The Stars align for Memphis Tuesdays

Posted by Lynn Sullivan, 2 days, 14 hours ago

Memphis Tuesdays is Drake Devonshire's version of open mic night. Once a week, locals and visitors of Prince Edward County gather in the Pavillion and the stage forms to give way to the best (or simply bravest) of PEC talent. The invitation to perform is extended to visitors to the County and lucky for us, the County draws some fantastic company. Read the recap of one special night as Lyn Sullivan of Rosehall Run remembers it!

From local bands to acts around the globe, The Drake Underground is a mecca for discovering local artists and up + coming acts from around the world. We may be underground but we don’t live under a rock - and we want to share artists on our radar, coming through the basement this fall.

If the band could support any act, dead or alive who would be?
I'm gonna say an alive Radiohead but that answer would be different for each member I think.
