saturday, march 17th

Ah, here we are St. Patrick s Day. They don t have the knee-crawling drunken pub crawl, but the Beale Street Festival is still going on and there are a few other St. Paddy s Day events going on. Tonight s Second Annual Emerald Ball at the Adam s Mark Hotel features entertainment by Inishowen (Irish party band) and the Memphis Inis Acla Step Dancers. And there s a First Annual Irish Arts Family Celebration at the W.C. Handy Performing Arts Park on Beale Street; starts at noon and includes a parade down Beale at 5 p.m. Elsewhere around town, Barenaked Ladies are at the Mid-South Coliseum. Imprint, In the Balance, Bar Code, and Stoned at the Moment are at the New Daisy. The Honda Factor and Getaway Vehicle are at Last Place on Earth. Billy Hatcher, Autumn Grieves, and Brad Bailey are at the Map Room. Reba Russell is at Patrick s. Lucero and Mulehead are at the Hi-Tone (don t forget about Rumblefish, the restaurant next door; those potato crisps with caviar are something else). Mose Vinson & Friends and The Fieldstones are at the Center for Southern Folklore. The Sally Macs are at Newby s. There s a big St. Paddy s Day party at Murphy s with live music by Thingamajig, Ed, The Gabe & Amy Show, John Murray, Joint Chiefs, and Big Betsy. And for a good ol Irish throwdown, the 4 Heads are playing Irish tunes at Kudzu s all night.
