Hot deals and sounds hit streets Thursday

Get out this Fourth of July week and put some bang, sparkle and pop in your life.

This month’s Cooper-Young Night Out, when independent business owners offer discounts at restaurants, retailers, vintage and record stores, tattoo shops, art and antique shops in the coolest neighborhood in Memphis, is set for 5-9 p.m. Thursday, July 5.

The Soul Thieves will provide funk and groove in the gazebo at the intersection of Cooper and Young from 6-9 p.m. Front man Zach Gilliam is a Memphian whose love and passion for creating music is unmistakable. The band is influenced by musicians such as Jimi Hendrix, Joe Bonamassa, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Dave Matthews Band, The Black Keys, Eric Clapton, John Mayer, Led Zeppelin, Muddy Waters, BB King and many more. But The Soul Thieves have a sound all their own: gritty, soulful, and funky rock and blues.

Other events include an art show at David Perry Smith Gallery with new pieces by Mary Long-Postal, and another at Tsunami titled “Mindless Journey of Mishaps,” with artists Sophie Laurenzi, Ron Marion Jr. and Brendan Couch-Smith, from 6-8 pm.

There will be live music at Central BBQ, Celtic Crossing, Café Ole and Sweet Grass. All CY restaurants and bars will have dine-in and pick-up specials on food and drinks.

Discounts can be found at all CY retail shops. Babysitting will be provided by the owners of Midtown ATA Martial Arts on Central and Cooper Cottage Daycare on Cooper. Buy one peircing, get one free at Underground Art.
