The Alys Stephens Center’s Starlight Gala is this weekend, but who can afford to go to that.  I know I can’t and if I were to venture a guess I’d say that you couldn’t either.  So what are the recently economically disillusioned masses to do while the urban haute bourgeoisie of Birmingham sip cocktails on the campus of UAB.  It’s simple really, just read the rest of this post and realize that you aren’t living in a one-show town.

I’ve been writing got plans 2.0 for several weeks now and it seems that I’m always plugging a show at Workplay.  At first I was feeling bad because I figured I was leaving some other venue out of The Terminal’s limelight.  Then as I started to think about it I realized that Workplay ain’t playing when it comes to bringing the shows to town.

Tonight, $15 will get you in to see Copeland, This Providence, Paper Route and Brooke Waggoner.  I was all over Copeland when Beneath Medicine Tree came out in ’03, so I don’t hesitate when I say you’ll enjoy this show.

Merrilee Challis of The Bottletree Cafe has an art show opening later this evening at the Bare Hands Gallery.  Also showing is artist Tracy Martin.  There’s a reception this evening from 6-10 p.m. So all you Bottletree fans come out and show some support for these local artists.

Saturday it wouldn’t hurt you to head back to Workplay for the Neko Case show, which you can pre-game at the bham.fm pre-party after you spend your day at the Birmingham Asian Cultures and Food Festival.

Looking to Sunday, you wouldn’t want to miss the 15th anniversary party at the Garage Café.  I’m not going to make any promises but you might find me there…


If two top notch Workplay shows, an Asian food festival, and an anniversary party at a GQ recognized bar doesn’t get you out of the house, maybe you could head out to Wicked, which begins its Birmingham performances this weekend, or you could take the kids to Walking With Dinosaurs.

Anything else?
