As bands grow in popularity, the venues they perform at grow in size. For better or worse, it’s how the concert industry works – you’re always looking to play a bigger venue until you can’t any longer, which is how cities get skipped on tours and nostalgia acts end up playing state fairs.

New Daisy Theatre

So, the good folk in the Bluff City were certainly ready to cut loose by the time Friday rolled around, stretching the Daisy at the seams. Continue reading Greensky Bluegrass & Billy Strings team up in Memphis
