Cutting Room for May 15

I get to be James Bond. That’s the deal. They named the next Spider-Man actor and, go figure, it’s another British dude. Asa Butterfield will be your new, very young, Spidey.

Movin’ & Shakin’

Last week the 36th Annual Blues Music Awards were handed out May 7 in Memphis in a gala event at the Cook Convention Center. In some ways, the sold-out dinner and awards show was your usual dinner and awards show. For a blues fan, the awards were an overload of industry luminaries and newcomers, with a wealth of performances. Artists on hand included Charlie Musselwhite, Keb' Mo', Bobby Rush, John Hammond and Elvin...
