Blues, booze, and BBQs. If that’s not reason enough to head to Memphis, add Gonerfest, an underground music festival hosted by Goner records’ founder Eric Friedl. 2012 marked the ninth festival in almost as many years, and with bands like The Spits, The Oblivians, and Nobunny headlining, there wasn’t a moment to be missed. So, Al Partanen, Justin Modica, Preston Harper and I were Memphis-bound to check out the music and local terrain. Thanks to Goner for still putting out good music and a great festival. I hope to see you at number 10. —Joe Hammeke
