History of Memphis Live Music On The Walls @MinglewoodHall

entertainment, events, music, Night Clubs

It seems like yesterday that Minglewood Hall opened as an exciting new live music venue in Memphis, the venerable old music city where live music has often been hard to find, surprisingly. One of the coolest thing’s about Minglewood’s more intimate space, the 1884 Lounge, is their decision to record the venue’s history by framing and displaying posters from many of the most memorable gigs in the building. Nobody has time or gigabytes to photograph every poster (and some are too high to get good photos of unless you’re on a ladder), but I spied posters from DJ Lil Larry, Yo Gotti, North Mississippi All-Stars, Trombone Shorty, Cedric Burnside, Lightning Malcolm and Jimbo Mathus. The diversity of genres is itself a tribute to the vision of Minglewood’s owners and management, against the backdrop of a city where there is often too much division. Support live music in Memphis, and the people like Minglewood that support it and keep it going.
