CY NIGHT OUT: Misty White takes the gazebo stage October 6

By Tamara Cook

The first Thursday of every month is a fun-filled evening in your favorite Midtown hot spot – Cooper-Young! Gather with your friends at the corner of Cooper Street and Young Avenue to enjoy live music by local Memphis solos and groups. Stroll around the neighborhood to enjoy discounts on everything from vintage clothing and sushi to Moon pizza and tattoos.

October Night Out is Thursday, October 6, from 5-9pm. At the gazebo this month, we have Misty White, longtime CY resident and guitarist singer-songwriter, playing from 6-9pm. Misty is well known for her country rock ‘n’ roll mix of ballads. She hit the Memphis music scene in the early 80s and has been a part of such groups as the Hellcats, Alluring Strange, and The Chiselers.
