Friday To-Do: Cool Shoes

COOL SHOES
10 p.m., Downtown Music. $5. 

In the grand tradition of localizing popular culture that's given us Little Rock Star and Belvis the Black Elvis, local promoter/roustabout TJ Deeter offers up his version of “Club MTV” (which, of course, was modeled on “American Bandstand,” which, in turn, had its own Little Rock version, “Steve's Show”). As Deeter envisions it, Cool Shoes will bring dancing, jams, live performance, art and video together in a package that, when edited down, will make for a nifty webisode for his localistmagazine.com and his homeboy Rod Bryan's anthro.tv. Sadly, Deeter will not be filling the Downtown Julie Brown role. No one will. But back to the pressing matters: Friday night is all about dancing, to jams provided by Deeter and Casey Stuart, looking at cool art by Ike Plumlee and Cameron Holifield, and head nodding to a one-song live performance by Rockst*r, who'll be unveiling a new single. Deeter didn't see a need to extend a special invitation to folks to wear their spiffiest kicks. “Everyone already wears cool shoes.”
