One more art opening this week: this afternoon at David Lusk Gallery, for A Vessel, A Path, an exhibition of paintings, and lovely ones they are, by Maysey Craddock. Today s big, big party is the 127th Annual St. Peter Home Picnic, a Memphis tradition that helps a lot of people and features carnival rides, a petting zoo, a chance to win a Saturn SL100, silent and live auctions sponsored by Target Stores of Memphis, and live music by the Bouffants. Down in Tunica, Kenny Rogers is at Grand Casino. Down on Beale Street, Every Mother s Nightmare (no, not the Bush daughters), Route 61, Bullet Theory, and Lupercus are at the New Daisy; Crash Into June with Scott Sudbury are at the Hard Rock CafÇ; and that wild woman of rock and blues, Barbara Blue, is at O Sullivan s on Beale (mmm, the way she talks). Elsewhere about town, Mose Vinson & Friends and The Fieldstones are at the Center for Southern Folklore; Palindrome, The Cloots, and Johnny Romania are at the Hi-Tone; Nate & the Rat Band are at Coconut Joe s out in Frayser (oh, come on, live a little); and last but certainly, certainly not least, before they all ship off to different institutes of higher learning later this summer, don t miss Accidental Mersh tonight at High Point Pinch. What are we gonna do without those guys?
