KEITH SWEAT
7:30 p.m., Riverfest Amphitheatre. $35-$75

Riverfest Amphitheatre hosts a triptych of '90s R&B stars on Saturday, the latest course served up to satiate Little Rock's bottomless appetite for throwback bump 'n' grind acts. New Jack swinger Keith Sweat has been a fixture on the R&B charts with 15 platinum albums on his wall and a handful of instantly-recognizable tracks like 1996's "Twisted," the old-school mega-hit, "I Want Her," and his paean to eternal love (and doin' it) which provides the tour its name, "Make it Last Forever." He's joined by Montell Jordan, the brain behind the Slick Rick-ribbing, timeless party-starter, "This Is How We Do It," and Next, the Minneapolis one-hit wonders who were responsible for keeping their big hit, "Too Close," in everyone's ears during the spring of 1998.
