Saturday To-Do: 'A Dandy Day at the Park'

Posted By on Fri, May 6, 2011 at 11:49 AM


2 p.m., North Shore River Walk, NLR. $15 adv., $20 d.o.s.

How's this for an experiment: For $15, you get a family-friendly day busting at the seams with Southern rock, fried food, cheap beer and a playground where you can drop off the kids for a few hours while you take in, well, a day of cheap beer, fried food and Southern rock. Consider it a warm-up session for Riverfest, if you will.

Music kicks off at 4 p.m. with 2011 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase champs Tyrannosaurus Chicken, local debauchery rockers Sweet Eagle, Memphis outlaw rockers Joecephus & the George Jonestown Massacre, Crowes-lovin' Jonesboro outfit Zach Williams & the Reformation, young blues guitar wunderkind Wes Jeans, prolifically-touring roots rockers Judge Parker and, headlining, the namesake of the event: Jim Dandy and his Southern cock-rock 'n' rollers, Black Oak Arkansas (more on that here).

With organizers aiming to make this the first of many regularly scheduled all-day events, it's the Little Event That Could. Seeing how Central Arkansas is sorely lacking in things like this, we're hoping it'll be the Big Series That Does. And for the brave, the festivities continue into the late night at Midtown Billiards. Advance tickets and more information available at Ankle-biters 10 and under get in free.
