Soul'd out 

SOUL'D OUT

10 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv./$15 d.o.s.

Local promotional company Upscale Underground picks up in 2008 what it began late last year: urbane, soul-oriented line-ups of ahead-of-the-curve local and national artists. Dwele, a Grammy-nominated crooner who appears on Kanye West's latest single, “Flashing Lights,” hosts Friday's “Soul'd Out” concert. He's likely to perform a song or two, but three local groups will get more stage time. A new four-piece R&B act, Smooth September, features three vocalists: Desmond and Maya Ellington and Delya Chandler. Rodney Block is surely Little Rock's most accomplished brass man. The trumpeter (multi-instrumentalist, really) leads his group the Real Music Lovers in a kind of jazz that embraces hip-hop, bebop, funk, soul and gospel. One Night Stand needs to change its name. The live hip-hop band came together on a whim to support local rapper Epiphany early last year, and they've stuck around for more than a dozen gigs, steadily emerging as one of our most dynamic local live acts. The concert is open to ages 18 and up.

  • Bad health care bill, again

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
  • The inadequate legacy of Brown

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.

    Robocalls -- recorded messages sent to thousands of phone numbers -- are a fact of life in political campaigns. The public doesn't like them much, judging by the gripes about them, but campaign managers and politicians still believe in their utility.
