SATURDAY 10/5. 8:30 p.m. White Water Tavern.
Central Arkansas’s finest (and least active) cover band, The Libras, returns to White Water Tavern for what’s becoming an annual tradition: a night devoted to the songs of widely beloved figures in pop music. Last year, the band, comprised of hotshot local musicians Isaac Alexander, Jason Weinheimer, Chris Michaels, Charles Wyrick and Rafael Gayol and assorted special guests, came together to play Traveling Wilburys songs in one set and songs from the members of the Wilburys in the second set. Members of the audience spun a “Wheel of Fortune”-style wheel with each Wilbury’s name on it between each song and then shouted out requests. It was just about the most fun I had at a live show all last year. Like last year’s event, this is a fundraiser for the Pulaski Heights Elementary PTA (full disclosure, I’m on the PTA board) and the band will probably asks for tips toward the fundraiser for a turn at the wheel. So bring your folding money.
