A friend in Fayetteville,
which NOAA says has reached its high today of 19 degrees, is staying home rather than getting her car out from under a ton of snow. Northwestern Arkies are really socked in.

8 p.m. Verizon Arena. $49-$159.
Apparently, you Arkansas (and surrounding area) Parrot Heads were rabid enough to warrant a second visit in as many years from Jimmy Buffett and The Coral Reefer Band
Now, last time this crew was in town, back in March of 2012, I went down to the NLR side of the river before the show to take in the epic, SEC-worthy tailgating
. Just let me say this: These folks have got partying down to a science to a disconcerting extent. I saw all manner of ingenious inventions, most of which were designed with the sole purpose of expediting, intensifying or otherwise increasing the efficiency of the drinking of booze.
Now, it might or might not be pretty cold outside (Update: It's gonna be colder than a well-digger's ass), but odds are that it no matter the weather, it's gonna be some good tailgating and a festive atmosphere all around Verizon Arena.

HOLIDAY HANG OUT
8 p.m. White Water Tavern. $60 (full pass).
As far as pure, unbridled, weekend-long rock 'n' roll bacchanalia goes, you'd be hard-pressed to top the annual Holiday Hang Out
, organized by the good folks of Last Chance Records, Tree of Knowledge and White Water Tavern.
This year they've got this thing busting at the seams with upwards of a baker's dozen of some of the finest Americana performers around, an excellent mix of locals and out-of-towners that includes Bonnie Montgomery, Slobberbone, Glossary, Two Cow Garage, Red Collar, Mulehead, JKutchma, Kevin Kerby, John Moreland, John Paul Keith, Isaac Alexander, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, Adam Faucett
and Ben Nichols
All of those folks will perform over the course of three days at White Water (plus a special in-store performance at Arkansas Record & CD Exchange at 3 p.m. Saturday). There'll be two nights of Jameson-and-PBR-fueled high-jinks followed by Breakfast, Books & Booze
on Sunday, which will allow you intrepid partiers to land softly with the help of eggs, Bloody Marys and some fine literature, all accompanied by some acoustic tunes.
You might should've already got your pass to this, but there could still be a few tickets available. Check here
to find out.
