Murray, KY

Murray is a small small town in southern Kentucky. It was our second time coming back, and it was a blast to see people we met again. The town itself is a small college town-with an odd downtown that I accidentally discovered on a jog. The downtown closes and empties out by 3PM, so it felt like I was running through a ghost town of sorts. The real places to be in Murray are not downtown area (in my humble opinion) but instead the independently owned hole-in-the-wall businesses you find scattered throughout town. My favorite of these is hands down Terrapin Station. Terrapin Station is primarily a record store but it also sells tons of used books, incense, and tie dyed clothing. The walls are covered in band posters, but also newspaper clippings of everything Bernie Sanders. Tim, one of the main minds behind the shop, is what makes this place special. Tim is an incredibly kind, warm, accepting individual who saw a void in the Murray music scene, and opened up the shop for shows. Everyone is welcome, and shows there seem to be a safe haven for all the music lovers, the weirdos, the free thinkers in town. At the end of each show, Tim thanks everyone for showing up, and encourages people in the community to start bands. We had such a great time playing here. My only deep regret is that we didn't eat at the delicious and inexpensive diner with Tim this time around. After the show, which got out crazy late, we booked it to Memphis. I'm now sitting in the most incredible library I have been to in awhile. Also it is spring here. Cheers to Memphis public library for the free internet and the wide open quiet space. Tonight we play at P&H Cafe and then tomorrow we head to Hot Springs!
