In Brief, Jan. 21-23 


The Rep's annual “Startin' Early, Staying Late” fund-raiser precedes the theater's fancy-schmancy Saturday night “Saints and Sinners Ball” and aims for a different audience — those who want to support the city's only professional theater company, but can't afford a $300 ticket or don't want to don black tie. At “Startin' Early” at the Governor's Mansion, a $50 ticket scores you hors d'oeuvres, an open bar and music from the Bob Boyd Sounds and an opportunity to bid on a silent auction. Dress is cocktail, 6:30 p.m. Little Rock's finest jazz act, the Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio, does its monthly night of double duty, starting, as usual, at the Capital Bar and Grill, 5 p.m., and then shifting to the Afterthought, 8 p.m., $5. Party-style cover band Mr. Lucky returns to Cajun's Wharf, 9:30 p.m., $5. Revolution hosts a night of local hard-edged rock at Revolution with Calling Drake, Iron Ton and Eddy and the Defiantz, 9 p.m., $5. At SpeakEasy, local pianist and vocalist John Willis gets an assist from Hanky Pank, 8 p.m., free.


Murfreesboro rockers and Little Rock favorites Glossary return to White Water after what's been, for them at least, a long absence. Birmingham's Vulture Whale shares the bill, 10 p.m., $6. At Vino's, Fayetteville standouts David Family Pegasus perform deeply infectious songs about the adventures of King David, a refugee of a (made-up) Bible-themed video game. With visuals! Matt Anders and Megan Parochka open, 8 p.m. At Revolution, throwback metal act Four on the Floor co-headlines with local alt-country band the Good Time Ramblers; the Go-Go Revolution Girls will be out, too, 9 p.m. The always-engaging indie three-piece Winston Family Orchestra offers a free show at Satellite, 9 p.m. free. At the Weekend Theater, the comedy “Sordid Lives” continues, 7:30 p.m., $10-$14. The Arkansas Children's Theatre debuts a stage adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's “Little Women,” 7 p.m., $11-$14.


The eight-piece Meshugga Klezmer Band returns to the Afterthought for a rare performance, 8 p.m., $8. Out at Denton's Trotline in Benton, Big John Miller belts out soul hits with support from his band, 8 p.m., free. Local singer/songwriters and roommates Bonnie Montgomery and Mandy McBryde share the stage at a free show at the Town Pump, 9 p.m.

    Out here in flyover country, you can't hardly go by the feed store without running into a reporter doing one of those Wisdom of the Heartland stories.
  • Not Whitewater

    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.
