friday, 16

Yes, there are some art openings tonight and some live bands and all that, but here s where you need to be. And first of all, let me just say, Aretha, Gladys, Mahalia, Etta, while I love you all, you need to step back and make way for the real queen of gospel and soul, Ms. Mavis Staples. Yes, Mavis is in town tonight to perform with more than 200 Stax Music Academy students at The Orpheum for the SNAP!2004 Grand Finale Concert, the culmination of the academy s summer camp. It is going to be quite a show, and Mavis has flown in just to be with the kids. And that is simply all I have to say about tonight. Except that Ms. Staples is also scheduled to the guest DJ on WRBO Soul Classics 103.5 this morning with the Soul Patrol crew.
