PO MONKEY’S JUKE JOINT FOR ‘AL JAZEERA AMERICA’ TV TUESDAY NIGHT!! This TUESDAY, JULY 2ND… rare LIVE blues show at Po Monkey’s Lounge near Merigold, starring “We Juke Up In Here” blues movie star Anthony “BIG A” Sherrod & the Allstars and filmed by Al Jazeera America (new TV network). 8pm showtime. Likely won’t go too late (unless y’all toss in some tips!), so get there early! FREE SHOW… thanks to friends of the Delta Center at DSU.
DIRECTIONS TO PO MONKEY’S FROM CLARKSDALE, MS: From Clarksdale, take Hwy 61 South 30 miles to Pemble Road and turn RIGHT. Note that the green Pemble Road street sign is missing, so look for Dollar General on left side of highway and a brown “Blues Trail” sign on right as well as as a “Pemble Farms” sign in field at turn-off. [If you miss the turn off and get to LEFThand “Merigold” exit, you’ve gone too far. In that case, turn around and take what will then be your SECOND left. Then…]. After making turn onto Pemble Road, take immediate left fork in the road which is gravel. [That’s Po Monkey Road, but that sign is also missing!] The juke is approx. 1 1/2 miles down on left. 662-748-2254 or 662-514-7488.
