This coming weekend is going to be a blast. Friday night is Goth at the Gallery. IONS Gallery is hosting a Goth night where you can do your best Goth Distraught in 30 seconds or less and maybe even when a prize for it!
Saturday night is going to be the Paranormal 101 workshop and investigation at the gallery. Expedition Unknown will be there to show people the tricks and tools of the trade while giving the attendees a glimpse back into the rough and tumble days of downtown Memphis.
