New Music Festival: WYXR's Raised By Sound Coming This December

Memphis' community radio station WYXR will host a one day music festival on December 3, 2022! 

I love a new Memphis festival! 

I'm happy to help announce that WYXR will host Raised By Sound on December 3rd at Crosstown Concourse, featuring a FREE daylong lineup of Memphis bands, followed by ticketed shows—Big Star’s #1 Record 50th Anniversary concert with a supergroup of musicians and an after-party featuring Andrew VanWyngarden and Bodywerk. 

Tickets for the fundraising portions of Raised By Sound are on sale today—head over to for details.

Here are more details from the team at WYXR: 

We’re hosting our first Raised By Sound Fest on Dec. 3! It’s a day-long celebration with free music that wraps up with two, separate ticketed fundraising events in the Crosstown Theater and the Green Room.
