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.
