In Brief, Sept. 17 

THURSDAY 9/17

A little while back, Texas singer/songwriters Adam Carroll and Owen Temple put out a tribute to Gary Floater, a made-up country icon whose songs epitomized everything that's wrong with Nashville. It was fiercely funny and smart. The pair returns to White Water with Mark Jungers, another popular Texas songwriter and collaborator, in tow, 9 p.m., $5. Record label bigwigs are rumored to be headed to Revolution to see local country standout Ryan Couron, 9:30 p.m., $5. At Sticky Fingerz, Atlanta-based regulars Gringo Star play garage pop with female-fronted rock trio Nico Vega opening, 9 p.m., $8 adv., $10 d.o.s. Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio's monthly double-bill begins at the Capital Bar, 5 p.m., free, and ends at the Afterthought, 8:30 p.m., $5. The Old Statehouse Museum hosts its regular Bands on the Bricks outdoor concert with Fayetteville folk-rock act Fifteen Keys, 5:30 p.m., free. Filmmaker Mike Brune screens his gory romp, “Blood Car,” at UCA's Snow Fine Arts Center, 7:30 p.m., free. The popular jukebox musical “Always … Patsy Cline” continues at the Rep through the weekend, 8 p.m., $20-$35.

 

FRIDAY 9/18

Hayes Carll's lead guitarist Travis Linville returns solo to White Water, 9 p.m., $5. The Arkansas Queen hosts a blues and reggae cruise featuring DJ Paul, Sir Lloyd Husky, Ras Levi and K-One, 10 p.m., $22 (reservations). Eight-piece funk-soul act Josh Weather and the True Endeavors comes to Maxine's, 9 p.m., $5. Thornton Wilder's “Our Town” continues its run at the Weekend Theater, 7:30 p.m., $10-$14.

 

SATURDAY 9/19

Velvet Kente is among the acts helping the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center celebrate its one-year anniversary; the Parkview Players will offer living history presentations as well, 10 a.m., free. There'll be bachata, cumbia, merengue and reggaeton jams coming out of the Arkansas Queen's Latino Tropicana Cruise, 10 p.m., $22 adv., $25 d.o.s. Fayetteville's David's Pegasus offer an engaging, oddball multimedia indie rock show that merges Biblical lore and 8-bit videogames at Maxine's, 9 p.m., $5; with After the Crash, too.

 

SUNDAY 9/20

Jackson, Miss.-based Ballet Magnificat offers a free performance at the Summit Church in North Little Rock, 7 p.m., free.

  • World leaders set to meet in Little Rock on resource access and sustainable development

    Next week a series of meetings on the use of technology to tackle global problems will be held in Little Rock by Club de Madrid — a coalition of more than 100 former democratic former presidents and prime ministers from around the world — and the P80 Group, a coalition of large public pension and sovereign wealth funds founded by Prince Charles to combat climate change. The conference will discuss deploying existing technologies to increase access to food, water, energy, clean environment, and medical care.
  • Rapert compares Bill Clinton to Orval Faubus

    Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway)  was on "Capitol View" on KARK, Channel 4, this morning, and among other things that will likely inspire you to yell at your computer screen, he said he expects someone in the legislature to file a bill to do ... something about changing the name of the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport.
  • Fake news

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.
  • Reality TV prez

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
