10 p.m., Juanita's. $20.

Little Rock continues its run of landing high profile R&B crooners with Dave Hollister, who comes pretty seriously pedigreed. The Chicago native appeared on several early 2Pac cuts, like “Brenda's Got a Baby” and “Keep Ya Head Up,” but got his first break as a solo performer on the soundtrack to “Boyz N the Hood.” He subsequently landed in Teddy Riley's Blackstreet, where he appeared on songs like “Before I Let You Go” and “Booti Call,” before leaving for a solo career (pre “No Diggity”). Since then, he's released six albums of smooth soul, breaking into the R&B charts with songs like “My Favorite Girl” and “One Woman Man.” His latest album, “Witness Protection,” finds him exploring more gospel territory. A strong slate of local performers — J-One, Epiphany, Rodney Block, J. White and Terreigh Barnett — share the bill, too.

  • 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.
