JOE JOHNSON’S ALL-STAR BIRTHDAY BASH
9 p.m., Clear Channel Metroplex, $50-$75.

A couple issues back, former Razorback and NBA All-Star Joe Johnson sat down for a Q&A with the Times’ Lindsey Millar. When Millar asked him what he had on the horizon for this summer, Johnson offhandedly mentioned an upcoming birthday. It seemed like a bit of an odd thing to bring up. But whatever, birthday parties are always fun, with the ice cream and cake and balloons. Then we realized, oh, this is what he was talking about: For his 30th birthday, Johnson is bringing in big-time Atlanta MC Young Jeezy as well as ’90s R&B stars K-Ci & JoJo for the “White Out Black Night Party,” a 21-and-up throw-down that will likely go down in Little Rock party lore. Tickets are $50 for general admission or $75 for VIP, which includes table seating and the buffet. Is there even any question which one you should opt for? After all, we wouldn’t expect the guy who owns the Super Truck to go for anything less than totally over-the-top when it comes time for a birthday throw-down. There’s a strictly enforced dress code of black and/or white attire for the affair, with no tennis shoes, T-shirts, jeans or sagging pants getting in the door.
