April brings showers of shows to Dollar Box

-

While the rest of the city embraces the beautiful weather of the season, downtown venues are planning busy calendars of entertainment events to celebrate as well.

Ben Shemper, owner of the Dollar Box Showroom and Benny’s Boom Boom Room, knows shows. Multiple crowd favorites will return to the Dollar Box in the next few weeks.

To follow up last month’s Flow Tribe show, The Dollar Box Showroom is bringing back The Weeks, a Mississippi original. The Weeks are bringing their newest album tour, “Easy,” to Hattiesburg’s Weeks fans. Tickets for the event can be bought online or at the venue. The Lonely Biscuits, an alt-rock band native to Nashville, will open for The Weeks at 9 p.m. to start off the show, welcoming The Weeks to the stage around 10 p.m.

The Weeks are a Jackson-born group composed of four members and can be described as an indie-Southern rock band with influences of country and grunge rock, an overall unique sound true to Mississippi’s musical roots. The Weeks are currently on their first tour of their recent release “Easy,” which has brought them to cities all over the U.S., beginning in Cleveland, Miss. and wrapping up in Nashville. On tour with The Weeks, the Lonely Biscuits are a complementary alternative sound to the The Weeks grungy southern rock.

The show is expected to have a huge turnout, and tickets for the event are going quickly. They can be purchased on ticketmaster.com or by contacting the Dollar Box Showroom for information.

To conclude the school year for Southern Miss, Afroman will be making a return to the Dollar Box. This will bring the year to a truly unforgettable close as Hattiesburg experiences a lineup like Flow Tribe, The Weeks and Afroman.

Afroman is a Hattiesburg native- rapper himself, and always brings a huge crowd out for shows in his hometown. Much of his music was inspired here in Hattiesburg, giving him a great connection to the music community and altogether making for one of the city’s favorite music events of the year.

The Dollar Box will be hosting Afroman on May 12, the same night of the Southern Miss graduation ceremony. The show will begin at 10:30 p.m. and openers are still to be announced; tickets for this event can also be purchased online or at the venue.

Get downtown and end this semester or celebrate the beginning of beautiful summer weather at The Dollar Box Showroom’s end of the year music lineup.
