Preliminary events for the 2018 International Blues Challenge will kick off on Tuesday, January 16, with the competitions beginning on Wednesday, January 17. To help raise funds for travel expenses, Catfish Lou’s will hold its monthly “Pay It Forward” event as a fundraiser for the CBA’s representative to the IBC on Friday, January 12 at 7:30. Both the CBA’s representative in the band category, Sister Mercy, and in the solo/duet category, Amici, will perform.
While there’s no cover for this event, a tip bucket will be making the rounds for you to fill with generous donations. There will also be food and drinks specials, along with a raffle, with a hundred percent of the proceeds from the raffle, and ten percent of the bar sales being donated to the musical acts as well.
Catfish Lou’s is located at 2460 NW 24th Avenue, so come out and support our local musicians as they prepare for their trip to Memphis.
