Two of the pop music world's biggest names are headlining a rally for the West Memphis Three at the end of the month in Little Rock. Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder and The Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines are coming to the Quapaw Quarter United Methodist Church on Saturday, Aug. 28. Wednesday, those on the WM3 supporter e-mail list will get a link to the ticket vendor. If any tickets remain early next week, they'll be made available to the general public.

General admission is $95 and VIP is $500. The church holds just under 700. A message from a member of Arkansas Take Action, the group that helped wrangle this event: Don't call Quapaw Quarter UMC to ask about tickets. The church doesn't have anything to with ticket sales.

Our annual Toast of the Town readers' poll is now live at arktimes.com/toastofthetown10. For this second annual edition, you can cast votes for categories like the best bar, the best bartender, the best martini, the coldest beer and the best local brewery, in the Little Rock area and beyond.

Voting is open until Sept. 13. The results will be announced Oct. 14. As usual, you can only vote once per IP address.

Director Tony Scott ("Top Gun," "Days of Thunder") is considering directing "The Associate," John Grisham's 2009 legal thriller. The book's already been adapted by William Monahan ("The Departed") and actor Shia LaBeouf has long been signed up to star.

Between 1993 and 2004, eight of Grisham's books were adapted for the big screen, but none of his last 11 has made it to the big screen.

Mulehead, Little Rock's favorite act in the late '90s and early aughts, is reuniting for a two-night stand at White Water on Aug. 28-29. The reunion almost happened for Riverfest, but then Mulehead got bumped for Uncle Kracker!

Advance $10 tickets are available via lastchancerecords.com. Be warned: These will sell out.

  • In the margins

    A rediscovered violin concerto brings an oft-forgotten composer into the limelight.
  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
