Good morning and happy May Day! We're almost through the week, so take a look at what's going on around town to keep you busy today.
At noon in the visitor center, catch Charlie and the Foxtrots perform during WDVX's Blue Plate Special with Radio birds. As always, it's free to attend.
At 2 p.m., the Candoro Arts and Heritage Center will have a life drawing session for artists with live models. Bring the sketching materials of your choice and $10. No membership is required. For more info call (865) 573-0709.
At 6 p.m., a coalition of unions, community, student, civil rights, and faith organizations will gather on Market Square to demand Tennessee's elected officials put the people first by rallying for a living wage, public education, and voting rights for all. The group will march to Harriet Tubman Park for a community barbecue. More info here.
Then at 7:30, the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra will perform the first of its Symphony on the Square concerts. However, it's a bit cool today, so the performance will be held in the Bijou Theatre (some instruments are sensitive to the temperature). It's still free! Still come early and get a seat! More info here.
Wrap up the night at the Pilot Light, where Apache Dropout will perform with Psychic Baos, the Mutations, Daddy Don't, and Three Tsunamis. Cover's $5. 18+ only.
