  • BELA FLECK: Will perform at the Harvest Music Festival.

Is there a better way to go to a music festival than by riding a bus with a keg and live entertainment? Probably not, but if you're still not sold, just ask any of the 150-plus folks who rode along with the Arkansas Times to the Johnny Cash Music Festival.

Once again, the Times will be taking busloads of blues-lovers to the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena. And once again, it's a hell of a bargain, at $99 a person for round-trip transportation, free booze and entertainment on the bus, 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, David "Honeyboy" Edwards, Tommy Castro, the Stax Review with Eddie Floyd, Duck Dunn and Steve Cropper, plus many more.

Call 375-2985 to order tickets, or send check or money order to: Arkansas Times Blues Bus, Box 34010, Little Rock, AR 72203.

The lineup for the Harvest Music Festival, the annual music and camping festival on Mulberry Mountain near Ozark, has been announced. It's as jam-y and folk-tastic as you'd expect. For the second year in a row, Colorado newgrass quartet Yonder Mountain String Band hosts and headlines. Among those who'll be performing are Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Railroad Earth, Split Lip Rayfield, The Travelin' McCourys, Reckless Kelly, Todd Snider, James McMurtry, Sara Watkins, Great American Taxi and Dirtfoot.

The festival runs from Oct. 13-16 this year. Tickets, currently on-sale for $140, are available at yonderharvestfestival.com.

Bobby, AKA as one half of the local duo Ear Fear with his brother 607, has a new release available. It's called "Its Jus Bobby" and available via itsjustbobby.bandcamp.com to stream or purchase for $5.

  • Constituents go Cotton pickin' at Springdale town hall

    Sen. Tom Cotton, cordial to a fault, appeared before a capacity crowd at the 2,200 seat Pat Walker Performing Arts Center at Springdale High tonight to a mixed chorus of clapping and boos. Other than polite applause when he introduced his mom and dad and a still moment as he led the crowd in a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance — his night didn't get much better from there.
  • Stand up for Little Rock

    If Little Rock deteriorates because of substandard schools, there will be blame aplenty to share. But some elected leaders deserve special mention.
  • Hating the media

    Presidents, with the exception of George Washington, never found much joy with the media, although Donald Trump is the first to use the scarily freighted words "enemies of the people."
  • What's new and coming soon to Argenta

    A riverfront hotel, new residential development, food, drink and more.
  • Downtown Little Rock and North Little Rock are back in business

    Main Street and beyond bustles.
