LUCERO FAMILY PICNIC
3 p.m. First Security Amphitheatre. $27-$47.

Here's a safe bet: People will be coming into Little Rock from all over the country for the annual Lucero Family Picnic.

The picnic got its start back in 2007 up in Batesville; this year's event will truly be a family affair, as Lucero founder Ben Nichols' younger brother Jeff Nichols will be on hand for a Q&A about the movie he directed and filmed in Arkansas, a film called "Mud" that you've probably heard about.

Also, Guy Venable, father of Lucero guit-slinger Brian Venable, will perform. Rockabilly legend Wanda Jackson is going to play as well. And, of course, Lucero will headline this shindig, performing its fan-fave album "Tennessee" in its entirety, along with what's sure to be a rollicking set of numbers from the band's deep catalog.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
