THURSDAY 10/29

Former members of Taking Back Sunday soldier on in Straylight Run, a Long Island-based emo-ish, indie-rock trio headlining at Revolution, with the Dangerous Summer and Mansions opening, 7 p.m., $12 adv., $15 d.o.s. From Asheville, N.C., Woody Pines specializes in a cheeky brand of old-time at White Water Tavern, 10 p.m., $5. The UALR Percussion Ensemble offers arrangements of Bela Fleck and Radiohead songs at the Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall, 7:30 p.m., $10. Cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” begins a three-night stand at Market Street Cinema, with showings at 7:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m., $10 (which also gets you a “participation kit”).

 

FRIDAY 10/30

In case you skipped past the front part of the paper to get here, the internationally beloved dance punk trio Gossip is playing a homecoming show at Vino's, $15 adv., $20 d.o.s. Local jazz standout Rodney Block blows his trumpet at the Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7.

 

SATURDAY 10/31

After splitting with lead singer Matt Joyce, the Gettys unveil a new front man at Sticky Fingerz, where there'll also be a costume contest for $500 in cash and prizes, 9:30 p.m., $6 (for Sticky Fingerz only) or $10 (for access to Revolution, too). At Revolution, local crooner Cody Belew and his band the Mercers share the bill with the Lucious Spiller Band, which is doing only Prince covers starting at 11 p.m., $6 or $10 (same deal as above). At Cajun's, Chucky P DJs the bar's annual costume contest, with $500 going to first place and cash prizes for runners up, too, 8 p.m., $10. Playmate Erin Leigh and bands McCuin and Eden Crow provide the entertainment at Juanita's Vampire's Ball, where, no surprise, there's a costume contest, 9 p.m., $13 adv., $17 d.o.s. The Afterthought wants folks to dress up, too; the B-Flats (AKA, the Doctor Band) provide the entertainment, 9 p.m., $7. In Conway at the Bear's Den, a host of UCA professors join to play music and raise money for the literary journal Exquisite Corpse (which is published by the UCA writing department). The ad hoc groups play under names like the Amsterdamned, Stroke Newington and the Conway Twitties, 8 p.m., $5. Late night at Discovery, folks seem to turn up the raunch with their costumes. Bill Halliquist mans the disco, while Balance works the lobby, midnight, $10.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown
