ANTHONY DAVID
10 p.m., Revolution. $20.

Continuing an impressive streak of attracting neo-soul talent, Little Rock gets another potentially rising star on Friday. Anthony David, from Atlanta, comes to town co-signed by India-Arie, whose Soulbird imprint (distributed by Universal Republic) released his “Acey Deucy” last year. Ironically, it was David who encouraged his longtime friend Arie to get started performing professionally and even bankrolled some of her early sessions with his rent money. Karma seems to be coming round. David was nominated for a Grammy this year for the single “A Part of My Life.” His “Bill Withers meets Mos Def” sound, as Arie has described it, should bring out the crowds in droves. Particularly since it's also a joint birthday party for local trumpet standout Rodney Block and One Stone front man Christopher Bowen, who'll also perform.

  • 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.
