Art, Li'l Wayne, and Rugby In Prom Dresses This Weekend


Buy books and art in the same place tonight, at the opening reception for artist Pam Gamble's photographs at the new English Major Bookstore. The independently owned shop is situated between Old Zinnie's and the Lamplighter on Madison Avenue. The show runs from 7 to 11 p.m.

What's better than watching tough women throwing down in a rugby match? Watching those tough women play in tacky prom dresses, that's what. Don't miss the Memphis Women's Rugby Prom Dress Game on Saturday at East High School. The kick-off is at noon.

Sales of local art, fabrics, jewelry, and other gift items at the "Arts of March" party on Saturday night will benefit the Church Health Center's mission of providing medical care for the uninsured. Shoppers will be treated to live music by the Delta Nomads and Lila & Her Soulful Ensemble of Musicians. The sale runs from 6 to 10 p.m. at Inbalance Fitness.

Take a trip back to the psychedelic 1960s at Rebirth of Soul's Jimi Hendrix Tribute at the New Daisy on Saturday night. The Eugene Gales Band, a local group that's played with the nationally known Experience Hendrix tour, will cover Hendrix classics, beginning at 8 p.m. Rolling Stone Magazine named rapper Lil' Wayne's album Tha Carter II the third-best album of 2008. See why when he performs live at the FedExForum on Sunday night with T-Pain, the Gym Class Heroes, and Keri Hilson. The show begins at 7 p.m.
