Experience Rebirth This Weekend in Memphis


Some folks claim they've been re-born after finding religion. But you don't need a higher power to revive your spirit this weekend. Just check out one of these activities for a resurgence of self.

The Boyz II Men concert at Harlow's Casino in Greenville, Mississippi, will surely revive youthful energy as you're whisked back to the 1990s, when the economy was in good shape, Bill Clinton was in charge, and parachute pants were really cool. The show starts at 8 p.m. tonight.

Soul gets born again at the Rebirth of Soul Concert tomorrow night at The New Daisy. The event features Will Graves, Karen Brown, Shawna P, and Cassie Bonner in a tribute to the ultimate soul master Stevie Wonder. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Give your spirit a lift at The Cotton Club's swing revival at the Cotton Museum Saturday night. The Memphis Knights will perform big band tunes at 7 p.m. and the folks from Red Hot Lindy Hop will provide free swing dancing lessons.

The Memphis Roller Derby will get your blood pumping in their high-energy bout with Birmingham's Tragic City Rollers. Cheer on the home team at the Mid-South Fairgrounds Youth Building on Saturday night. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Wake up your taste buds and your green side at the monthly Taste of the Garden cooking demo at the Memphis Botanic Garden. Local chefs demonstrate how to use locally-grown summer squash to create a tantalizing entree. The demo begins at 10 a.m.
