Save the date: On Thursday, May 6, the second annual Rock Candy 500 pinewood derby returns to the River Market Pavilion. Like last year, we'll have a 40-foot track, beer and race-themed music. Unlike last year, we'll have non-beer drinks and we're requiring advance registration by April 29. Get more details on Rock Candy and find a registration form on page 30 of this issue.

Kris Allen returns to Little Rock on April 8 for “One Day Without Shoes,” a fund-raiser for Tom's Shoes. Allen's also scheduled to play in Benton at the Saline Summer Daze festival. More info on Rock Candy.

Former Led Zeppelin lead singer Robert Plant is bringing a reconstituted Band of Joy with him to Robinson on July 15. As true Robert Plant geeks know, Band of Joy was the act Plant and John Bonham played in pre-Zep. This new version of Joy includes noted producer and roots singer/songwriter Buddy Miller on guitar and Patty Griffin on backing vocals. Tickets go on sale next Saturday.

Next week, Magda Sayeg will be a visiting artist at UCA. Sayeg is the most visible practitioner of yarn graffiti, where knitters “tag” trees, street signs and the like with their creations. Sayeg maintains the website knittaplease.com. Look for a Q&A with her on Rock Candy.

Earlier this week, Max Recordings digitally re-released the now self-titled debut from the now disbanded Afro-pop/funk act Eclipse Glasses. It's available on Amazon, iTunes and eMusic.

Speaking of Eclipse Glasses, former band member Andrew Morgan has another release to celebrate. Esteemed international label I'm a Cliche, a Paris record label owned by minimalist dance producer Cosmo Vitelli, just released Morgan's debut EP, “Teeth in the Rug.”

Local folk rocker Chris Denny's song “Time” is featured in the trailer for the new Showtime TV show, “The Big C,” starring Laura Linney. See the trailer on Rock Candy.
