Austin's Vallejo blends modern rock and Latin percussion at Sticky Fingerz, 9:30 p.m., $7; Badhand opens.

ImprovLittleRock returns to the Public Theatre, looking for audience suggestions, 10 p.m., $8 (same time, price and place on Saturday, too). The comedy “Sordid Lives” enters its last weekend at the Weekend Theater, 7:30 p.m., $10-$14.


Gunning for the “most demented cover act in all the South” crown, the Frontier Circus plays its second gig at White Water Tavern, with support from the Winston Family Orchestra, 9 p.m., $5. Rockabilly Hall of Famers Sonny Burgess and the Pacers return to the Legion Event Center, 8 p.m., $6. Perhaps Little Rock's finest indie act, The See, plays a cheap show at the Town Pump, with front man Joe Yoder opening with solo material, 10 p.m., $3. Local cover favorites The Gettys are at West End, 9 p.m., $5. If you don't have a ticket to see Arkansas's greatest musical contribution to the '70s, Black Oak Arkansas, at Denton's, you're out of luck; the concert's sold out.

  • 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.
