It's Elvis Week. Are you ready?

On Saturday, August 8th, from 8 p.m. to midnight, the Elvis Presley Car Museum will be bumping, as a DJ cranks out the King and transforms the place into Club Elvis. Sunday will bookend the affair appropriately with a gospel breakfast, also at the car museum. Elvis' gospel will spill out and videos will air on the drive-in theater screen.

Monday, August 10th, will feature another Club Elvis, and Tuesday will offer Elvis Film Fest 6 at Malco's Studio on the Square (see Film Clips, page 52). Also on Tuesday: the Peabody Duck March with 2009 Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist contestants at 5 p.m. at the downtown hotel; and Shawn Klush in concert at the Cannon Center at 7 p.m. Klush won the 2007 tribute artist contest.

The tribute gladiators will get to battling proper starting on Wednesday, August 12th. There will be a contestant meet-and-greet at 11 a.m. at the Hard Rock Café on Beale and then contest semifinals at 7 p.m. at the Cannon Center. Attendees from around the world will duke it out for the coveted prize.

Elvis Week, of course, continues into the next weekend. Pace yourself out there, okay? Drink plenty of fluids and wear comfortable shoes.
