Friday To-Do: KABF Rent Party

KABF RENT PARTY
3 p.m., Parrot Beach Cafe. $5 suggested donation.

You may have heard, or read if you picked up last week's issue of the Times, that KABF is in a helluva way. We'll leave the specifics to the front pages of the paper; just know that Little Rock's long-standing, non-corporate voice for community radio and eclectic music needs a fast infusion of money to keep the doors open and its frequency alive. Thankfully, the station has a strong base of supporters who also know how to bring out a crowd, including local veterans Amy Garland and Brent Labeau, who team up for a duo set, religious revisionists Gospel Outlaws, blues act The Cruize Brothers, and many more to be announced. Thrillingly, as always, living blues legend Cedell Davis returns to town with backing band, Brethren. They're asking for a $5 suggested donation, but we suspect that's just them being humble: Peel off a couple extra bills for the station.
