All is not exactly well in the world of Riverfest, with ticket sales reportedly down and CeeLo likely getting angrier by the second, but it was a perfectly memorable, crowded and strange weekend, and the Times' own Brian Chilson was there on the ground documenting it. Relive the thing from the safety of your own home / phone, far from the heat, the Jägermeister t-shirts and the chicken-on-a-stick.

  • Why Riverfest stopped payment on CeeLo's check

    May 27, 2014
    Yesterday, we reported that Riverfest had a contractual dispute with headliner CeeLo Green over the length of his set Saturday night at the First Security Amphitheatre, and would not pay him anything beyond their initial deposit: "Most entertainers require a 10-50% deposit, and CeeLo's was on the higher end of the deposit range," said board spokesperson Cheddy Wigginton. This morning, in a statement to THV, CeeLo's manager denied that the festival had withheld payment, saying that "despite reports, they were given a check after his performance for the full amount discussed." /more/

  • Riverfest finale

    May 26, 2014
    If silence on social media and news media are any indication, Riverfest ended with only the bang of fireworks last night and nothing more unsettling. Brian Chilson continued his monumental cataloguing of the three-day event on the Arkansas River with the traditional fireworks shot, enhanced this year by the bridge lighting project. Don't know yet how crowds compared, but they appeared healthy. /more/

    May 25, 2014

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.
