saturday, August 18

While I really haven't kept up with things this year, tonight is the grand finale of the Images of Elvis impersonator contest at the Holiday Inn Select, so I suppose this is the night the winner will be named at Today's 19th Annual Elvis Presley International 5K Run and Fun Walk -- a fund-raiser for UCP (formerly United Cerebral Palsy) -- at Graceland is expected to draw some 4,000 runners, walkers, and wheelchair participants and ends with a post-run party at Graceland Pavilion with live music by the Bouffants. This afternoon's Homeless Animals' Day at the Overton Park Shell honors shelter animals and the organizations that help them. There's a K-97 Summer Jam at Mud Island Ampitheater tonight. The Dillingers are having their reunion show tonight with Bluegrass Stains at the Map Room. And the Memhis Acoustic Music Association is hosting a concert at Otherlands Coffee Bar tonight by Willie Lee Ellis (better known as Commercial Appeal music writer Bill Ellis) and the winner of ths year's International Blues Talent competition, Richard Johnson.
