Today's random downtown photo:
View of buildings on Second at Monroe.
And for something totally different, today you can see roller derby demonstrations by Memphis Roller Derby ladies on the Civic Center Plaza. Starts at 11:45.
The rain is back and so are the Blues, the Blues Foundation 30th Blues Music Awards that is. Tomorrow night, May 7th at 5:30 pm, Cook Convention Center. Their flyer touts over 7 hours of the best blues acts from all over the world, including performances by Maria Muldaur & Taj Mahal, Watermelon Slim and the Workers, Cedric Burnside & Lightnin' Malcolm, Billy Gibson, Delta Highway and many others. More than 65 nominees attend. A big night for fans and supporters of the Blues. Incidentally, Watermelon Slim and the Workers, nominated for 4 awards, will be playing at Ground Zero tonight.
