MUSICFEST EL DORADO
5 p.m. Downtown El Dorado. $15-$20.

There probably aren't too many other music festivals where you could see a lineup as diverse as the one featured at this year's MusicFest El Dorado. It's all over the map.

You've got your R&B, your country, your rap, your rock and/or roll, your blues, your Southern rock, your post-grunge, your elementary and middle school choirs, your "Full On" rock, your singer/songwriters, your high school orchestras and your high school jazz bands. What say you, Coachella? Bonaroo? Lollapalooza? Whatchama-have-you? Your Pitchfork-approved indie pabulum seems pretty conventional when compared to MusicFest El Dorado.

The festival hosts headliners Boyz II Men, Tone Loc and Devon Allman's Honeytribe (Friday) and Sawyer Brown, The Robert Fortune Band and James Otto (Saturday). Saturday's good times get rolling at 10 a.m.
