Two more art openings today. One is an opening reception, artist lecture, and symposium at Memphis College of Art for On Paper: Collaborations In Print and Pulp ; the other is at Otherlands Coffee Bar for works by Becky Chappell. Today s big Taste of Midtown Festival in Overton Square features food from 20 area restaurants, chef demonstrations, live bands, strolling performances, and local artists and craftsmen. Down on Butler Street just across from the Tennessee Brewery, today and tomorrow s Butler Street Bazaar features a farmer s market, live music, and arts and crafts vendors. If you have some musically inclined children, you might want to take them to today s Stax Music Academy Auditions at the Academy, starting at 10 a.m. Legendary Austin, Texas bluesman W.C. Clark is at B.B. King s tonight. Folk singer Bob Cheevers is at Kudzu s. And of course tonight s biggest bash, the biggest party of the year in Memphis, is the Blues Ball, a fund-raiser for many charities. This year, the black-tie dinner ball is in the unfinished Cook Convention Center expansion, all decked out like a blues juke joint, and salutes the 50th Anniversary of Sun Studio and the 25th Anniversary of Elvis Presley s death. LOTS of performances by Memphis musicians.
