Beale Street Music Festival 2013

Beale Street Music Festival
Memphis, Tennessee
May 3 & 4, 2013

Each year, Beale Street Music Festival seems to be plagued by weather issues. Without fail, it rains. However, 2012 was a perfect storm of…well…no rain storms. So, it was basically a given that 2013’s edition would have bad weather.

No one could have foreseen, however, that not only would there be the annual rain, but that temperatures would drop – no, plummet – into the 30s. The only thing missing was actual snow.

Nevertheless, music fans were once again treated to a solid line-up of music ranging from fest regulars like Gov’t Mule and Jerry Lee Lewis to the Black Keys and metal guitar legend Yngwie Malmsteen.
