Happy Monday!

Today in Memphis, we've got two new music and art spaces, a tap takeover, tuba serenades and an infectious grin. All of that and more is in your Monday Memphis news update.

– I know the Rudy Gay trade is last week's news, but if you haven't read this Grantland piece about the deal, you should.

– Nothing says love like a tuba serenade. For Valentines Day, you can enlist some enterprising U of M music students to deliver card, some chocolates and a tuba serenade to your sweetie.

– Starting at 7 p.m. tonight, Brooklyn Brewery is taking over the taps at both Flying Saucer locations. They'll have 10 different beers from the New York-based brewery at $3 each (because tonight is pint night).

– Attention, ladies (especially ladies who shop at the same places I shop): Madewell is coming to Memphis.

Here's a picture of Shaq Goodwin grinning. See, now you're grinning, too.

– Didn't get enough football food last night? Hog and Hominy is serving Frito Pie today (with homemade Fritos, of course) as long as it lasts.

– Yes, the Hi-Tone is closing, but here's some info on two new live music and arts venues: the reimagined A. Schwab and the new Crosstown Arts space.

    A.Shwab sounds like it could do something similar to this….

    Re concert venues, there was also a church south of Cooper Young that the Visibile School converted to a concert venue.  The church has a Johnny Cash connection…

  3. I cant seem to get a response from the U of M email address about the tuba serenades. Any ideas?

  4. Shannon – you should receive a reply this evening.  We were a bit overwhelmed by the response from the community yesterday.
