  • BELA FLECK: Will perform at the Harvest Music Festival.

Is there a better way to go to a music festival than by riding a bus with a keg and live entertainment? Probably not, but if you're still not sold, just ask any of the 150-plus folks who rode along with the Arkansas Times to the Johnny Cash Music Festival.

Once again, the Times will be taking busloads of blues-lovers to the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena. And once again, it's a hell of a bargain, at $99 a person for round-trip transportation, free booze and entertainment on the bus, plus a stopover in DeValls Bluff for barbecue at Craig's.

The bus leaves at 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, from the parking garage at Second and Main streets downtown and returns that evening. The headliner for Saturday night is Keb' Mo'. Other performers include Marcus "Mookie" Cartwright, Lonnie Shields, David "Honeyboy" Edwards, Tommy Castro, the Stax Review with Eddie Floyd, Duck Dunn and Steve Cropper, plus many more.

Call 375-2985 to order tickets, or send check or money order to: Arkansas Times Blues Bus, Box 34010, Little Rock, AR 72203.

The lineup for the Harvest Music Festival, the annual music and camping festival on Mulberry Mountain near Ozark, has been announced. It's as jam-y and folk-tastic as you'd expect. For the second year in a row, Colorado newgrass quartet Yonder Mountain String Band hosts and headlines. Among those who'll be performing are Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Railroad Earth, Split Lip Rayfield, The Travelin' McCourys, Reckless Kelly, Todd Snider, James McMurtry, Sara Watkins, Great American Taxi and Dirtfoot.

The festival runs from Oct. 13-16 this year. Tickets, currently on-sale for $140, are available at yonderharvestfestival.com.

Bobby, AKA as one half of the local duo Ear Fear with his brother 607, has a new release available. It's called "Its Jus Bobby" and available via itsjustbobby.bandcamp.com to stream or purchase for $5.

  • ASU to reap $3.69 million from estate of Jim and Wanda Lee Vaughn

    Arkansas State University announced today plans for spending an expected $3.69 million gift in the final distribution of the estate of Jim and Wanda Lee Vaughn, who died in 2013 and 2015 respectively.
  • 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.
