There’s a long list of good local bands at George’s Majestic Lounge Friday night. A really long list. Swimming, Teenagers, Bear Colony, Fauxnz, Very Special Guests, and The Poggs are all on the bill for the late night show. For happy hour, Fort Smith bluesman Chris Cameron will perform in the garden, and Oklahoma vocalist Michelle McBride is in the lounge.

Since 1990, some incredible singer-songwriters, including well-known names in folk, bluegrass, and blues, have performed acoustic shows for small audiences in an old house venue in downtown Fayetteville called GoodFolk Productions. This weekend, music lovers will say goodbye to the house at 229 N. Block Ave., as the last two shows at the location are set for this weekend. One of them is Friday night, with Robin & Linda Williams & Their Fine Group. The show will be held on the back porch to accommodate an (expected) larger crowd.

JR’s Lightbulb Club has a pair of Austin, Tex. bands Equals and Corduroi, along with Little Rock band, Mainland Divide. Check out this video of Equals performing Emo’s recently.
