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.

  • Executionpalooza

    Appearances count. I was struck by a single sentence over the weekend in a full page of coverage in The New York Times devoted to the killing spree in Arkansas, beginning with a front-page account of the recent flurry of legal filings on pending executions and continuing inside with an interview with Damien Echols, the former death row inmate.
  • Art bull

    "God, I hate art," my late friend The Doctor used to say.
  • Not justice

    The strongest, most enduring calls for the death penalty come from those who feel deeply the moral righteousness of "eye-for-an-eye" justice, or retribution. From the depths of pain and the heights of moral offense comes the cry, "The suffering you cause is the suffering you shall receive!" From the true moral insight that punishment should fit the crime, cool logic concludes, "Killers should be killed." Yet I say: retribution yes; death penalty no.
  • Judge Griffen writes about morality, Christian values and executions

    Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen, who blogs at Justice is a verb!, sends along a new post this morning.
  • The Ledell Lee execution thread

    Arkansas Times contributor Jacob Rosenberg is at the Cummins Unit in Grady filing dispatches tonight in advance of the expected execution of Ledell Lee, who was sentenced to death for the Feb. 9, 1993, murder of Debra Reese, 26, who was beaten to death in the bedroom of her home in Jacksonville.
