  • Seats on the Arkansas Times Blues Bus and Cash Bus are nearly sold out.

The weekend of Oct.5-6 is rapidly approaching. Actually, it's approaching at more or less the exact same speed as all other future weekends, as far as the speed of time itself is concerned. But whatever, it's closer than most of those other weekends, and what that means is that the Johnny Cash Music Festival in Jonesboro (Oct. 5) and the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena (Oct. 4-6) are nearly upon us.

The Arkansas Times has chartered buses to the Cash festival on Oct. 5 and to King Biscuit on Oct. 6 and as of 2:40 p.m. Sept. 11, there were three seats left for the Blues Bus and a dozen left for the Cash Bus.

Now these things are a pretty swell deal: For $99 per person, you'll get round-trip transportation to the festival, admission to the concerts, dinner before the show and live music and beer en route. Not too shabby! The Cash Bus was a blast last year, with plenty of Diamond Bear beer and singing and general revelry on the bus.

The Cash festival features Willie Nelson, Rosanne Cash, Dierks Bentley and The Civil Wars, while the Oct. 6 lineup at KBBF features Bonnie Raitt, The Cate Brothers, The James Cotton Band and many, many more.

If you're really hoss, you could get tickets for both. But if you want to get a seat aboard both or just one, you'd best get moving. Call 501-375-2985 for reservations.
