DEAD BEATLES NIGHT 9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.
There will be lots of “If you're going to stab a Beatle, STAB PAUL!” shouting on Wednesday night, predicts Jason Weinheimer, spokesman, sometimes singer and guitarist of the Libras, Little Rock's favorite theme-night-obsessed cover band. After memorable nights covering the songs of Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Elvis Costello, the Libras dip into the canon to pay tribute to the songs of John Lennon and George Harrison. Joining Weinheimer onstage will be Isaac Alexander, Chris Michaels, Greg Spradlin, Dylan Turner and Charles Wyrick, who're moonlighting from regular duty in bands like the Big Silver, the Boondogs, the Easys and Western Meds. New Orleans native Dave Easely, who plays the pedal steel hauntingly and often without shoes, will open the show and perform as the Libras' special guest. A well-placed whiskey shot or seven is sure to coax the dudes into just about anything you want to hear, maybe even something from Paul or Ring

Sen. Tom Cotton, cordial to a fault, appeared before a capacity crowd at the 2,200 seat Pat Walker Performing Arts Center at Springdale High tonight to a mixed chorus of clapping and boos. Other than polite applause when he introduced his mom and dad and a still moment as he led the crowd in a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance — his night didn't get much better from there.
Robocalls -- recorded messages sent to thousands of phone numbers -- are a fact of life in political campaigns. The public doesn't like them much, judging by the gripes about them, but campaign managers and politicians still believe in their utility.
