A Wet And Busy Juke Joint Fest in Clarksdale

By 9 PM, Pete’s Bar & Grill had become a venue for Juke Joint Festival, with a large crowd in and around, Clarksdale, MS, 4/14/12

Walking south down Sunflower Avenue from Red’s Juke Joint, I came to another juke joint that I had never seen before called Pete’s Bar and Grill. I was hot from walking, and stopped in to sit at the bar and enjoy a cold coke, listening to some great southern soul music on the speakers inside.
