Weekend To-do: April 30-May 2

So, a senior Iranian cleric named Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi said a few weeks ago that all these earthquakes we’ve had on earth recently are a direct result of women dressing provocatively.

Then, someone named Jen McCreight issued a challenge on her blog to women around the world to join her by testing old Sedighi’s theory. “On Monday, April 26th, I will wear the most cleavage-showing shirt I own. Yes, the one usually reserved for a night on the town. I encourage other female skeptics to join me and embrace the supposed supernatural power of their breasts.”

Boobquake was born, took off all over the internets, and several thousand ladies around the world actually put Mr. Sedighi’s claims to the test by joining McCreight and showing a little skin on Monday.

Yesterday, there was a magnitude 2.5 earthquake just down the road in Centerton, Arkansas.

Yep. Boobquakes are real.

Tonight, if you feel like starting early, you can check out Walter Savage at Greenhouse Grille, or Michael Burks and Josh Garret at George’s for happy hour.

There are two house shows in town Friday night, with Neon Glittery, Daniel(s), David’s Pegasus, and DJ SweetNES at The GROJ. Awesome Color is in town from Detroit with Hair Police and So Boring at Ameroplace. Do yourself a favor, and check out Awesome Color. You’re welcome.

There’s a dance party at Smoke and Barrel with DJ Bizar, if you feel like shaking it.

There’s also a big ass hip-hop show at George’s late night with Lucio, Epiphany, AutioMadic, and Hardaway & The Commoners.

On Saturday, A Good Fight will release their second album, also called A Good Fight at George’s. SilverStone, ROTC, and Rocker Lips will open the show.

Graham Wilkinson and the Underground Township are back in town for a show at Smoke and Barrel.

There’s a big old fashion show at the AMP, with Ren Lovely, DJ Sterling and Funkphilosphy providing the tunes. All the proceeds go to NWA Young Professionals Scholarship Fund, and Single Parent Scholarship Fund.

There’s also a crazy event at Rogue. Lucio is at it again, with “Hip-Hop Elements,” featuring live emcees, DJ’s, art display, b-boys & street dancers, freestyle competition, and a rap battle. Sweet.

If you feel like watching a movie, you could check out dinner and a movie night at UARK Bowl with American Graffiti.

There are 1,000 other things happening in town this weekend. What are y’all gonna do?
