played out on a golden harp."
'96 Sharrif Simmons
Saturday, May 10, marks a year to the day since Sharrif Simmons was shot at point-blank range during an armed robbery on University Blvd. On the anniversary of the assault that nearly ended his life, the Birmingham-based spoken-word artist and songwriter performs at Bailey's Irish Pub.
This week's edition of Birmingham Weekly featured an open letter from Simmons, in which he expressed gratitude to the numerous people in the local arts and music communities who have worked on his behalf during the last 12 months. The 11 p.m. show at Bailey's will be dedicated to those people.
