Dirty Streets

This year, after four years and 60 million dollars of renovation, the 2023 Beale Street Festival reopened in Tom Lee Park along the riverside in downtown Memphis Tennessee. At the height of Beale Street's popularity in 2017, the event saw 37,000 fans crowd the park. Attendance numbers this year were smaller and saner, with crowds of around 10,000 daily. This was in part a deliberate effort to keep the newly planted park-plants from being trampled into oblivion.

The Memphis-based rock band DIRTY STREETS release their new album, Who’s Gonna Love You - today. The trio spent the last two years of their pandemic-induced forced time off the road creating new music and finding a new home with the Los Angeles-based independent label, Blue Élan Records.
