As the holidays and 2012 come to a close, here are a few events to round out the rest of your year.
Angie Stone, Faith & Dwele
Hey, don't forget your last chance to enjoy a great evening of R&B before Christmas Day on Saturday (Dec. 22) as Angie Stone, Faith Evans and Dwele make their way to the Cannon Center. Mix & Mingle Entertainment always puts on first-class concerts and this will be no different! The show kicks off 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the Cannon Center box office, all Ticketmaster outlets and ticketmaster.com. I'll see you there.
D.R.A.M.A. Productions Presents "The Gift"
P.A. Bomani and the B.I.T. Allstars are back for another exciting installment of The B.I.T. on Dec. 28. This is the last show of 2012 and features special guest poet Hardface. The B.I.T. features the best in local sketch and improv comedy. If you've never experienced this type of show, you're in for a treat. The B.I.T. is being held at Open Heart located at 2489 Broad Ave. Admission is $10 and show times are 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Arrive early for good seats!
Peace & Freedom Weekend 2013
For the past few years there has always been a great weekend of entertainment lined up for MLK Weekend. Next year shouldn't be any different as AMS Concerts presents the 7th Annual Peace and Freedom Weekend, featuring Southern Soul King Sir Charles Jones and the infamous Bobby Rush at Sam's Town Casino in Tunica. It goes down Jan. 18 at 8 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at all Ticketmaster outlets and online at ticketmaster.com.
The 2012 Holiday Party Tour Continues
Wow, this has been a very busy holiday season! However, the holiday cheer is quickly coming to a close. But not before I top things off with about three more events. I'm looking forward to checking out The Redwing Group's Christmas Reception at Metro 67 on this Thursday night, as well as the Memphis Urban League Young Professional's Christmas Party on Friday (Dec. 21) at the Crescent Club, located at 6075 Poplar Ave., from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. Then I'll rest for a few days, enjoy a little Christmas dinner and get prepared for my yet undetermined New Year's Eve festivities.
In the meantime, have a very Merry Christmas. Also make sure you join me next week as I bring you "The Year in Review." I'll share 2012's most memorable highlights, which includes the good, the bad as well as the odd. Until then, that's what's happening.
