First of all, I made a mistake last week and mentioned the opening of The Lion King
on the wrong day. Pardon me for living. It actually opens tonight at The Orpheum. And the gospel musical When Love Goes Bad
, starring Johnny Gill, opens tonight at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts. It s the last Friday of the month, which means it s time again for the South Main Trolley Art Tour
, with free trolley rides along S. Main and festivities at the district s galleries, shops, and restaurants. Opening receptions during the tour include Durden Gallery
for work by Steve Griffith; Jay Etkin Gallery
for work by Richard Knowles; Butler Street Bazaar

of handcrafted metalwork at 493. S. Main. There s also an opening reception tonight at Midtown Artist Market Gallery for work by Lewis Feibelman. The Memphis Grizzlies take on Minnesota tonight at The Pyramid. Memphis-born sax great Andy Goodrich and The Andy Goodrich Quartet are having a CD-release party tonight at CafÇ Soul, playing tunes from his new CD Too Muckin Fuch.
