There s a closing reception tonight at Jay Etkin Gallery for the Color Pencil Society of America s 12th Annual International Exhibition. Today kicks off Elvis Week, with tribute concerts, tours, the candlelight vigil, and many other events the details of which are probably listed elsewhere in this paper. The Fieldstones are at the Blue Worm tonight. Garrison Starr and David Brookings are at the Hi-Tone. And last but certainly not least, today from noon-2 p.m., former Booker T. & the MG s guitarist (as well as current guitarist, composer, writer, and arranger) Steve Cropper will be at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music for Conversations With Steve Cropper, and informal talk with the Stax legend during which he will talk about his tenure at Stax Records, the relationship between Stax and The Beatles (in conjunction with the current photography exhibit The Beatles! Backstage and Behind the Scenes) and whatever else you might want to ask him about.
