I-40 revisited

Posted By on Fri, Jun 6, 2008 at 9:08 PM


This one somehow slid under our radar: Bob Dylan (above, perhaps about to accept his Pulitzer Prize) is returning to Little Rock, this time at the Riverfest Amphitheater on August 26. According to his website, tickets go on sale June 21, with a pre-sale starting June 16. No Willie Nelson on this one apparently -- there are no openers listed.

Dylan's latest, Modern Times, is well worth a listen if you haven't heard it. His live shows can be hit or miss -- when I saw him at a county fair a few years back he couldn't quite remember all the words -- but he mixes up his arrangements and keeps things interesting. Plus with such a huge back catalog to draw from you never know what he'll play next. Mark your calendars.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
