8 p.m. Harding University. $20-$25.

When it comes to booking quality concerts, the college campuses of Arkansas have been killing it over the last few years. Of course, many of these performances are only open to students. It's kind of annoying when you hear about some awesome upcoming show by your favorite band of all time, but you can't go see it no matter what. Frustrating!

Anyways, the second annual First Thaw Festival at Harding University is billed as being "designed to bring music, art and film to the student body and surrounding community." Nice.

This year's festivities start on Friday night, with singer/songwriters Sara Bareilles and Katie Herzig. On Saturday, things get rolling at 11 a.m. with a bazaar and performances from Brett Vanderzee, The Shindiggers, Brianna Gaither, The Sheriffs of Nottingham and The Coasts.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
