Friday To-Do: RazorRock Rally

RAZOROCK RALLY
7 p.m., Riverfest Amphitheatre. Free.

Look, I'm as Hog-besotted as the next guy. I dream, often, of 12-win seasons and a 500-yard passing game. I plan my week around Saturdays. But a pep rally? Isn't that a tradition that loses its pep after high school (if not before)? Maybe that just depends on the ingredients. Friday's rally, the culmination of a week of Hog-geared boosterism in Little Rock, has some of the traditional elements: the cheerleaders and the pom squad, the live mascot and the marching band will all do their things (the band is doing a rendition of "Ring of Fire"). But then things get interesting. 10 Horse Johnson, the self-described "Ozarks-born/LA-bred/Little Rock-based country comedy band," famous locally for penning a campaign song for Dwight David Honeycutt, will debut its new Hog call, "Woo Pig Fever." After that, the Oxford American will present "A Night of Arkansas Music," with three local treasures performing: honky tonk heroes The Salty Dogs, roots-tinged singer/songwriter extraordinaire Jim Mize and the True Soul Revue, a collection of artists who recorded for erstwhile True Soul Records, Little Rock's finest soul and R&B label. Then, at 6 p.m. on Saturday, the Hogs win 70-0. Woo pig.
