Big Red Ball Homebrew Contest comes to MacArthur Museum 


The Arkansas Symphony Orchestra's chamber orchestra performs selections from Dvorak, Vanhal and Mozart at St. James United Methodist Church as part of ASO's Stella Boyle Smith Intimate Neighborhood Concert Series, 7 p.m., $10-$29. After the show, the audience is invited to mix and mingle with the orchestra. Everyone's favorite big-voiced singer/songwriter Adam Faucett returns to White Water Tavern, 10 p.m. Local rockers The P-47s play The Joint, 9:30 p.m., $5.


Area homebrewers compete to have their beer crowned "The Official Beer of Kickball" and have it brewed and served by Stone's Throw Brewing at the Big Red Ball Homebrew Contest at the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History. Those who just want to sample the brews can pay $20 for admission and a tasting glass (or $30 for early admission, line-cutting privileges and a bigger tasting glass) and food, 7 p.m. All proceeds go to Our House. The Weekend Theater continues its run of "Blu," a play about a queer Chicana family struggling to deal with the loss of a family member to the Iraq War, 7:30 p.m., $12-$16. Psychedelic folk duo Tyrannosaurus Chicken returns to Stickyz, 9:30 p.m., $7-$10. It's salsa night at Juanita's, with instruction during the first hour, 9 p.m., $8.

Onetime Geto Boy and Rap-A-Lot hero Big Mike comes to Discovery for a show scheduled to get going around 2:30 a.m., $10-$15. Trapper the Rapper, 1504, Billy Gene Smith, gforce, Joel Allenbaugh and Sleepy Genius will also perform at the club. Despite his father's recent anti-gay comments, something tells us plenty of Arkansans will still turn out to see "Duck Dynasty's" Willie Robertson and his wife, Korie Robertson, at the Jack Stephens Center for a fundraiser for Spark of Life, a foundation that focuses on grief recovery. Nashville country musician Bobby Cool will perform and there'll be a silent auction, too, 7 p.m., $10-$100. Local hardcore favorites R.I.O.T.S. play White Water Tavern with GG Earth, 10 p.m.


Classic rocker Eddie Money will have your "Two Tickets to Paradise" at Juanita's, with Searcy's The Fable & The Fury opening, 7:30 p.m., $30 adv., $35 day of the show.
