First up is the activity out at OZ Arts Nashville, our favorite new arts and entertainment center. For those of you who may not know it, this Saturday is what has officially been called “Pi Day.” If the digits from the mathematical constant are viewed as a date, Saturday would be it! March 14, 2015. 3-14-15. Pi Day events out at OZ Arts Nashville, humorously enough, are beginning at 9:26 a.m., furthering the extension of Pi’s decimals of 3.1415926.

Attendees at OZ’s Pi Day celebration will enjoy music and visual arts and their relationship with mathematics and scientific principles. “To me, Pi represents infinite possibilities – both literally and figuratively – to view art through a mathematical lens. A logical extension was then to combine the digits of Pi with colors and shapes to form a unique synesthetic experience,” relates Cano Ozgener, artist and founder of OZ Arts. Laurie Anderson, Roy Wooten, Cano Ozgener, Mark Hanf, Joseph Hazelwood and Mark Rowan are all providing insight and contributing to this impressive weaving of art and science. Happy Pi Day, Nashville!

For sports fans, you don’t have to look far to find exciting sporting events this weekend! All eyes are on Nashville and the SEC Men’s Basketball Championship down at Bridgestone Arena.

Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl guided the Tigers to their first SEC Tournament win since 2007 last night, and continued with another knocking off Texas A&M 66-59.

First-come, first-served seats are still available for the Friday night show, so make sure to get in line early! You don’t want to miss this chance to see one of Nashville’s most celebrated and successful songwriters!
