16: The Light and Sound Machine
At Third Man Records, the monthly Light and Sound Machine avant-garde film series hosts Nam June Paik: I Make Technology Ridiculous, a rare local exhibition of short works about and by the late Korean-American video art pioneer who made electronic bricolage of public television. Of special note: Guadalcanal Requiem, Paik's 1977 meditation on time, memory and global conflict. —JR

May 19 and 20 will mark the unveiling of the $585 million, 2.1 million-square-foot downtown convention center, Music City Center, with a two-day concert event.

23: Voices: a Reading of Letters From the Brehman Collection
Nashvillian-by-way-of-London Jason Brown started collecting letters of note and other artistic ephemera 20 years ago, and the resulting Brehman Collection will provide the source material for these readings. With music by the Gypsy Hombres, food truck cuisine from Your Dish Is Our Command and new art by Ed Nash, the event, at Nash's studio, will feature readers including musician Paul Burch, stylist/writer Libby Callaway and writer/musician Jonathan Marx — breathing new life into a 19th century "Dear Jane" letter, observations from the French Revolution and other missives. —SH
