Weekend: The Smittle Band, Lyrics Born, "Dinner for Change: An Evening with the Arkansas Times"

Posted By on Fri, Apr 15, 2011 at 10:30 AM

FRIDAY 4/15

Uber-poppy indie act The Blue Party visits Town Pump, 10 p.m.

"The Last Night of Ballyhoo" returns for its second week at The Weekend Theater, 7:30 p.m., $14.

The Smittle Band, those whip-tight folk-jazzers, head to Thirst n'Howl at 9 p.m.

Hungry? The annual Cook's Tour returns for another year, offering house tours and signature dishes from local chefs in the Chenal district, 1 p.m., $20 adv., $25 d.o.e.

And, at Christ Episcopal Church, the Root Cafe teams up with us here at the Times for "Dinner for Change: An Evening With the Arkansas Times," a local foods dinner with publisher/founder Alan Leveritt and associate editor Lindsey Millar discussing the past, present and future of the best alt-weekly in the universe, 6 p.m., $15 or a pint jar of change.


SATURDAY 4/16

In Maumelle, Lucky's Sports Bar and Grill offers the sly, sharp songs of Angelyn Jolly, 8 p.m.

Cody Belew visits Cajun's Wharf to continue his unofficial "farewell tour" before his move to Nashville, 9 p.m., $5.

Underground hip-hop makes an appreciated return to Stickyz when the literate, adventurous West coast rapper Lyrics Born visits, 9 p.m., $10.

And Hot Springs offers two amazing shows for the "Derby Day" crowds: Folk-punk cabaret act Hellblinki and mountain music from Legendary Shack Shakers spin-off The Dirt Daubers come to Low Key Arts, 9 p.m., $5.

And, down the road, singer/songwriter Kevin Gordon (whose songs have been recorded by Keith Richards, Levon Helm, Lucinda Williams and Irma Thomas) plays a rare show with a full band at Maxine's, 8 p.m., $8.
