9 p.m. Downtown Music Hall. $5.

Damn. This qualifies as a bona fide "End of an Era" To-Do: Cool Shoes will no longer be a thing in Little Rock (Cool Shoes Fayetteville will continue to host monthly shows, though).

From the Cool Shoes Facebook: "When we started this party over 4 years ago, we didn't know what would come of it. A dance party at a metal venue in Arkansas? It could've been a disaster but it worked. We've packed the place out with 500+ sweaty kids with lines wrapping around the block, brought in national headliners, and even had our own stage at RiverFest."

This farewell show includes DJs Wolf-e-Wolf, Kichen and Raphe.
