A few hundred people gathered on the square and on Dickson Street Saturday afternoon for Fayetteville’s first St. Patrick’s Day parade.

Legendary mandolin player and composer David Grisman will co-headline the Fayetteville Roots Festival, set to take place in multiple locations around town from August 23-26.

ESPN SEC blogger Edward Aschoff last week asked Arkansas fans what to do while in Fayetteville. This morning he posted a few of the suggestions he received.

Monday Events


Hardcore supergroup Narrows and metal masters All Pigs Must Die are in town tonight for what Arkansas Times has predicted will be “the best hardcore show of the year.”

We posted a brief interview with Narrows last week. In that piece, Roger Barrett called Narrows’ latest effort “a cohesive and nihilistic assault” that “sounds like five men destroying a small room.” Over at AT’s Robert Bell said APMD makes “the most hair-raising, jaw-clenching, blistering metal I’ve heard in forever.”

Locals band Cowards will open the 8 p.m. show at Dickson Theater. $5 cover, ages 18 and up.

The full list:

JJ’s Grill: Austin Miller
The Perk: Open acoustic jam
