Grand Serenade, a brooding indie-rock quartet, played before a studio audience at "AETN Presents" in July, and on Friday, Nov. 23, at 6:30 p.m., that performance will air on KETS. All the guys in Grand Serenade are bikers, known for traipsing around the country on vintage motorcycles as much as for their tunes, which have garnered comparisons to Nada Surf and David Bowie. In September, Grand Serenade's bassist, Trevor Ware was hit by a drunk driver and seriously injured while riding his bike. Friday's air date was scheduled, in part, so that Ware could watch while surrounded by family. The performance showcases new material, rather than previous releases. Beyond Ware, Grand Serenade includes: Kyle Mays, guitar and vocals; Jordan Trotter, guitar; and Justin Seymore, drums. "AETN Presents" is Arkansas's answer to Austin City Limits and showcases live performances by Arkansas musicians. More info here.

The report focuses on the business activities of the Koch brothers — more famous for hundreds of millions in political spending aimed at slashing government services, regulation and taxes — in twelve states, including Arkansas. From the report: "The Kochs' extreme, self-serving agenda is bad for working families. And that reality is starkly embodied not only by their political persuasions, but by their business endeavors."

  • Late Night Dispatches from Midtown, Electric Cowboy and Elevations

    For this week’s cover story, three of us from the Times took a post-2 a.m. tour of Midtown, Electric Cowboy and Elevations to get some pictures and shout questions at strangers over the music. Fortunately, it’s easier to cold-start a conversation with someone when they’ve had 3 or 4 (or 9 or 10) drinks inside them. Unfortunately, although the willingness-to-talk curve goes up relative to the amount of alcohol consumed, the coherence-of-conversation curve moves in the opposite direction. Here are a few outtakes from a mostly sober night of inviting drunks to rant about city politics.
