If you love live music and free things, you're going to love item #170 on the 365 Things to Do in Memphis list: see a show at the Levitt Shell.
The Levitt Shell hosts 50 free concerts and numerous other events – paid concerts, film screenings, water gun fights – every year.
The free shows are the best, though. It doesn't really matter who's playing – the bands are all good, even the ones you've never heard of. The point of Shell shows is that you're outside, sitting on a blanket with your friends, eating the picnic that you brought, listening to music outside with hundreds of other Memphians. The shows are very low key and family friendly (and if you want to dance, there's plenty of room near the stage).
If you're going to check this item off of the 365 Things to Do in Memphis list this year, you'd better get on it – there are only eight more shows left this season. If you only pick one, make it the Stax Celebration on the 30th.
