Today s African Arts Family Festival at Memphis Brooks Museum of Art celebrates the reinstallation of The Arts of Africa exhibit with scavenger hunts, arts & crafts for kids, and a performance by the dance troop Watoto de Afrika. There s an opening for an exhibition of paintings by Charles Miller this afternoon at none other than the fabulous Lamplighter Lounge (be sure to try a burger). Tonight s black-tie Germantown Arts Alliance Gala at Ridgeway Country Club honors former Stax Records Booker T. & the MG s guitarist Steve Cropper with the 2004 Arts and Humanities Medal and includes a silent auction and dancing to the music of Magi. Leon Redbone is at the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center tonight. Tonight and Tuesday night, Kallen Esperian stars in Opera Memphis production of Tosca at The Orpheum. Kate Campbell is at the Center for Southern Folklore tonight. And back at the Hi-Tone, it s Bloody Midget Wrestling on their Rock Um Sock Um November to Surrender No Silence All Violence Tour. This might actually get me out of the house.

  • 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.
