Don’t forget that Live at the Plaza returns next Friday (June 1). Check out the lineup here and reasons your should attend this fun downtown music event each Friday in June and July.
Theatre Tuscaloosa presents Second Samuel
This weekend, audiences are invited to visit Second Samuel (May 18-27), a sleepy, south Georgia town where it’s hard to keep a secret, but everybody has one. The show is set during the summer that Second Samuel’s beloved music teacher, Miss Gertrude, passes away. As her friends and neighbors prepare for her funeral, her mysteries are unveiled. Nobody could have imagined how the death of one sweet little old lady would turn the entire town upside down! This show is appropriate for audience members ages 13 and older. This play will be held in Bean-Brown Theatre on Shelton State Community College Campus.
Alabama Boxing Hall of Fame
The Alabama Boxing Hall of Fame will hold its annual induction ceremony this Friday at the Tuscaloosa River Market. Boxing legend Evander Holyfield will be among the inductees. There will also be six fights, including the debut of Deontay Wilder’s brother Marcellus. You won’t want to miss this night of celebrating Alabama’s boxing heroes!
Battio, Cats of Kentuck, and Bronzi Blonde at Green Bar
Enjoy a night of live music on May 25th at Green Bar from 9pm- 3am with Battio, Cats of Kentuck, and Bronzi Blonde. Green Bar is one of Tuscaloosa’s premier music venues and has hosted the likes of Alabama Shakes and St. Paul and the Broken Bones. Playing their jazzed-up rock that reminds one of the legendary band the Doors, the Cats of Kentuck could be the next big thing. See for yourself at Green Bar this Friday!
Bama Belle BBQ Cruise
The Bama Belle has cranked up for their spring/summer season, and one of their first events will be a fun and relaxing float down the river with live music and BBQ. You won’t want to miss this uniquely Tuscaloosa experience. Full steam ahead! Make reservations at www.bamabelle.org for your Barbecue Dinner Cruise on Friday, May 25, from 7:00PM-9:30PM for $35.
