Ride the Blues Bus to King Biscuit with the Arkansas Times!

The King Biscuit Blues Festival is calling you. It's starting up on Thursday and peaking on Saturday night with headliner Gov't Mule. Maybe the reasonable voice inside your head is saying, "But I didn't plan ahead and get a room or a camping spot, and I don't want to drive all the way over there and drive back in the wee hours. Plus, drinking goes well with the blues and sitting on a levee."

Well, the Arkansas Times has just the solution. At 9 a.m., the Arkansas Times Blues Bus departs from old Ray Winder parking lot in Little Rock and heads to the Hollywood Cafe in Robinsville, Miss., for lunch. En route, there'll be plenty of adult beverage and an on-bus performance from Bluesboy Jag. We'll be at the festival by 1 p.m. and stay through Gov't Mule. All that for just $109 via centralarkansastickets.com.

The lineup on Saturday also includes the DuWayne Burnside Band, the West Coast Blues Review with Fillmore Slim, the Ben Miller Band and God's Children.

Check out this live video of headliner Gov't Mule playing their song "Million Miles From Yesterday" at the Mountain Jam festival.

  • Come with the Arkansas Times to the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival

    After several years of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro hosting benefit concerts to raise money for the restoration of Johnny Cash's boyhood home, this year the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival debuts in Dyess just outside the Cash homeplace. And of course the Arkansas Times is chartering a bus to be there. The lineup is spectacular: Kris Kristofferson (one of the greatest songwriters of all-time easily), Rosanne Cash, Joanne Cash and Tommy Cash and Buddy Jewel.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
