saturday, june 9th

If you think back to years ago, during the 1970s when downtown had about two bars and two restaurants, who would have thought that tonight would be the grand opening of Peabody Place Muvico Theatres, a 22-screen cinema in the heart of downtown. Tonight s opening, a benefit for St. Jude Children s Research Hospital, includes food, live music, and movie screenings. And just down the street in the fabulous AutoZone Park, the Memphis Redbirds take on Las Vegas. Down in Tunica, the good ol Pointer Sisters are playing at the Isle of Capri. And here at home, tonight s Songwriters In Their Own Voice concert at the Bartlett Performing Arts and Conference Center is hosted by Nancy Apple and features Keith Sykes, Teenie Hodges, and Delta Joe Sanders. The Boondogs are at the Blue Monkey tonight; Reni & Bob Simon and Randy Haspel are at the Blue Moon; Dash Rip Rock is at Young Avenue Deli; and for a cold beer and a great time, find Effie s House of Love. You won t be disappointed.
