Trailer gazing: '$5 Cover'

Here's the trailer for "$5 Cover," the web-series from Craig Brewer I told you about way back when. It'll consist of a series of shorts centered on Memphis musicians playing slightly fictionalized versions of themselves. For instance, Little Rock native and longtime Memphian Ben Nichols plays "Ben." Here's his character's description:

Lucero’s a band that has written plenty of songs about girls and guitars. Twangy riffs complement Ben’s signature whiskey-soaked vocals. He is the sexy, bad-boy front man and the object of Clare’s true love.

In real life, Clare's a local actress. Here she's "the garage-band poster girl. The drinking, dancing muse of all the rockers in Memphis." She a rolleyderby girl, too.

An early episode features a love triangle between Clare and kickass Memphis bassist Amy LaVere and someone who works at Hi-Tone and plays in Amy's band (in the show; he's a filmmaker in real life; oh the lines they blur).

The series debuts in mid-March.

Most of the best names in Memphis music feature: Al Kapone, Cody Dickinson, the River City Tanlines, Jack Oblivian, Harlan T. Bobo.

This could be really silly — the trailer kind of looks like "Undressed" in Memphis — but I'm hopeful. Can't be anything but good for Memphis music.

Oh yeah, if you look closely, you can catch Last Chance Records Travis Hill fist-pumping in some of the Lucero footage.
