Friday: Riverfest Arkansas Tent

The Arkansas Tent (again sponsored by Arkansas Times) is back for its third year, holding within it a range of local sounds from gospel to country to shredding bar rock. The Men of Praise & The United Voices (6:30 p.m.) featuring Friendly Womack — yep, that's Bobby's brother — lead off on Friday. It starts the festival off with an opening prayer, so to speak.

They're followed by Kemistri featuring Nikki Parish (6:30 p.m.), a seven-piece nu-R&B outfit fronted by a local R&B diva with as good of a set of pipes as you'll find all weekend.

Headlining on Friday is Michael Burks (9:30 p.m.), the Camden-raised “Iron Man” himself, who shreds the blues in an inimitable, untamed style. One part Albert Collins, one part Slash, Burks' world-traveled guitar handiwork has earned him a spot as one of the most imposing figures in contemporary blues.

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
