thursday, 4

Today kicks off one of the biggest arts-and-crafts fairs in the contry,the Pink Palace Crafts Fair at Audubon Park,with hundreds of vendors selling a wide variety of goods. Ron Hall will be signing his popular new book Playng for a Piece of the Door: A History of Garage & Frat Bands in Memphis, this afternoon at Burke's Book Store, Tennessee Williams' drama about a 1930s prison riot, Not About Nightingales, opens tonight at Rhodes College's McCoy Theatre. And there's lots of live music around town: Reba Russell at Black Diamond, the Alvin Youngblood Hart Band at te Lounge in the Gibson Guitary Factory, The Soul Revue on The Peabody's Plantation Rooftop, the River City Jazz Society at River Terrace on Mud Island, live jazz at Cafe Zanzibar, Teresa Pate at Melange in the M Bar, the Chris Scott Band at Poplar Lounge, and, while I've never heard them or even heard of them I feel compelled to mention that at Neil's there's a show by Instant Corndog.
