JUNETEENTH POWER JAM
3 p.m., Riverfest Amphitheatre. $20-$30 d.o.s.

Last week, Arkansas Times media columnist David Koon outlined the problems with Power 92's massive annual Juneteenth concert, as described in the documentary “The Truth Behind Juneteenth: A Paradox of Freedom.” The history and relevance of Juneteenth are barely mentioned. The station, which makes a big hoo-rah about all that it donates to the Watershed Project, pockets huge profits, while forcing local acts to pay exorbitant fees to play. But! Lil Mama's lip gloss will be popping, Mike Jones will be repeating his name, Trey Songz will be crooning, salaciously, and dozens of other acts whose names you might not know, but whose songs you probably do, will be putting it down, so look for another sell-out.
