Memphis artists: There is a show coming up called RAW: Natural Born Artists that is an opportunity to show off your work in art, fashion, music, film, hair, makeup, photography, or performance art. The plan is to bring together the best undiscovered artistic talent that Memphis has to offer, through shows every other month. If this sounds like something you would want to be a part of, check their website for details.
Starting May 1, Bon Ton Cafe will be staying open for dinner. The cafe is on Monroe between Second and Third, and is already open for breakfast and lunch.
Bob Dylan will play AutoZone Park July 2. His supporting acts include Wilco, My Morning Jacket, and the Richard Thompson Electric Trio. All tickets will be $65.50 general admission and will go on sale at the park’s box office May 11.
Thursday morning, there will be an event in Court Square to announce the official start of the Downtown Memphis Commission’s partnership with ZipCar, the car sharing service. At 10:30, Paul Morris who runs DMC will hold a press conference. From 11 to 2 the Fuel food truck will be there, and from 11:45 AM to 1 PM there will be live music by Rage Against the Stone Age. ZipCar reps will be there for photo opportunities with the cars and to provide info on how the sharing program works. Starting at 11:45 AM, 150 free lunches will be given away. Free food? Wonder if the Nuh-Uh Girl will show up.
The New Belgium/Yazoo beer dinner at Central BBQ Downtown has sold out, according to @CBQDowntown on Twitter.
The public will get to see designs for the Harahan bridge next week. The railroad bridge will add a pedestrian path to walk from Memphis to West Memphis.
My plan for tonight is the official Grizzlies watch party at the Flying Saucer. May do the Stone Brewery tasting if there are still tickets available when I get there after work. If the Saucer gets super super packed, I’ll hop over to Blind Bear.
