The 901 is buzzing with so much activity and various developments. Here are some fun and exciting things that were announced this month.

What’s New in Memphis: May 2021

Go Grizz!

The Memphis Grizzlies are headed to the NBA playoffs for the first time in four years. They defeated the Golden State Warriors (at Golden State, might we add) and won their first round on Sunday, May 23, against the Utah Jazz. They are making their way to victory … we hope! Be sure to cheer them on.

18 Foot Mural Comes to Summer Avenue

Off Summer Avenue, you can find these larger than life music icons looking down on you!
