FRIDAY 9/30

If your ears are itching for some jammy goodness, Maxine's has the cure: 1 Oz. Jig at 8 p.m., $5.

There will be beer, food, a silent art auction and live music from Chase Pagan, Isaac Alexander, Bear Colony, and No Moon. Canned goods are worth $1 apiece toward entry fee. Dreamland Ballroom, 7 p.m., $5 entry, $20 entry and free beer.

If you were planning to catch Arkansas TheatreWorks' production of "Stage Struck" at Central Theatre in Hot Springs, this weekend is your last chance. The play runs Friday and Saturday night at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m., $15-$25.
