A&E News, July 12 

Mark your calendar: The Allman Brothers have been confirmed as the headliner for Fayetteville's Bikes, Blues and BBQ event. The Southern rock legends play the Randal Tyson Track Center on Friday, Sept. 26. Michael Burks and the Lee Boys are also part of the weekend bill. Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 11, via bikesbluesandbbq.org.

Molten Lava, the popular '80s-flavored pop band out of Fayetteville, is no longer Molten Lava. They've changed their name to Boom Ki-netic. In a press release, the band says that the name change follows a trademark filing by another band named Molten Lava. This band — the one that filed for the trademark — claims in a blog post on their MySpace page that a member of “bogus” Molten Lava — that's the one based in Fayetteville; try and keep up — was a friend and fan of the “real” Molten Lava back in 1998, when they formed and released an album called “Hot Liquid Rock.” The 1998-vintage Molten Lava, which includes Isaac Alexander of the Easys and Big Silver fame, is currently at work on a follow-up. Boom Kinetic, too, plans to release an album in August, hopefully around the same time as another '80s-flavored local act, Kyoto Boom.

“Shotgun Stories,” the much-lauded debut feature film by Little Rock native Jeff Nichols, is for sale on DVD now.

Parents of young tykes, take note. “The Backyardigans,” those lovable, puffy knights and dragons from Nickelodeon, are bringing the “Tale of the Mighty Knights” to Robinson Center Music Hall Aug. 5-6 for three performances. The story follows Uniqua and Tyrone “as they be-come knights and embark on a quest to protect King Pablo's unpredictable egg.” Who couldn't appreciate that?
