Whoa. Watch videos of hits by En Vogue, SWV and Silk, who headline the Delta Classic 4 Literacy Old Skool Concert on Friday, Sept. 2 at Riverfest Amphitheater, and the '90s really do feel old school. That's a hard pill to swallow for anyone over, I don't know, 30. It seems like just yesterday that I was grinding watching other people grind to these songs at the junior high dance.

Tickets, which range from $20 for general admission, to $45 for actual seats, to $75 fo VIP, are available via Uncle T's, Ugly Mikes, AR Baptist College, Next Day Wireless and the Record Rack in PB.

    July 16, 2015
    Shuggie Otis and his three-piece band drew a near-full house at Stickyz Wednesday night — a mixed crowd of those who could recall when Otis was being heralded as America’s next top guitarist and those who likely heard him first through his being sampled by the likes of Beyonce and J Dilla. /more/

  • New music from Lucero, 'Went Looking For Warren Zevon's Los Angeles'

    June 15, 2015
    NPR has the new single from Memphis band (and local favorites) Lucero, the first single off their forthcoming LP "All A Man Should Do," due out September 18 via ATO Records. They call it a "a meditation on missed off-ramps," in which Little Rock native Ben Nichols "honors his spiritual mentor Warren Zevon — and another, Paul Westerberg, whose talk-ballad style clearly served as inspiration — with scenes from an urban pilgrimage gone poooft, set to a gentle driving beat." They also quote Nichols statement of purpose for the new record: "I was 15 years old in 1989," he says. "This record sounds like the record I wanted to make when I was 15. It just took 25 years of mistakes to get it done." /more/

  • Staff Picks: Microbes, jaguar attacks, Adam Sandler and more

    We've been reading a kergillion books lately at our house. Scrambling to make it to 1,000 books before kindergarten. Don't tell them I said this, but I did the math and I don't think we'll make it. Regardless, we've read some wonderful books, but one that has moved me the most in the last few weeks is "Tiny Creatures: The World of Microbes." It is amazing at putting the little things into the context of enormous planet earth. It is beautifully illustrated and handily written.

  • A 'used' pot worth thousands and more Roadshow news

    I stopped by the Antiques Roadshow at the Statehouse Convention Center for a couple of hours today to see what gems people had hauled in from their attics and garages and mantelpieces, and right off the bat I learned about the pot shown above from tribal arts appraiser Linda Dyer.
