America’s Favorite Farmers’ Market

The Fayetteville Farmers’ Market was voted as America’s Favorite Farmers’ Market in a recently completed online voting competition. We’re #1.

Friday events, Sept. 7

Trashcan Bandits

Who’s ready for happy hour? George’s Majestic Lounge has one with local favorites Ultra Suede and Full House starting at 6 p.m. Later on, local bands Trashcan Bandits and Chooch and the SideHill Gougers will perform.

Remember that Paste Magazine 50 States Project that recognized a few Fayetteville bands? Well, Conway band Don’t Stop Please was also on that list, and they’ll make their way up I-540 for a show at Smoke & Barrel Tavern Friday night.

Send + Return’s Jason Wright is one of the best drummers this town has ever seen, and he’s playing his last show with the band at The Lightbulb Club Friday night before stepping aside to concentrate on other interests. The band will continue on with new drummer Damon Singleton (who is also a badass on the skins), but we recommend watching Jason one last time if you can make it out. Little Rock band Miss Riss and the Artful Dodgers, and Kansas City’s Simple Lines will also perform.

TheatreSquared’s Noises Off continues its run at Nadine Baum Studios this weekend, with performances scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Our reviewer Tobias Wray says it’s hilarious.

Speaking of laughs, another good bet is UARK Bowl, who will continue their fall stand-up comedy series with comics Stewart Huff and Keith Manning Friday night. Huff comes with a strong recommendation from KUAF’s Kyle Kellams who called him “a new generation George Carlin.”

Saturday morning, how about visiting the newly-crowned America’s Favorite Farmers’ Market on the Fayetteville Square? High five a farmer while you’re down there.

The Razorback Football team is back in action as well, and will take on the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock at 6 p.m on Saturday. The game will be televised by ESPNU. Oh, and we’ve got a little score prediction contest going on, too. Try your luck.

There’s a big electronic show at George’s with Eliot Lipp and GRiZ. We’ve heard really good things about Lipp’s live show, and GRiZ aka the 22-year-old Grant Kwiecinski, has a new album called Mad Liberation that a lot of people are freaking out about around the country.

Memphis psychedelic garage rockers Tiger High will be at Smoke & Barrel Saturday night with Portland, OR band The Shivas. Both bands sound pretty awesome.
