  • The Hot Water Hills Music & Arts Festival recently announced its lineup.

The Hot Water Hills Music & Arts Festival is back for its second year. This time around, the festival will have two stages and nearly 20 bands. One of the stages — The Front Porch Stage — will be powered using solar energy panels.

Headliners include Dikki Du & The Zydeco Crew and Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass on Friday night, and Dirtfoot and Water Liars on Saturday night.

The festival is getting particularly artsy this year with its Cardboard City competition. Festival attendees are invited to participate by registering in teams of four. Each team will have four hours to bring all of their cardboard creations to life, with a shot at a $400 first-place prize a $100 prize for second place. Arkansans might not get too many chances to compete in snowman-building competitions, but cardboard cities are definitely something we can master. Space in the competition is limited to 10 teams. More information is available here.

In addition to the music and contest, the festival offerings include beer, wine, soft drinks, food and a wealth of family-friendly activities.

  • Help Knox Hamilton replace their stolen gear

    April 16, 2015
    Over the weekend, Little Rock indie pop band Knox Hamilton played a show in Portland, and on their way out town, while they'd stopped to "take in the sights" at Multinomah Falls, the band's van was robbed. They lost four guitars, a bass, and various other equipment and valuables (including cash, phone chargers, passports and a guitar strap hand-made by one of the band member's mothers!) that they'll undoubtedly need to continue their tour — their next show is scheduled for April 25. The band has a GoFundMe campaign set up for fans to help out. /more/
  • Live Review: Jason Aldean at Verizon Arena

    April 13, 2015
    Jason Aldean brought his brand of hard-driving, modern country music to Verizon Arena Saturday night on his aptly named Burn It Down Tour, firing up his army of fans with his sturdy rock-tinged voice, energetic stage presence and an outright blaze of pyrotechnics. /more/
  • Fresh! coming to former OW Pizza location near Capitol

  • New video from Pallbearer, 'Watcher in the Dark'

    April 7, 2015
    Here's the great new video from Little Rock doom metal troupe Pallbearer, a 10 minute long plot-less short film backed by their epic "Watcher in the Dark" directed by Little Rock native Adam Heathcott (now based in Portland). It's a kind of solemn, desert-oracle kaleidoscope, with shades of Jodorowsky and "Zabriskie Point" that finally descend into pure foggy visual abstraction /more/
  • New album this month from Jimbo Mathus, 'Blue Healer'

    April 6, 2015
    Unkempt visionary, Squirrel Nut Zippers founder, former sideman for Jim Dickinson and Buddy Guy, self-proclaimed "Arkansas Son-in-Law"— Jimbo Mathus has lived many lifetimes, more than most of us could stomach. This month, by means of a work ethic that can only be described as a punishing, Mathus is back with a new album, "Blue Healer," recorded in Water Valley, Mississippi with Fat Possum & Big Legal Mess producer Bruce Watson. /more/
  • New mixtape from Pepperboy, 'Pottersfield'

    April 3, 2015
    Little Rock native and living legend Pepperboy is back with a new mixtape this month, "Pottersfield," which is probably the year's most existentially fraught and death-obsessed local record to date. Pepperboy has always walked a lonely road (marched to the beat of his own 808?), with conceptual LPs focusing on the horrors of war, etc., but "Pottersfield" finds him in the new and harrowing position of contemplating his own impending mortality, even somewhat enthusiastically on tracks like "Gold Casket" and "Dead Heaven." /more/
  • Ride the Arkansas Times Blues Bus to the Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale

    March 27, 2015
    For the first time ever the Times is taking two buses to this year's Juke Joint Festival in Clarksdale, Miss., which calls itself "half blues festival, half small-town fair and all about the Delta." Over 100 blues musicians will perform over the weekend at classic juke joints, blues clubs and small stages — last year's event brought attendees from 46 states and 28 countries. We'll be heading down on April 11 at 9 a.m., and the trip will come complete with live music en route: Blues Boy Jag will play on one bus and Jason Hale on the other. We'll also stop for lunch at the legendary Hollywood Cafe in Tunica. /more/
  • Pre-order Mulehead's new album 'Forever Out Of Tune,' out April 28

    March 25, 2015
    Mulehead, the beloved Little Rock alt-country band who called it a day a decade ago but now very much rides again, have finished a new album, "Forever Out Of Tune," which will be out via Max Recordings on April 28. But! For those of you who can't wait that long or who feel inclined to support an important and deserving local cultural institution, you can pre-order the record today at Pledge Music and get immediate access to a free download. /more/
  • Stream the new Let's Talk Figures spring compilation

    March 19, 2015
    Let's Talk Figures, the prolific, slightly scary, wildly uneven and utterly inspired Fayetteville art-rock label we profiled in December, is back with a new compilation, "Spring Mix 2015." The mix features the best and worst of their roster, many of whom we've posted about here in the past, including Comfortable Brother, High Lonesome, Dividend, Devin Nu Phlo, Bob For Apples and many more. It sounds like an Miami-related acid flashback, or like diving headfirst into the molten core of the Internet. /more/
  • Mix of the Week: A partial list of songs that mention 'Bangin' In Little Rock'

    March 18, 2015
    The Rock Candy mix of the week is a partial list of songs that mention the 1994 HBO documentary "Gang Wars: Bangin' In Little Rock." I've omitted local songs, because I'm more interested in the way the movie defined the city for outsiders in a strange, metonymic way. I'm sure I'm still leaving out plenty, feel free to suggest more in the comments. /more/

    A normal day at the Little Rock Urban Farming's G Street Farm might consist of breakfast being made at 6 a.m. from fresh eggs and garden produce, a flower bed being cleared to make a wedding bouquet, soil being plowed and covered in compost for a new crop, an outdoor walk-in refrigerator being built, vegetables being hung along the rafters of the shed to dry and fresh-picked peaches being peeled and canned while a large pot of fresh tomato sauce is being prepared for the team's dinner.
