No more partying down by the river... 

VENUS MISSION
9 p.m., The Peabody. $5.

The RiverTop Party finale signals the crest of summer, when it's too hot to hang out at night down by the river. The Peabody's send-off, Venus Mission — “the hottest band between Memphis and the Sun” — might be the most popular touring act to come regularly to Little Rock. The seven-piece includes three miniskirt-clad vocalists, a drummer, bassist, guitarist and keytarist. Their repertoire spans the last 30 years, encompassing everything from disco to contemporary pop, but with, as the band's attire suggests, a focus on the music of the '80s. This year's parties have drawn crowds of 800, according to the Peabody. Looking to build on that success, the hotel is considering adding a fall series, with parties in October leading up to its second annual Boo Bash on Friday, Oct. 30. As usual, admission is free prior to 9 p.m.
