Saturday To-Do: Pop the Top Fest

School Boy Humor.

5 p.m., Vino's. $10.

I know what hundreds of angst-y, Hot Topic-wearing teen-agers are doing on Saturday. They'll be lining up on the sidewalk on the corner of Seventh and Chester to get in to see Central Arkansas's most popular young, emo-ish rock bands. It'll be a homecoming for the headliners. Jacksonville's PMtoday, anchored by brothers Ryan, Connor and Cuinn Brogan, recently signed to Oregon-based indie label Rise Records. They're set to record in September in advance of a projected 2010 release. In the meantime, they're likely to continue a regime that seems to be the norm of young bands of their ilk — nonstop touring. That's certainly the standard for Little Rock's School Boy Humor, a poppy four-piece from Little Rock that released its debut on Vagrant Records in February. They've since pretty much lived on the road. Look for a young crowd who knows the words to help welcome them home. Don't Call Me Shirley, the Downtown Fiction, Select Start, Box Wine, Harp and Lyre  and Your Best Friend also perform.

    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.

    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.
