Ghost of Blind Lemon | Friday the 13th Showcase

The Free man, 2626 Commerce St, Dallas

THE SHOW PEOPLE ARE DYING TO SEE... Ghost of Blind Lemon | Friday the 13th Showcase

Sixty-two years ago, a young boy drowned at Camp Crystal Lake. The camp counselors failed to save him because they were, uh, busy doing other things. That young boy later grew into a man who would go on to terrorize others at Camp Crystal Lake, and eventually, around the world.

That, of course, has nothing to do with Ghost of Blind Lemon first ever Friday the 13th Showcase, happening September 13th at The Free Man in Deep Ellum. Join The Ghost for an evening filled with local music so amazing that it’s scary good!

The Friday night begins with Charlie J Memphis, the young man for such great songs as “Shake My Bones” and “Bloody Is the Water.” Although Mr. Memphis is a young lad not even 21 years of age, his skill at weiling his axe (as in guitar) will terrify you!

As night descends upon Deep Ellum, the plot thickens as Hightower Band takes the stage, performing songs from the new EP Night as well as their debut album, Echo Spring with haunting lyrics driven songs that will tear your heart out too. The band’s blend of pop, rock, country, and blues will keep listeners glued to the edge of their seats!

Finally, the evening comes to its thrilling climax with Chilldren Of Indigo. The band will perform tunes from Keepers of the Fire, but their music is not the stuff of campfire stories. Watch Chilldren of Indigo thrill the crowd with funk, soul, hip-hop, and rock. Warning: their set is not for the faint of heart!

On a bill so big it should be called William, local tour-de-forces Cure for Paranoia, Chilldren of Indigo, and Electrik Ants will be putting on display why this isn’t your parents’ Dallas scene. Redefining metroplex music, all three bands are ferociously unique and dynamically independent while finding common ground in the worlds of aggressive hip-hop and fluid grooves. To say energy will be coursing through The Free Man Friday, June 7, would be an understatement of the drastic variety. Miss this show at your own peril.

Atop the blossoming DFW music scene sits Cure for Paranoia, whose eclectic blend of hip-hop, funk and soul have given them the opportunity to perform with the likes of Nas, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, Flying Lotus and many more. Insightful, insatiable, and ever-expanding, they provide the Cure for whatever ails you.

Aggressive, intelligent, sensory, and ever-passionate, Chilldren of Indigo inject the Dallas music scene with a liveliness any city would be envious to claim. An avant-garde combination of funk, soul, and headbanging hip-hop, Chilldren has carved out a space somewhere between Black Sabbath and Kendrick Lamar. COI provides a transcendent experience not to be missed.

Peer into music’s future with the ever-evolving Electrik Ants. An intoxicating mix of funk, hip-hop, rock, and psychedelia (somewhere between Rage Against the Machine and Gorillaz), the Ants have made their home across the spectrum of musical genres. See them locally before they take over globally.
