Photo Gallery | Iconic venue leaves more than decade worth of memories
An applauded Memphis venue that holds more stories than can be told is getting ready to open its doors for the last time.
For roughly 15 years, the Hi-Tone Café has welcomed musical acts from well-known groups like Band of Horses to psychedelic rock pioneers like Roky Erickson.
But fret not, Memphis music enthusiasts.
Owner Jonathan Kiersky still plans to book local and national touring bands around the Memphis area under Ping Pong Booking & PR.
"We will still be throwing shows around town at different venues, both big and small, in Midtown and downtown," Kiersky said on the Hi-Tone Facebook page back in December.
For now, music-lovers plan on celebrating the Hi-Tone's last night with a blowout. The Barbaras and the Oblivians reunite with a final concert Saturday. Read more about the event here.
For now, photographers and fans throughout the Mid-South have sent Action News 5 photos of some of their Hi-Tone memories.
