It's Thursday, July 18, International Nelson Mandela Day. Happy birthday to astronaut/senator/pilot John Glenn (1921-2016), the third American in space. Today in 1953, a very young Elvis Presley, then working as a truck driver, recorded 'My Happiness' and 'That's When Your Heartaches Begin,' on a $3.98 disc at the Memphis recording service. They were his first official recordings. He gave the record to his mother. In the weather, expect rain showers throughout the day, with a high in the mid 70s. Here are a few things to do after you honor Nelson Mandela today:




• Groove to the Afrobeat music of Wamba, at Concerts in the Park, 6:30 p.m., Lovejoy Fountain Park, Southwest Third Avenue and Harrison Street. www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/69555

• Forsooth, thou should see "Taming of the Shrew" by the Original Practice Shakespeare Festival, 7 p.m., Irving Park, 707 N.E. Fremont St. www.opsfest.org/

• See a gaggle of national comedians at the Portland Queer Comedy Festival's special taping of local Genius of Comedy, 7 p.m., Funhouse Lounge, 2432 S.E. 11th Ave. Cost: $25. portlandqueercomedyfestival.com/
