HOT WATER HILLS FESTIVAL
Hill Wheatley Plaza. $5, free for ages 11 and younger.


Low Key Arts' annual Hot Water Hills Music and Arts Festival is going to be a for-sure good time for anyone who digs having fun and enjoying music and activities in a family-friendly atmosphere.

There's gonna be a raft of great live music, including the Memphis Dawls, Adam Faucett and The Tall Grass, Telegraph Canyon, Brian Martin, Kentucky Knife Fight, A.J. Gaither, The Jamaican Queens and the Arkansas School for Math, Sciences and the Arts' Folk Music Ensemble.

With an array that diverse, it's guaranteed you'll hear something that will tickle your fancy.

But that's not all! There will also be a Retro Rummage Sale (like, real-deal 1983-and-earlier vintage stuff, so butt out, 1984-2013 stuff!). There will be an artists' market, kids' activity tent, a teepee village and other artist-created experiences and The Cardboard City contest (with cash prizes of $400 and $100). And, of course, there will also be refreshments on hand, with beer, Grapette, tacos and sandwiches available for purchase.

Bring lawn chairs and good vibes; don't bring outside food or drinks or bad vibes. The event starts at 4 p.m. Friday and at noon Saturday. Here's the schedule.

    Recently, a trove of band business cards from the golden era of Arkansas garage bands was discovered and put on eBay. I was able to purchase some of them, including one by a little known 1960s garage band from Little Rock named The Mercenaries. Their record, on the cult favorite MY records label based in Little Rock, was released in early 1967. Their songs, including the atmospheric and heavy “Things Found Here” along with the psychedelic tinged “Take It All” are obscure even by garage rock standards. They were not featured on the 1999 Butler Center MY records compilation and their story has not been told before
