To do Friday: Al Green, the Village opens, B Side at the Peabody

Posted on Fri, Oct 27, 2006 at 2:48 PM

Lots of music choices and get-out-on-the-town choices tonight, starting with Al Green in concert at the Riverfest Amphitheater, with Green scheduled to go on about 9 p.m. Prelim music is supposed to start at 6 p.m., but we're guessing it will be a little later. Camden native Michael Burks is scheduled to have his blues guitar rarin' to go as one of the openers. There are plenty of $10 tickets available for the grass. Bring a blanket or two.

The Village opens, and we're not talking about M. Night Shyamalan's film. No, rather it's the newest thing on the club scene in Little Rock, a venue holding up to 1,000 folks and designed in line with such venues as the famed Norva in Norfolk, Va., taking care of that need in Little Rock for a facility between 600 and 2,000 capacity. The old Cinema 150, which sat vacant for almost three years, has been renovated into a night club. Kicking off the Village's life is Memphis alt-country-rock band Lucero, with Little Rock's Ben Nichols on vocals and guitar. Opening acts start at 9 p.m. Admission is $10.

The Peabody Hotel brings back its RiverTop Party for one fall night to celebrate the Razorback game scheduled for Little Rock on Saturday at the stadium. Tonight, Fayetteville-s popular jam-funk band B Side will perform from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Admission is $5. It should work out where Al Green wraps up about 10:15 p.m., and you can just walk up the street a few short blocks and party wituh B Side.

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
