Muddling up blues, grunge, folk and punk, Cracker remains one of the mainstays of '90s alternative rock, traversing past its fallen, flannelled comrades and still recording and releasing albums with surprising regularity. Tonight, the band plays Revolution.

Armed with nothing but a microphone, a laser-honed wit, an armful of cocktails and buckets of charm, comedian Neil Hamburger takes aim at Red Hot Chili Peppers, Paris Hilton and, God help us, Heath Ledger at Sticky Fingerz tonight.
The Quapaw Quarter/Governor's Mansion district contains, brick for brick, the most interesting, gorgeous houses in the state. It's a magnificent neighborhood with eye candy for blocks. Tour the neighborhood for $15 today.
Fed primarily by nine-million gallon-per-hour Mammoth Spring in Fulton County, the Spring River surely one of the coldest swimming holes in the state, hovering at the take-your-breath-away temperature of 56 to 58 degrees year round.
Deer Tick's taken the vocal cadence, relaxed finger plucking and facial hair of John Prine, combined it with a vague grunge demeanor and found itself leading way for a nation full of young Americana acts.
Like a street in any nightclub district, President Clinton Avenue has a litter problem. Cigarette butts lie thick on the street any day; on Saturday and Sunday morning, the debris from partying the night before runs the gamut from butts and broken glass to blood and vomit.
The 12th annual celebration in the River Market is billed as “the largest showcase of Hispanic culture in Arkansas.” That means, from morning until near dark, there'll be singing and folkloric dancing and games for kids and all sorts of delicious Mexican and Latin American grub.
Arkansas's favorite annual family celebration of drunken riverboat crews -- who long ago would stop at a tavern outside of Conway, where they'd “suck on the bottle” until they swelled “up like toads” -- returns this weekend for the 39th year, with headliners like Clint Black.
The first thing we need to tell you about Faby's, which has two locations in Conway, is the tortillas -- hot, soft tortillas that are handmade from scratch each day. They're as flavorful as a good savory pie crust, but not so much that they distract from whatever you put them with. And that's far from all Faby's has to offer.
Tony Joe White's steadily made music for 40-plus years, mixing curious swamp rock hybrids with a foray into Michael McDonald-esque yacht rock, a loop and breakbeat-infused album of revisited hits and a brief detour into -- gasp -- disco territory!
Airy vocals with infallible harmonies, California guitar, drums that sound like a pick-up basketball game one second and a Krautrock take on New Orleans second line the next: Local Natives are Animal Collective without the pretension. Or maybe Grizzly Bear with grass stains. Or Vampire Weekend's cousins that passed up Columbia University for state school.
The organizers call Craws for a Cause “Arkansas' Largest Crawfish Boil.” I think they're underestimating the extent of this annual Bacchanalian. It's a celebration of excess, with unlimited crawfish and lakes of beer. (They went through 86 kegs last year.)
If the Volcanic Ash Monster deems it worthy and lets these Scotsmen out of his snares, Little Rock will get what's expected to be one of the best shows of the season from Frightened Rabbit. The five-piece plays unabashedly emotional guitar rock, a tense, melodic, masculine take on Morrissey's nervous, disillusioned and blatant sexual frustration.
A group of musicians fled from Sierra Leone's horrifically violent civil war, found each other in a hovel of a West African refugee camp and, in the face of such abject adversity and loss, started writing and performing some of the happiest, most optimistic music ever made.
