As part of a new series, the Preservation Pub will host a concert at 5 p.m. in the Speakeasy featuring Ivy Latham, Blood Sausage, Corn Bred, and Chamomile and Whiskey (who's hungry now?) to benefit Redeeming Hope Ministries and the Amplifier street paper. Donations will be accepted. 21+ only.
The Mr. Knoxville Contest--a beauty pageant spoof--kicks off at 6:30 at the Hilton Knoxville. Contestants will model formal wear and casual wear, and show off their best talents.
