Local badasses Cletus Got Shot are back in town for a show at Smoke & Barrel Friday night.

Looking at the list of things to do this weekend, you might be thinking to yourself, “Geez, everyone decided to plan their thing for the same weekend. Why did they do that?”

For one thing, you’re right. Everyone did plan their event for this weekend. For two, the reason is because it’s the first weekend in the fall when the Razorbacks and all 75,000 of their friends aren’t in town (they’ll be in Little Rock kicking the butts of some Lobo’s).

It happens every year. It kind of rules. Get used to it.


Funny Bitches

If we told you in 1987 that Huey Lewis and The News were going to be playing a free show in a downtown parking lot, there’s no way you’d have believed us. Well, it’s 2011, and Huey Lewis and The News are playing a free show in the Walton Arts Center parking lot Friday night. Do you believe us now?

If you get thirsty after work, Lafuso and Eoff Bros. are playing happy hour at George’s Majestic Lounge. Later on, alternative rock musicians 10 Years will take the stage with Fayetteville expats Nate Hancock & the Declaration.

There’s a big show at Smoke & Barrel Tavern with Cletus Got Shot, Carrie Nation & The Speakeasy (Wichita, KS), Filthy Still (Providence, RI).

How about some comedy? Comedians Amy Pannell, Kate Lucas, and Kendel Renee will bring their “Funny Bitches” comedy tour to the UARK Bowl. Word on the street is they’ve been killing it in Little Rock. Tickets are $8 at the door.

Locals Trio DeJaniero are playing an early show at the new Legacy Blues Lounge, and later on, James Lewis Johnson aka Super Chikan will be playing some delta blues songs.

Remember earlier this week when we told you about SARPA’s Cirque de Couture fashion competition at Rogue Pizza Co.? Well, that’s happening Friday night as well. Don’t forget.


If you don’t go to the Farmers’ Market on Saturday morning, you’re going to kick yourself in a few months when they’re closed for the season. Keep that in mind.

Want to see an awesome local band? Send + Return is playing their first show in a while at The Lightbulb Club, and later on DJ Clunk will be clicking the trackpad on his laptop computer.

Smoke & Barrel Tavern has local favorites The Plaid Jackets, and there’s a show at Goodfolk with local songwriter Jack Williams.

How about a poetry reading? There’s one at Nightbird Books called The Improved Lighting Reading Series on Saturday night, with poets C. Violet Eaton, Whit Griffin, Katie Nichol, and Sabine Schmidt reading from their work, and music provided by Sam King (Egyptr) and Katy Henriksen’s new project, The Rhubarbs.

If you’ve been wanting to get a dog (do it), Saturday is the day to get one for free at the Fayetteville Animal Shelter.


TheatreSquared’s Boeing-Boeing continues at Nadine Baum Studios with shows scheduled all weekend, including two on Sunday (2 p.m. and 7 p.m.)

Local children’s theatre company Arts Live Theatre is performing The Bright Blue Mailbox Suicide Note at their studio theatre on Sang Avenue all weekend as well. There’s a 2 p.m. show on Sunday.

Sunday tunes-wise, Teddy Sablon is at Common Grounds, and Tin Pan Alley Cats are at Greenhouse Grille.

Happy Birthday!
