Arkansas Sounds pulls in Tav Falco, Dan Hicks and Collin Raye

Delightfully weird psych-o-billy hero Tav Falco (from Gurdon), genre-defier Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks (Little Rock) and '90s country star Collin Raye are among the big names at this year's Arkansas Sounds Musical Festival, a production of the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, a department of the Central Arkansas Library System. Think of it as a music version of the Arkansas Literary Festival, which the Central Arkansas Library also puts on.

The festival runs Sept. 27-28 at the First Security Amphitheatre, the River Market Pavilions and the main branch of the Central Arkansas Library.

Other featured acts: Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase winners The Sound of the Mountain, The Smittle Band, The 1 oz. Jig, Messy Sparkles, Epiphany, War Chief, Mountain Sprout, Bonnie Montgomery and a tribute to Glen Campbell. Festival organizer John Miller said the Campbell tribute is likely to resemble last year's tributes to Levon Helm and Michael Burks, where members of some of the featured acts join together to do cover songs. Raye's likely to perform a number of Campbell songs during his shot at the festival, too, Miller said. Raye has a Campbell tribute album scheduled for release later this year.

Fans of Falco should circle Thursday, Sept. 26 on their calendar, too. He'll be reading from "Ghosts Behind the Sun: Splendor, Enigma & Death: Mondo Memphis Vol. 1," his underground history of Memphis, at 6 p.m. at the Main Library's Darragh Center. Miller said it's a hugely engrossing book, and that Falco will incorporate video and stories that didn't make the book in his presentation.
