Happy Friday, Memphis! Before we get to weekend fun, did you hear about the big celebration happening at AutoZone Park on 901 Day? I announced it yesterday.

Here are the five things you won’t want to miss in Memphis this weekend, plus a few extras.

1. Anime Blues Con, Memphis Cook Convention Center, All Weekend, $25-$75, all ages
Thousands of anime, fantasy, and comic fans will gather for panels, shopping, gaming, and of course, plenty of cosplay.

2. Broad On Ice, Broad Avenue Arts District, Friday 5 p.m. – 8 p.m., free, all ages/kid-friendly
Seasonal open-house night at the shops and galleries of Broad, including fizzy waters at T. Clifton Art, frozen fruit at Falling Into Place, lemonade at Paggio’s, a Christmas in July sale at Five In One, a coldbrew throwdown at City & State, and Big Barton on “stage” at the Cove at 9 p.m. Read more.

3. Memphis City Football Club v. Knoxville Force, Saturday, 7 p.m., Christian Brothers High School, $8 adv. online/$10 at the gate, all ages/kid-friendly
The Rogue Squadron need you to come out and cheer on our home soccer team in the last regular season game. I’m hearing there’s a real chance we can make the playoffs if we take home a win this Saturday. Don’t know much about the Memphis City Football Club? Check out what it’s like to go to a game in this post right here.

4. Time-Warp Drive-In, Summer Drive-In, Saturday, dusk to dawn, $10 per person, all ages
Black Lodge Video and Malco Theatres present the 4th annual Time Warp Drive In series. Movies start at dusk and go all night. This Saturday is “Killer Beauty: Women In Arms” night, featuring Kill Bill, Volume 1, Kill Bill, Volume 2, Faster Pussycat, Kill! Kill!,  and Teenage Girl Debs (SWV). Go here to see the lineup for all 2017 Time Warp Drive Ins.

5. SUSTO, The Levitt Shell, Sunday, free, show at 7:30 p.m., all ages
SUSTO, meaning “when your soul is separated from your body” in Spanish, formed out of inspiration from frontman Justin Osborne’s personal trip to Cuba. Based in Charleston, South Carolina, SUSTO calls their sound “alternative Americana”, but you can hear the Latin American influences woven throughout their parable-influenced lyricism. – This description written by Baylee.
