FRIDAY 12/11

The third edition of “Winter Whiteout” at Revolution brings together familiar elements — breakbeat hero DJ Icey, local dudes Jared Lawler, Michael Shane, Sleepy Genius, Justin Ewell and Jason D. (together doing a five-man “tag” set), plus the Revolution Girls, 9 p.m., $10 adv., $15 d.o.s.

At Downtown Music, drum and bass duo Androids of Ex-Lovers celebrate the release of their new CD, 8 p.m., $6.

Singer/songwriter Rena Wren plays Satellite, 9 p.m., free.

At the Afterthought, jazz trumpet standout Rodney Block shares the stage with his band, the Real Music Lovers, 9 p.m., $7.

At the Town Pump, the Pope County Bootleggers play country rock, 9 p.m., free.

Conway's Children's Theatre To Go unveils its latest original production, “The Great Santa Claus Reindeer Roundup,” at Reynolds Performance Hall at UCA, 7 p.m., $20-$35.

And the drama, “The Last White Class,” continues at the Weekend Theater, 7:30 p.m., $10-$14.

SATURDAY 12/12

Memphis' Jason D. Williams' speedy hands on the piano featured in the film “Great Balls of Fire.” He comes to Revolution still doing something like a Killer tribute; look for all sorts of piano wildness and old school boogie and rock 'n' roll tunes, 9 p.m., $20.

Surely Arkansas's finest living songwriter, Jim Mize, returns to White Water Tavern, 10 p.m., $5.

 At the Wesley United Methodist Church in Conway, filmmaker and friend of the Times Gerry Bruno (the director of our first place entry to the 48-Hour Film Festival) directs the Conway Dinner Theatre in “A Christmas Carol.”
