New on Rock Candy 

This Thursday night, former Razorback and current Chicago Bull Ronnie Brewer hosts a birthday party for promoter Courtney G at Deep Ultra Lounge, with DJ sets by Greyhound and g-force.

The event is also an album release party for Goines, whose newest album, "Something to Lose," has been earning big-ups on the web. Everything gets rolling around 10 p.m.

Head to Rock Candy to hear "The Natural State," the latest from Song+Stories, an audio series that blends documentary tape with original songs. The piece is on Arkansas earthquakes and blends clips of Faulkner County residents discussing their experiences as well as the pros and cons of the natural gas boom with a new song, written for the series, by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy called "Mother Nature Kneels." Hear the song at arktimes.com/mothernaturekneels.

Aug. 3 would have been Little Rock-born jazz musician Art Porter Jr.'s 50th birthday. The saxophonist died in a boating accident in Thailand in 1996.

To commemorate Porter's life and work, Art Porter Music Education Inc., a nonprofit that provides scholarships to budding musicians, will present a week's worth of music and events to celebrate the virtuoso musician's life, from Aug. 1-6 at venues throughout Little Rock. See the complete schedule at arktimes.com/artporter.

Pretty Lights, the DJ name of Fort Collins, Colorado's Derek Vincent Smith, is coming to Verizon Arena on Oct. 29. Tickets to the general admission show (a rarity at Verizon) range from $30 to $33 and go on sale on July 15 via Ticketmaster.

Early registration for this year's Little Rock leg of the 48 Hour Film Project is now open, with early bird teams that sign up before Aug. 1 getting in for only $140 per team. The price jumps by $20 bucks after that. Register via 48hourfilm.com/littlerock.

  • In the margins

    A rediscovered violin concerto brings an oft-forgotten composer into the limelight.
  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
