This weekend in Memphis music
We know it’s tempting to curl up in front of the tv to watch pre-Oscar coverage all weekend. But we hope some of the awesome shows over the next few days will persuade you to make an appearance in the real world. Then you can go back to debating whether Natalie Portman really deserves it anyway. Check it out:
