ae_news1-1.jpg

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."

    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.

  • 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.
