A & E news, Aug. 28 

Word around the Little Rock fashion community is that “Project Runway” contestant and Mabelvale resident Korto Momolu has been steadily buying fabric in recent weeks, leading to speculation that she's readying for Fashion Week in New York, Sept. 5-12, where the reality show's final three contestants face off. Or Momolu could simply be readying a new collection for the fashion show at Hillcrest HarvestFest, in which she's committed to participating.

 

Downtown venue Revolution has updated its website, rumbarevolution.com, to add an impressive upcoming slate. Here's the cream of the crop: Leon Russell on Sept. 21, Paul Thorn on Sept. 25, Junior Brown on Oct. 19 and Wolf Parade on Nov. 16.

 

Public Enemy co-founder and leader Chuck D will speak at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 25, at Robinson Center Music Hall as part of the Clinton School of Public Service lecture series. The bio the school released describes him as “a prominent supporter of music on the Internet” and the founder of rapstation.com, “a site dedicated to empowering rap artists with the knowledge to turn their craft into a viable living,” so we're guessing the focus is going to tilt toward digital media.

 

Coming Oct. 14 on Compadre Records, “Johnny Cash Remixed,” an album that pairs 20 Sun-era Cash tracks — like “Get Rhythm,” “Big River” and “I Walk the Line” — with producers from around the world. Johnny and June's son John Carter Cash is producing with Snoop Dogg and Beyonce's dad. Sample the first leaked single, “Sugartime,” a remix by Kennedy, described in promo material as “a cornerstone in the new UK music movement called DirtyPop.” Go to Rock Candy to hear the track.

 

Exciting news out of Conway: Dan Penn, the architect of some of the greatest soul songs of all time, will play a free show at Hendrix's Cabe Theater on Tuesday, Sept. 16. Known for penning songs like “Do Right Woman Do Right Man,” “I'm Your Puppet” and “The Dark End of the Street,” Penn comes to Arkansas for the first time as a performer. Bobby Emmons, who played in the original Bill Black Combo as a teen-ager and performed as part of the band that supported Elvis during his '68 comeback special, will accompany on keyboard. Visit Rock Candy to stream Penn staples.

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
