Junkhat, Movers and Shakers, The Spice of Life

When: Fri., May 11 2012

MOVERS & SHAKERS This band lists both Austin and Boston as home ports, and without getting real nitpicky about actual mileage, Memphis is more than just a midway point along the musical route. The band’s excellent 2011 release, National Harvester, is replete with River City signifiers, from the Reigning Sound organ swells and Stax horns to the Lucero guitars. Throw in some Alex Chilton/Paul Westerberg bar balladry and you have a compelling mix that deserves a wider audience than most of what passes for roots music these days. With Junkhat and Spice of Life. (John Schacht)

Price: $6-$9
