The Old and the Unusual

Everyman Books on Martin Luther King Jr. Street offers a lot more merchandise than books, although books alone are enough to get my attention. There's a couple of old quilts like Great-Grandma used to make and plenty of beads and baubles, musical instruments, bric-a-brac and area travel information.

The owner teaches a few music lessons on the side, and the place is becoming known for its Open Mic Nights once a month. That's where you, yes YOU, can sing your songs, play your music or recite your poetry and prose. Tonight, however, features a mini-concert with two Alabama musicians. Joe Kirkwood, who has written songs about Old Cahawba, bridges, the Alabama River and growing up in Birmingham, is the featured performer. Local songwriter Destiny Brown opens the show. Cost is only $5. Oh yes, the concert begins at 7:30 p.m.
