Thursdays Squared Extends Series 

The popular Thursdays Squared series doubled down on its good thing last week and announced the second half of the season, which has expanded emphasis on Memphis' homegrown creativity. The first half of the season capitalized on the newly refurbed square and its ascendant cool factor. The advent of spring made this the thing to do on its namesake night. As it warms up, sponsor Resource Entertainment Group is revving up the local aspect of the series with bonafide Memphis music.

On May 22nd, things kick off with pajama enthusiast Muck Sticky joining the timeless wedding machine that is Dr. Zarr. May 29th, it's the ladies: the Bouffants, Memphis' most hairsprayed musical outfit, and the Memphis Dawls, who manage to be everywhere at once and keep people happy at the same time.

Memphis in June: Hoagy Carmichael knew all about it. (Look him up if you don't.) We get right to the vanguard of Memphis' music scene on June 5th with American Fiction. Go see them before they take over the world. Almost Famous opens. And on June 12th: Holy moly, it's John Paul Keith and Star & Micey.

June 19th is an '80s party, which is perfect for people who like '80s parties. There will be a tribute to Michael Jackson.

Feeling all hick-hop? Rumble your diesel down to the Square, son, for Trademark on June 26th. They are the self-styled Motley Crüe of country music. Guess who else will be there: 8-Ball Aitken. Does that make him the Ratt of country music? Go see.

Enter July. On the third of July, this city will be jammed to its core by Kaleidophonix. Those who survive the jam will have their pimp goblets replenished by the Lord. Lord T & Eloise, jack!

Speaking of Overton Square, Thursdays Squared
