Timberwood announces concerts 

Magic Springs Timberwood Amphitheater has made several concert announcements for its upcoming season, and if you're a fan of country or contemporary Christian pop, you should probably just go ahead and move to Magic Springs. Do they let people live there? Maybe in the parking lot?

May 26: The Charlie Daniels Band

June 2 — Trace Adkins

June 9 — Third Day

July 7 — Gretchen Wilson

July 14 — Switchfoot

Aug. 4 — Justin Moore

Aug. 11 — Newsboys

Verizon Arena has rescheduled the concert by Maze featuring Frankie Beverly that had been slated for Nov. 20. The band is now scheduled to play March 17 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $37-$67.

The Little Rock Horror Picture Show, the fanged-and-betentacled sister film fest that sprang from the guts of the Little Rock Film Festival, is teaming up with the Central Arkansas Library System's Butler Center for Arkansas Studies to throw a "secret" screening and reception Jan. 31 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The event is open to the public and will serve as an early sneak peek for the LR Horror Picture Show, which is scheduled for Feb. 17-19 at Market Street Cinema.

Attendees will be able to purchase passes for the Picture Show at the Butler Center event.

A short that Ray McKinnon directed and Times columnist Graham Gordy wrote and starred in a couple years ago is now on YouTube and Vimeo. You can see it on Rock Candy.

Gordy's currently writing for McKinnon's forthcoming Sundance series, "Rectify."

The premise sounds promising: "Rectify follows the life of Daniel Holden upon his release from jail after serving nineteen years on Georgia's Death Row before DNA evidence disputed the State's original case. Holden, who was only eighteen years of age when convicted and sentenced to die for the brutal rape and murder of a sixteen year old girl, returns to his family and to his hometown where the murder occurred and where many still believe he is guilty. Daniel spent all of his adult life waiting to die. Now he must learn how to live again or decide if he even wants to while others choose whether or not he will have that chance."

    Out here in flyover country, you can't hardly go by the feed store without running into a reporter doing one of those Wisdom of the Heartland stories.
  • Not Whitewater

    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.
