7:30 p.m. Robinson Center Music Hall. $26.50–$64.50.
Thursday night is your last chance to see the latest national tour of the 10-time Tony Award winning musical "Hello, Dolly." This incarnation stars Sally Struthers, famous as Meathead's wife in "All in the Family" and for stumping for the Christian Children's Fund, in the titular role. You know the basic pitch: Some of Broadway's best loved songs highlight the musical misadventures of the vivacious Dolly as she sets her sights on the gruff half-millionaire Horace Vandergelder, a client she quickly decides is her perfect match.

RON ROBINSON THEATER GRAND OPENING
7 p.m. Arcade Building. Free.
It's only fitting that the grand opening of the Central Arkansas Library System's 315-seat Ron Robinson Theater in the new Arcade Building in the River Market district celebrates one of our state's greatest native sons, Levon Helm. The night starts with a screening of the documentary "Ain't In It For My Health: A Film About Levon Helm." It's a must-see for fans. As Lindsey Millar wrote of it during the Little Rock Film Festival, where it screened this year, "it's a portrait of a warm, gregarious man with a gift for telling stories and singing songs. It's filmed almost entirely in Woodstock, but Levon's Turkey Scratch roots always show." Helm's daughter, Amy Helm, will be on hand for a question and answer session following the screening. After that, she and her band, The Handsome Strangers, will perform. Expect the folk-rockers to play at least a few songs you know. JG
DON'T STOP PLEASE
9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $6.
The Conway band Don't Stop Please is hard to pin down in the best possible way. Fusing folk, rock, jazz, bluegrass, chamber pop and various Latin styles, Don't Stop Please seems gleefully oblivious to any labels. Crowded with multi-instrumentalists, the band's self-titled album bounces from genre to genre. Anna Horton's voice shines with a very in-the-moment quality and delivery. "Luca" is the perfect showcase for her voice — jazzy and tropical with plenty of space for her words to bleed out. Album highlight "Missed Echo" plays like a funeral dirge full of sorrow and misplaced optimism. A gently plucked, wandering guitar line accompanies a mournful cello before Joel Ludford details the universal themes of loss and longing, with some drinking thrown in for good measure, "sing me the song, the one you know about, how it all went wrong in your head and made you useless." The night gets started with opener Joe Sundell, formerly of popular local band Damn Bullets, as well as a slew of Austin, Texas, bands, including Sad Daddy and the Austin Steamers. Sundell's Americana sound is steeped in folk, bluegrass, hot jazz, and a jaunty shade of country. JG
BENEFIT FOR FREDDY SOLLEDER FEATURING HOLY SHAKES
8 p.m. Delucas Pizzeria, Hot Springs. $10.
You might remember that Holy Shakes won the 2012 Arkansas Times Musician Showcase with a raucous set of Dischord Records-era punk rock. Soon after, Holy Shakes released the terse, menacing album "Feast or Famine" and then, like so many bands are wont to do, they suddenly broke up. They come together one more time this Saturday night at a benefit show for frontman Bill Solleder's brother, Freddy Solleder. A staple of Maxine's and the Hot Springs music scene, Freddy has recently been diagnosed with cancer. All proceeds from the show will go to pay for his medical bills. If you have never seen them live, Holy Shakes traffic in a swaggering, often ferocious strain of punk. Little Rockers take note: This is a one-off show with no future plans for any more Holy Shakes shows, so a weekend trek to the Spa City to see a great live band and support a mainstay of the local music scene is in order. Rounding out what's sure to be a special night are White Glove Test, Brian Martin, Healer, Opportunist and Amanda Avery. JG
Good analysis, something completely lacking from the daily newspaper's sports reporters/columnists.
