Friday To-Do: Ark. Times Rivertop Party

RIVERTOP PARTY
8 p.m., The Peabody. $5.

This Friday, we here at the Times are going up, up, up to the upper terrace of The Peabody for this week's Rivertop Party to promote our iPhone app Cocktail Compass.

Surely you've downloaded it, right?

If not, make sure you get it before the party because there'll be drink specials, including $1 beers, available for all those who show Rivertop Party bartenders their app. To further entice you, we've lined up three of our perennial favorites from the local music scene — not to mention three of the biggest giants in Arkansas music — for the night.

Epiphany and One Night Stand meld live jazz and rock with hip-hop from the eclectic emcee, Epiphany, and soul from local diva Gina Gee.

Ear Fear is the ambitious brotherly duo of Adrian and Bobby Tillman, also known, respectively, as local rap guru 607 and, well, Bobby. The guys just released their newest album, "Art Class," on their Bandcamp website.

And rounding out the bill: Tyrannosaurus Chicken, the dance floor-starting psychedelta (or — try this one on for size — "Dixiedelica") duo that gets noticeably more amazing every time I see them. And I, like so many other folks, see them every single chance I can.

Times, cheap beer, stellar music: come say hi, wontcha?
