Art Amiss Metal Comp.

The fine folks from Art Amiss are releasing their brand new metal compilation, “The Hills Have Amps” at Smoke & Barrel Friday night. Vore, Potions, and Lightbulb Detective Agency will perform, and attendees will be able to get their hands on the six-song, 12″ splatter-painted vinyl album for $10.

George’s has a happy hour show with Full House, followed by a show with Los Angeles electronic break-beat duo, The Crystal Method. Last we heard, there were a few tickets left, but probably not for long.

Pat Green

There’s a chocolate party at the Northwest Arkansas Mall on Saturday. It’s called Le Chocolate Feast, and 15 restaurants will bring some sort of chocolate dish for attendees to taste. Tickets are $10 ($5 for kids), and proceeds benefit local cancer charities.

Walton Arts Center has comedian Lewis Black Saturday night. Here’s hoping you already got tickets to this one if you wanted ’em, though. We’re pretty sure this show is totally sold out.

The Pat Green/Brent Cobb show at George’s Saturday night was also close to a sellout last time we heard, just so you know. You could try George’s ticketing site.
