Get a spot on the Times Blues Bus 

ae_news1-1.jpg

We've still got a few spots left on the Arkansas Times Blues Buses headed to the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena-West Helena this weekend. Once again, we're hauling blues lovers to the Saturday portion of the festival, and once again, it's a hell of a bargain, at $99 a person for round-trip transportation, free booze and musical entertainment by Greg Spradlin and Bluesboy Jag on the buses, plus a stopover in DeValls Bluff for barbecue at Craig's.

The bus leaves at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, from the parking garage at Second and Main streets downtown and returns that evening. The headliner for Saturday night is Keb' Mo'. Other performers include Marcus "Mookie" Cartwright, Lonnie Shields, Tommy Castro and the Stax Revue with Eddie Floyd, Duck Dunn and Steve Cropper, plus many more. Call 501-375-2985 to order tickets.

Ho-Hum's Rod Bryan has a new musical project called First Baptist Chemical that's recently released a self-titled digital album. The core of the group, on the record at least, includes Alex Piazza, Helen Davey, Peter Moschel, Brian Rodgers and Jeff Dempsey, with a handful of local and regional standouts — Lynn Bridges, John Leflar, Barry Poynter, Greg Spradlin, Dave Hoffpauir, Frank Couch (Blue Mountain) — contributing elsewhere. Buy it via anthro.tv/fbc.

Box Turtle has announced the designers participating in its popular annual fall fashion show at Hillcrest Harvestfest on Saturday, Oct. 15. They are Amber Taylor, Lauren Kemp, Punkee Monkee, Linda Thomas, Trisha Timmerman, Erin Lorenzen, Missy Lipps and "Project Runway" vet Korto Momolu.

Musical acts slated for the festival include Mandy McBride, Elise Davis, John David, Jim Mize and Bonnie Montgomery.

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.
