Country star Toby Keith comes to War Memorial Park Golf Course Sunday, Oct. 2, with Eric Church, Sara Evans and Diamond Rio warming up the crowd. Doors open at noon, the concert starts at 12:30 and ends at the entirely respectable hour of 9 p.m. Tickets are available at zoojamtickets.com, or if you want to pay by cash, at the Little Rock Zoo box office. Tickets are $65 apiece, except for active-duty members of the military and students, who can get a ticket for $50. Proceeds benefit the Little Rock Zoo.

Here's some good news for fans of hushed, gently bearded folk-rock: Iron & Wine will play Reynolds Performance Hall at the University of Central Arkansas Sunday, Nov. 13.

Student tickets go on sale Oct. 17 and are $15. Tickets for the general public go on sale Oct. 19 and are $25. You can buy them at the Reynolds box office or online at uca.edu/publicappearances.

The good folks at the nonprofit Low Key Arts are adding another feather to the Spa City's cap with the Hot Water Hills Music & Arts Festival, scheduled for Oct. 8-9 at Hill Wheatley Plaza in downtown Hot Springs.

In addition to showcasing the work of a couple dozen visual artists, the festival includes performances from Big Smith, Ben Nichols of Lucero, Grand Marquis, Mountain Sprout and The Extraordinaires.

There will also be plenty of good old-fashioned family fun, with a pie-eating contest, dunking booth, egg tossing, a hay-bale pyramid and more. All for just $5 a day and free for kids 10 and younger. Food, beer and wine will be available.

The festivities kick off at 3 p.m. Friday, Oct. 7, and resume the next day at 11 a.m.

"Paradise 3: Purgatory," Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky's follow-up to their two previous films on the West Memphis Three, will debut internationally at the Toronto International Film Festival in September and nationally at the New York Film Festival in October. The New York Festival will be the first time the recut version screens, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which has also reported that Sheila Nevins, head of HBO's documentary division, wants a fourth "Paradise Lost."

  • 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.
