Eric Sommer, one of the most mind-blowing acoustic guitarists in recent memory (seriously), comes to Vino's alongside Fort Smith blues rockers Cloud 9 and anthemic indie rockers Ellison's Cage, 8 p.m., $6.

Dreadlocked Hendrix alum Graham Wilkinson and his band, the Underground Township, play taut, groovy Americana for the crowd at White Water Tavern, 10 p.m.

In Hot Springs, Maxine's Pub brings the hook-a-minute throwback dance sounds of Sugar & Gold and electroboogie from the Of Montreal-remixing Yip Deceiver, 8 p.m., $3.

Dr. Rex Bell rallies his lineup of local musicians for a night of jazz at The Afterthought, 8 p.m., $5.

The jazz keeps rolling downtown, as well, with the guitar sounds of the Ted Ludwig Trio at Capitol Bar and Grill, 5 p.m., and pianist Jim Dickerson holding down Sonny Williams' Steak Room, 7 p.m.

"A Raisin in the Sun"
returns for another weekend at The Rep, 7 p.m., $25-$40.

And at Hendrix College, Matthew Pitt, whose new collection of short stories has been garnering praise as of late, speaks in the Murphy Seminar Room, 1:15 p.m.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
