Now is the Time. Memphis is the Place.

Railgarten Announces Fall Music Series + Madjack Records Anniversary Celebration

Even more great live music is coming your way this fall!

Railgarten’s fall music series kicked off last week with aristocrunk rap stars Lord T and Eloise, and will continue through November with a lineup of bands who play everything from a blend of reggae/dancehall/dubstep, to a mix of soul, blues, and rock, to retro psychedelic music with foundations of modern pop. The point is, there’s great variety. Also, smack in the middle of the music series, there’s an all-day music festival celebrating the 20th anniversary of Memphis label Madjack Records. Add in Railgarten’s nightly food and drink specials, and you’ve got a music destination that will give you something to look forward to every weekend this season. Check out the full lineup below.

On top of their weekly shows, Railgarten’s fall lineup notably includes an all-day free music festival for the 20th Anniversary of Memphis label Madjack Records. The show will feature live performances on both the inside and outside stages beginning at 2pm highlighting the label’s roster of local and nationally-recognized names.

Madjack was originally founded to put out records for the Pawtuckets. Early on, the label released the first two albums for both Lucero and Corey Branan, and co-owner Ronny Russell says the success of those first few acts helped to bolster the label to grow to what it is today, playing its part in the legacy and continued production of Memphis music.

At Madjack, our goal everyday is to bring attention to the unique level of musical talent Memphis continues to produce. And we are not alone. There are other labels, studios, producers, and engineers toiling away everyday, striving to put more of the Memphis sound out into the world. — Ronny Russell, Co-Owner, Madjack Records

The lineup for the anniversary show will include performances by Rob Jungklas, Jana Misener & Krista Wroten of the Memphis Dawls, and McKenna Bray, as well as some surprise special guests to be announced closer to the date.
