ARKANSAS DELTA ROCKABILLY FESTIVAL
11 a.m. Historic Downtown Helena. $20.

Here's a lot of rock 'n' roll bang for your buck: The Arkansas Delta Rockabilly Festival is a full day of music, featuring some truly legendary performers.

Stan Perkins — son of Carl and a fantastic guitarist in his own right — will be performing with drummer D.J. Fontana, who played for 15 years with Elvis Presley, including numerous hit recordings. They'll be backed up by The Legendary Pacers (who'll be performing with the great Sonny Burgess, as well).

Saxophonist Ace Cannon — who Sun Records founder Sam Phillips called "the greatest saxophone player who ever lived" — will perform with his band. The day wraps up with the country sounds of Asleep at the Wheel and The Kentucky Headhunters.

    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.
