Taylor Swift to Verizon this October 

Taylor Swift, the teenybopper-done-good is bringing her "Speak Now" tour to Little Rock on Tuesday, October 4. Christian rockers Needtobreathe open the night. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 8, at 10 a.m. $27-$71.50.

Bob Dorough, the geek-jazz icon and man behind the timeless music of "Schoolhouse Rock!" will be playing, now, three nights in a row in Little Rock this month. Already slated for a Monday night engagement at The Afterthought on April 18, Bob Dorough will perform April 16-17 at the Wildwood Park for the Arts for their annual "Blooms!" festival.

Also performing: The Muses, Lark in the Morning, the Dave Rogers Trio and Forté, the ASO's Youth Ensemble.

This year, Magic Springs, the water and theme park is ratcheting it up with an admittedly tighter-than-anticipated lineup. Highlights include Blake Shelton, who joins Christina Aguilera, Cee-Lo Green and Maroon 5's Adam Levine on the judge's panel for NBC's new reality talent show, 'The Voice;' Joan Jett & the Blackhearts who commemorate the 30th anniversary of their signature song, "I Love Rock and Roll"; and the incredibly resilient modern rockers 3 Doors Down, who release their first new album in three years the week before their Hot Springs engagement. The season kicks off on May 28 with country kicker Easton Corbin.

Starting last week, local and area Walgreens will offer advance three-day passes to this year's Riverfest at $15 a pop—half off of the $30 admission at the gate. A list of participating Walgreens locations are available at riverfestarkansas.com. This is, of course, a "while supplies last" sort of thing. The festival goes down Memorial Day weekend, May 27-29.

Also in Riverfest news: the festival is dropping the long-time "button as ticket" tradition in favor of harder-to-trade, harder-to-poke-people-with wristbands.

And don't forget: Rock Candy is looking for your best cover/karaoke/dance interpretation/music video/musique concrete treatment of a Foo Fighters song. In exchange, we've got a handful of tickets to the band's May 18 concert at Verizon Arena. We'll accept submissions, in just about any digital form.
