Getting Up Guide: A cask of Hopslam, a Band of Joy

By Alex Baldinger

A quick survey of Tuesday night's what-and-where:

Cask-conditioned Hopslam
By now, beer lovers around town have had time to sip the seasonal Bell's Hopslam from the bottle at a place like the Black Squirrel, or from the keg at Dodge City or Rustico. But tonight, the area's only cask of the Kalamazoo brew will be unveiled at ChurchKey, and if you've taken a liking to the devilishly-hopped yet still extremely drinkable double-IPA, you won't want to miss it in all of its unfiltered goodness. The hand-pumping starts at 4 p.m.

A Tribute to the Grace Bumbry Concert in the Kennedy White House
Vocalist-par-excellence Denyce Graves re-creates portions of the groundbreaking 1962 performance that made mezzo-soprano Grace Bumbry a household name after she performed for the Kennedy White House. Selections include works by Strauss, Copland and Saint-Saëns. At 7:30 p.m.

Robert Plant and the Band of Joy
The once and forever Led Zeppelin frontman tours with a re-tooled version of his pre-Zep band. It's not the reunion tour everyone perpetually hopes for, but until that day comes, we'll take it. With North Mississippi Allstars at 8 p.m.
