FRIDAY 12/6-SUNDAY 12/8. White Water Tavern, LOST FORTY BREWING. Free-$150.
What started as a celebration of Last Chance Records founder Travis Hill’s birthday has long morphed into a multi-day marathon of concerts from some of the American South’s finest rockers, held at the venerable White Water Tavern every December. These days, though, it resembles something more akin to a family reunion, drawing not only a dynamite roster of talent from Texas, Oklahoma, Memphis and elsewhere, but a tight-knit group of devotees to fuel the crowd singalongs. This year, the lineup is stacked as ever, with sets from The Legendary Shack Shakers, Patrick Sweany, Slobberbone, Samantha Crain, Jon Dee Graham, Lee Bains & The Glory Fires, Adam Faucett, John Paul Keith, Bonnie Whitmore (pictured), Clownvis Presley, Jeremy Pinnell, The Baptist Generals, Shane Sweeney, Isaac Hoskins, John Calvin Abney, Cory Branan, Matt Woods, Todd May, Kaylyn Fay and Brent Best. And, if you don’t manage to score a ticket, as the event routinely sells out, catch free performances from HHO artists at Lost Forty Brewing Friday, Dec. 6 between 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., and check out HHO’s Sunday brunch/book sale, “Breakfast, Books & Booze,” which admits non-ticketholders to come in and browse spectacularly curated selections from Mary Chamberlin’s literature distribution project, Tree of Knowledge.
