friday, 8

A couple of art openings tonight. They are at Rhodes College s Clough-Hanson Gallery for an exhibition of work by Puerto Rican artist Juhasz-Alvarado; and at Art Farm Gallery for Liquid Steel, works by Teresa White, Joseph Young, Stacey Zuria, Rob Zuria, and Jason Shackelford. Also opening tonight is The Soul of a People at Rhodes College s McCoy Theatre, which features African-American storytelling, visual art, dance, and music. Tonight s Black Tie Blue Jeans Gala at Memphis Botanic Garden benefits the American Heart Association. Tonight kicks off this weekend s International Blues Challenge, with artists from all over the country performing in numerous clubs on Beale Street and Sunday-night finals at the New Daisy. Just a block away, Dezeray s Hammer is at the Lounge in the Gibson Guitar Factory. The Maria Spence Band is at the Full Moon Club upstairs from Zinnie s East. As always on Friday nights, The Chris Scott Band is at Poplar Lounge. And last but certainly not least, Louisiana-born zydeco/soul/R&B artist Donna Angelle is at the Hi-Tone; go hear her if for no other reason than she states that her greatest influences early in life were Curtis Mayfield and watching Soul Train on television late at night. Gotta love that.

  • Scotched and Trumped!

    I've been trying not to write much about Donald Trump because the idiot is getting way too much publicity, but I figured not many people pay attention to me, so I'm not adding to the media frenzy that much when I state that I really do think he might be the Antichrist.
