Montgomery Trucking and The Cleverlys team up at Stickyz 

THURSDAY 4/21

Tonya Leeks & Co. fill The Afterthought with soul, R&B and funk, 8 p.m., $7.

And down the street, The Rep's latest acclaimed production, "Hairspray," returns for another week, 7 p.m., $20-$40.

FRIDAY 4/22

Young musician/DJ/promoter Dylan Dugger hosts "Organized Chaos," a live dance party rife with dueling DJs and back-up dancers, at Pulse, 11 p.m., $5.

Black Oak Arkansas and Krokus alum Andy Tanas takes happy hour duty at Cajun's Wharf, 5:30 p.m., before Big John Miller shreds the blues for the late-night crowd, 9 p.m., $5 after 8:30 p.m. Fellow bluesman David Kimbrough Jr. returns to White Water Tavern, playing with Franklin-Devlin Band and Stacy Mackey, 10 p.m. For the dancers, "Cool Shoes" hosts its "Summer Kickoff Party" with DJs Kichen, Emkay Ultra and Gdash, 9 p.m., $10.

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
