Neo soul night 

ANTHONY DAVID
10 p.m., Revolution. $20.

Continuing an impressive streak of attracting neo-soul talent, Little Rock gets another potentially rising star on Friday. Anthony David, from Atlanta, comes to town co-signed by India-Arie, whose Soulbird imprint (distributed by Universal Republic) released his “Acey Deucy” last year. Ironically, it was David who encouraged his longtime friend Arie to get started performing professionally and even bankrolled some of her early sessions with his rent money. Karma seems to be coming round. David was nominated for a Grammy this year for the single “A Part of My Life.” His “Bill Withers meets Mos Def” sound, as Arie has described it, should bring out the crowds in droves. Particularly since it's also a joint birthday party for local trumpet standout Rodney Block and One Stone front man Christopher Bowen, who'll also perform.

    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.
