Got your rock-n-roll boots on? Tonight (Oct. 17), the Jackson-based indie label Esperanza Plantation will be celebrating its 10th year of existence with performances by The Weeks, Tommy Bryan Ledford, and El Obo. Esperanza began in 2002 out of an emerging artist collective, when newly-minted lawyer and exemplary Jacksonian Chaney Nichols came along and put flesh and bones (ahem, money!) behind our vision to have a support system for the music we wanted to share with the world and nurture in others. Since our first split 7″, our family has steadily grown, with Esperanza’s catalog now standing at over 20 releases. And we’re damn proud of every one of ’em.
