The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Shop for Southern Style in Oxford, Mississippi

4. Insider’s Tip

Rock out in Oxford thanks to Cats Purring, a roving music/dance party founded by a local musician.  

Sniff out Cats Purring, a roving late-night concert and party series run by musician Dent May. When he's not out of town touring, he sponsors shows at local bars and sometimes out of a 5,000-square-foot farmhouse, which he lives in with four friends and fellow musicians, known as the Dude Ranch. Check their Facebook page for scheduled events or ask the bartenders around town if they’ve caught wind of a spur-of-the-moment fête.
