DIRTY DOZEN BRASS BAND
7 p.m., Simon Park, Conway. Free.

This Crescent City swamp-funk band is no stranger to Central Arkansas, blazing up the interstate since 1977. You can count on the brass septet to buck jump through town every couple years or so, most recently playing Sticky Fingerz back in June. The Dirty Dozen Brass Band has gone from a second-line Crescent City outfit to a house band, named after their Dirty Dozen Social and Pleasure Club, to one of the most influential troupes to ever spread the good news of NOLA. And spread it they do. This week sees the band take up a brief artists-in-residency position at UCA on Thursday before playing a free show in Simon Park alongside the school's marching band as part of Conway's annual ArtsFest.
