ARKANSAS MUSIC VIDEO COMPETITION
7:30 p.m., Revolution. $10.

In conjunction with the Little Rock Film Festival, the Arkansas Music Video Competition gives top billing to the local music scene's latest obsession — locally made music videos. From 16 or so entrants, the field has been narrowed down to four (full disclosure: I was a judge). These got the most votes: Epiphany's “Can't Tell,” the Moving Front's “Zombies,” Ace Spade and the Whores of Babylon's “Ice Crystals” and Bryan Frazier's “Unwise.” A smidge of background: Epiphany's video was shot entirely in Rumba-Revolution, where the finals will be held. There are zombies in the Moving Front's “Zombies.” Ace Spade and the Whores of Babylon cook meth in a trailer B-movie-style in “Ice Crystals,” and Bryan Frazier is possibly a ghost in his video. A cocktail reception opens the evening, followed by a screening of the videos and an awards ceremony at 8:30 p.m. The finalists will then all perform short sets. Plus, a boon to any local show, rapper 607 performs, and in the headlining slot, Technosquid Eats Parliament, the long defunct Little Rock-based power pop band, reunites for a special appearance.
