Make sure to check out the Reverend Jeff Mosier and Blueground Undergrass at Hal & Mal's Thursday, September 22, 10 p.m. $8. Think of Blueground Undergrass as a rootsy jam of banjo fiddle bluegrass juke. Frontman Jeff Mosier, one of the founders of Colonel Bruce Hampton's original Aquarium Rescue Unit is juxtaposed nicely against Widespread Panic's sit in fiddle player David Blackmon.
Now is the time to buy your discounted season tickets to all the coming theatre, Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, Mississippi Opera, Kessler Broadway, Mississippi Academy of Ancient Music and other area arts institutions. Check out the whole season in the online lounge list if you missed our fall arts preview last week. If you haven't emailed me your post hurricane event changes for the lounge list and calendars yet, hit me up at [e-mail missing] Many of the big dates that were scheduled earlier this month have been postponed for the next two weeks.
Make sure to check out the Farish Street Heritage Festival on Saturday, October 1, with Parliament (aka. The Original P), Nappy Roots, Eddie Cotton, Kamikaze and others. Many of the New Orleans events like the killer Voodoo Music Festival are looking for new cities to host their events. Cheers to Jackson or whoever nearby willing to step up, and keep on keeping on.
The onset of fall welcomes cooler temperatures and the annual state fair, October 5-16 this year. The music announced so far includes the Charlie Daniels Band on the 5th, Randy Travis on the 7th, Paul Revere and the Raiders on the 10th, the legendary Morris Day & the Time on October 12, Seether on the 13th and Julie Roberts and Jeff Bates on the 14th. For five bucks with fair admission gives you Morris Day and The Time, the old school funk band that took on Prince in Purple Rain! Plan now to work it and learn it from the masters of cool.
