Loyals Forever: SP Finale

Now it's time to say goodbye to one of the hottest stores to ever come to Memphis.

This Saturday, make your way to Aquarious Creative Studio (688 S. Cox, Memphis, TN 38104) for the Finale Sale and Party.

From 12p-12a, enjoy 50% discount shopping (everything has to go), then spend some time catching up with other Loyals while enjoying live music and performances. Wear your favorite SP fit for a chance to win a cash prize; there will also be a 5for$5 Photobooth.

Admission is only $3, which also gives you a chance to win over $300 in prizes for all loyals in attendance.

If you ever visited the store, you know that Sneak Peek was more than just a sneaker boutique; it was a movement. Not only a place for the latest kicks and urban gear, Sneak Peek was a place that encompassed the true meaning of hip-hop: artistic culture, music, political knowledge, and most importantly, individuality.

 Celebrate the good times with the #SPFAM as they say goodbye. It's an end of an era!

Live at New Daisy: Corinne Bailey Rae

Photo courtesy of
Grammy Award Winning and Platinum Recording Artist Corinne Bailey Rae will be performing at The New Daisy Theatre tonight. One of the last few stops on the North American leg of her tour, those in attendance will be blessed with the pleasure of hearing her soulful, honey-drenched voice.

Her debut single “Put Your Records On” brought her to fame in the US (she became only the fourth female British act in history to have her first album debut at number one on the Billboard Charts) but there are so many gems on that album (“Till It Happens To You” “Enchantment” “Breathless” and “I’d Like To” are standouts) you’re sure to be an instant fan after the first listen.

The Sea is more melancholy (it was recorded after the lost of her husband) but it has a very chill, reflective vibe ("Closer" is such a sexy song; your hips will sway as soon as the beat drops lol). Any person who says that they love soul music should have one if not both of these albums in their library.

I found out about this concert by accident a few months ago (I was researching something else and stumbled across it) and I’m SOOO excited! Upon the release of her sophomore album in January, I stated that she was one of the few artists that I wished to see perform live so imagine my surprise when I learned she’d be making her way to Memphis! Plus, New Daisy Theatre has a more intimate setting, so that will make the experience that more enjoyable.

Corinne Bailey Rae is an extremely talented singer-songwriter, so this show is sure to be memorable. Tickets can be purchased at Spin Street or by clicking here. Doors open at 7pm. You can also visit her website to learn more about her and her music. I also want ot send a special thank you to Neosoulville for making this concert happen. You guys rock!

So dear readers, who will be in attendance? What song(s) are you looking forward to her performing? Comment below and keep us NDLoop!~KT
