In case you haven’t heard, the Randy Houser show at George’s has been canceled due to an “unforeseen scheduling conflict.” According to, tickets purchased will be honored for a yet-to-be-announced makeup date, or refunds will be issued at the ticket holder’s request. Kory Montgomery is still set to play for free, though.

For anyone who’s been putting off buying a couple of tickets to see the Arkansas men’s basketball team this season, tonight’s the night to go for it.

Attendance hasn’t been so hot lately at the “Basketball Palace of Mid-America,” but if any game this season is set for a big draw, tonight’s game is it.

The Hogs have their hands (and arms and shoulders) full as the No. 22 Kentucky Wildcats are in town for a 7 p.m. tipoff at Bud Walton Arena. As tough as this game may sound, the Wildcats are actually 1-5 on the road this season in SEC play. In other words, we’re saying there’s a chance.

Of course, there’s plenty more happening in town tonight.
