In brief, Sept. 25 


The new, largely instrumental act Eclipse Glasses joins experimental stalwarts the Western Meds to perform a benefit to restore the Dreamland Ballroom at the Flag and Banner Building. The benefit won't be held in the ballroom, but will be at the Flag and Banner building on Ninth Street, 8:30 p.m., $5. At On the Rocks, Little Rock's most sterling post-punk bands, Kyoto Boom and the Moving Front, perform what's sure to be a gig packed with equal parts die-hard followers and casual fans eager to take advantage of staggeringly cheap drink specials, 8 p.m., $5. Popular cover (and sometimes original) act the Gettys headline at Cajun's, 9 p.m., $5. “The Heat Rock” at Cornerstone features a good deal of unknown rappers, but also local standouts like Grim Muzik, Big Drew and Clint G, 8 p.m. Local talents Shannon Wiggins and Lawrence Hamilton perform at the Quapaw Quarter United Methodist Church in “Hot Mama Wiggins Variety Hour and Musicfest,” a fund-raiser for the church's music program, 7 p.m., $15.



Beginning early in the morn, the two-day Worldfest celebrates global diversity through food, music, dance, art, crafts, culture and education on the grounds of the Clinton Library, 9 a.m., free. Also beginning in the morning, the Great Arkansas Talent Search opens its semi-final rounds to the public at Riverfest Amphitheatre, 10 a.m., $10. It continues, same time, place and price, on Saturday. Junior Kimbrough's son David Kimbrough Jr. plays an updated (somewhat R&B) version of his father's hypnotic North Mississippi blues at White Water, with the highly impressive Thomas Houston Jones and Blues Boy Jag, 9 p.m., $5. The Disco Itch once again presents another installment of the dance party “Cool Shoes” at Downtown Music, 10 p.m., $5. The all-ages get-down features DJs like IKE, Carpenzo and g-force and a special appearance by Epiphany. At “Pirates vs. Ninjas” at Revolution, superstar house DJs John Debo and John Bishop work the crowd, which is encouraged to dress as pirates, ninjas, geishas or wenches, into a froth, 8 p.m., $15.



Popular, longstanding alt-country act the Derailers comes to Sticky Fingerz, 9:30 p.m., $8. At Revolution,'80s-themed cover act Venus Mission performs, 9 p.m.
