Besides the music that was occurring on the official Memphis Music and Heritage Festival stages, there was also a good-sounding band playing on the patio in front of Local Gastropub downtown. I asked the band there what their name was, and was told that it was basically the East Memphis Trio, but with some guests sitting in.
This brightly-colored mural is simply the latest sign that Overton Square is back as a destination in Midtown Memphis. The new Bar Louie location opened last week, directly across from the new location of Local Gastropub. Down the block is Chiwawa, a new and unique Mexican restaurant concept in the old Chicago Pizza Factory location on Madison. A great time to check out the new offerings at Overton Square is during the On Location Memphis International Film and Music Festival, which largely takes place at the Studio on the Square theatre, April 25-28, 2013.
