DJ Killah Cam(eron Holifield) is a vampire. Truly.


At Revolution, “Rock All-Stars” brings together a diverse line-up of four of Central Arkansas's hardest partying and most popular acts, all of which specialize in some variety of rock: Bar rockers Go Fast, blues rockers Jeff Coleman and the Feeders, roots-rockers the Good Time Ramblers and hard rockers Four on the Floor. It's bound to be packed, 8 p.m., $8 (open to 18 and up).

Cameron Holifield's video art instal-lations have been a regular part of Cool Shoes for months; at Satellite, he branches out into DJing. Look for an eclectic offering with some chopping and screwing, 9 p.m., free.

At White Water, Sideshow Tragedy, from Austin, Texas, plays propulsive folk-rock and sings about hard livin', 10 p.m., $5.

There will be impromptu Shakespeare reading and sword fights at "The Bard's Birthday Bash!" at Starving Artist Cafe, a fundraiser/party for the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre (tickets now onsale). The Boondogs provide the entertainment, 9 p.m., $20.


At Capitol Keyboard on Chenal, James Leary, a Little Rock born bassist and member of the Count Basie Orchestra, teams with local musicians for a benefit for the Jazz Heritage Foundation of Arkansas, 7:30 p.m., $20 adv., $25 d.o.s.

The Rodeo in the Rock, Little Rock's annual gay rodeo, gets underway (pre-rodeo party festivities started on Thursday; see for a fuller schedule) at the State Fairground, 9 a.m.

The Weekend Theater's annual gala, which includes a silent auction and an announcement of the theater's 2009-10 season, happens at the Weekend Theater, 6:30 p.m., $50.

The Twisters, now 3-0, take on Tennessee Valley at Alltel, 7:05 p.m., $11-$28.

In a rare performance, the Meshugga Klezmer Band mixes klezmer-ized versions of songs you know with originals at the Afterthought, 8 p.m., $8.
