Al Green, Arkansas's — and arguably the world's — greatest soul man, makes a rare appearance in Little Rock at the Statehouse Convention Center, 6 p.m. The only rub? It'll cost you $250. The evening of "supper and soul" is a benefit for Arkansas Baptist's Capital Campaign Fund.

At White Water Tavern, The Libras play all your favorite covers in celebration of the 60th birthday of the bar's long-time owner, Larry "Goose" Garrison, 8:30 p.m., free.

At Hendrix College's Reves Recital Hall, renowned short-short story writer and Proust translator Lydia Davis offers a lecture on humor, 7:30 p.m., free.

Get a jump on Halloween fun by bringing the fam to the Big BOO!-seum Bash events at the Old State House, the Historic Arkansas Museum, the Central High School Historic Site, the Clinton Presidential Library, the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History, the Heifer Village and the Mosaic Templars Cultural Center and EMOBA, 6 p.m.-8:30 p.m., free.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    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.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
