Saturday To-Do: The Diving Bell Ball

DIVING BELL BALL.
8 p.m., Revolution. $7.

There are a number of access points to the Diving Bell Ball. It doubles as a CD release party for the local indie act Free Micah. “We Sure Do Get Around to Living” is the six-piece's debut. It's filled with big boy-girl harmonies, lush, layered instrumentation and earnest lyrics about love, God and Little Rock (what else is there, really?). It's also another chance to celebrate the latest release from Chase Pagan. “Bells & Whistles” finds the Wynne-born musician applying his sweeping falsetto to bounce-y pop arrangements, a fairly stark departure from his more somber prior work. It's not been long either since local troubadour Kevin Kerby put out his latest, “Beautiful and Bright.” It's as full of cheek and wit as anything the former Mulehead front man has released. Ditto, at least it seems, for Damn Bullets, whose aptly named “Electric Folk Boogie” remains in regular rotation. But, more than anything else, the reason these four acts are grouped together and Diamond Bear and others are sponsoring the event, is to support the Northwest Arkansas-based nonprofit Overlooked. The group raises funds for the poor and oppressed through the sale of artsy, message-driven T-shirts. They'll, of course, be on-sale at the show.
