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.
