In Brief, Oct. 8 

THURSDAY 10/8

Searcy native Sean Williams fronts the Nobility, one of Nashville's finest pop acts. He and Little Rock pop kingpin Isaac Alexander have collaborated since early in college. They play a rare acoustic set early at the House, 8 p.m., free. Free Micah specializes in angst-y indie-pop, full of boy-girl harmonies and folk flourish. The local rockers share a bill at Sticky Fingerz with Austin indie act the Rocketboys and big “Bottle Rocket” fans Dignan, 9:30 p.m., $5. At the Afterthought's regular jazz night, the two Bills, Thurman and Nesbitt, play hot club and gypsy jazz, 8 p.m., $5. Tragikly White plays songs you know and, more often than not, can dance to, at Cajun's, 9 p.m., $5.

 

FRIDAY 10/9

Reigning Musicians Showcase winner Velvet Kente's concert at White Water doubles as a birthday party for front man joshua; Minneapolis' Caroline Smith and the Goodnight Sleeps open with chirpy indie-pop, 10 p.m., $6. No cover band that plays Little Rock commands a more devoted following than '80s-focused Venus Mission, who play at Revolution, 9 p.m., $6. In “The Time Is Now,” the Arkansas Chamber Singers take on selections from Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn and Purcell, St. Mark's Episcopal, 7:30 p.m., $10-$15 (the singers reprise their performance on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Clinton Library). The 4X4 Crew, Mike Streezy and North Rock are among those scheduled to perform at Booze and Barz, an underground hip-hop party at Downtown Music, 9 p.m., $5. Young, popular Christian rock bands Skillet, Hawk Nelson, Decyfer Down and the Letter Black play the last installment of Music in the Park at the Riverfest Amphitheatre, 7 p.m., $10-$45. From Memphis, the Teenage Eyes play awesomely wobbly power-pop at Vino's, 8:30 p.m.

 

SATURDAY 10/10

Self-made underground superstar Corey Smith returns to Revolution, which he always sells out, 9 p.m., $15 adv., $20 d.o.s. It's a night of riff-heavy local rock at Juanita's with Go Fast and San Antokyo sharing a bill, 9:30 p.m., $5. Or, at White Water, it's a night of cheeky garage-pop with the Weisenheimers and throwback hard rock with Conway's the Muddlestuds, 9 p.m., $5. Red Dirt country standout Stoney LaRue shares the bill with Nashville's the Dirt Drifters at Sticky Fingerz, 9 p.m., $8 adv., $10 d.o.s.

  • Trump unfit

    Even as an oligarch, President Trump turns out to be breathtakingly incompetent. Is there any reason to suppose he's even loyal to the United States? Does he even understand the concept? Trump is loyal to Trump, and to his absurdly swollen ego. Nothing and nobody else.
  • You want tort reform? Try this.

    The nursing home industry and the chamber of commerce finally defeated the trial lawyers in the 2017 legislature. The Republican-dominated body approved a constitutional amendment for voters in 2018 that they'll depict as close to motherhood in goodness.
  • Goodbye, Mr. Trump

    It is hard to escape the feeling that the fortunes of President Trump and the country took a decisive, and for Trump a fatal, turn May 9-10, when the president fired the director of the FBI over its investigation of Russian efforts to swing the presidential election to him and the very next day shared top-secret intelligence with Russian officials in an Oval Office meeting closed except to a Kremlin press aide toting electronic gear to capture the intimate session for Russians but not Americans.
  • Raw feelings in the Arkansas Justice Building over workload, pay

    Strained relations between the Arkansas Supreme Court and the Arkansas Court of Appeals broke into public view this week. I expect more to come.
