A&E News, May 27 

As we mentioned in our Riverfest preview, North Little Rock is hosting an inaugural, festival-tied fun run. The Rock N Stroll 5K Fun Run/Walk kicks off at Broadway and Main Streets at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 29. Registration is on the North Shore River Walk under the Broadway Bridge. Advance registration is $30 for adults and $10 for children 10 and under. Registration on the day of the event is $35 for adults and the same for children. Participants receive Riverfest passes and a T-shirt for entering.

In addition to hosting one of Riverfest's main stages, the Clinton Center is offering a number of special deals throughout the weekend. Since the center's normal parking area will be cordoned off for Riverfest, Thursday through Sunday visitors should park at Verizon Arena (for free) and ride a shuttle. On Saturday and Sunday, admission to the library is $2 off. Forty Two, the library's on-site restaurant, is also offering 10% off for diners who pay with Riverfest “River Bucks.” From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, the center hosts “Build My Pins,” where local artists will work with kids to make decorative pins that, like those in the Madeleine Albright collection on display through June 1, send a message.

Mark your calendar. From noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, June 2, the next Legacies & Lunch lecture, presented by the Butler Center, features Nathania Sawyer, associate head for special projects at the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, discussing shape note singing and its relationship to the town of Tull, which, for the past 125 years, has hosted an event called “Old Folks' Singing.” Sawyer, whose lecture will be based on “Blest Be the Tie That Binds: 125 Years of Old Folks' Singing in Tull, Arkansas,” hopes to be able to play some recordings from Tull during her lecture. She describes the music as the bridge between “raucous” Sacred Harp (a branch of shape note singing that uses four note shapes instead of seven) and traditional gospel. The lecture takes place at the Main Library's Darragh Center.

Little Rock's Ray McKinnon stars in the video for The Drive-By Truckers “This F*cking Job,” off the band's new album “The Big To-Do.” He and “That Evening Sun” director Scott Teems co-directed.
