Cruncha-Mame is edamame packaged for snacking. You don’t have to deal with the shells; just the peas are in the bag. The snack has more protein than an egg, and as much fiber as an apple. It’s available in multiple flavors. Beats getting a bag of Cheetos out of the vending machine! There’s always something different to eat at City Market.

John Paul Keith will play a rare solo show tonight at the Blind Bear from 10 until midnight.

Singer/songwriter India.Arie will perform at the Orpheum on Sunday, September 27 as part of her Soulbird Presents a SongVersation with India.Arie tour. Tickets go on sale at the Orpheum box office and Ticketmaster tomorrow.

Bluff City Oktoberfest is seeking artisan vendors for the new October 4-5 festival.

WEVL’s annual Blues on the Bluff festival will be this Saturday on the grounds of the Metal Museum. Enjoy music with a great view of the Mississippi, food by Central BBQ, and beer by Schlafly. More info here.

Time to get out in this hot sun and grab lunch. I’ll be out tonight after 5:30.
