News Briefs

E. Fay Jones’ Fulbright Peace Fountain

A new exhibit exploring the work of late architect E. Fay Jones will be on display at the Clinton House Museum through Dec. 15.

Representatives from local co-ops will participate in a panel discussion and question and answer session about the cooperative business model, what it is, why it works, and how it could be expanded locally on Saturday at the Fayetteville Public Library.

The Razorbacks take on the Alabama Crimson Tide this weekend. Guess the score for a chance to win a t-shirt from Bearstate Supply.

Friday events, Sept. 14

Blue Mountain

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. The best Fridays start with a happy hour, and there are a couple of them this weekend. First of all, the legendary Cate Brothers are at George’s Majestic Lounge beginning at 6 p.m.

At 7 p.m., The Lightbulb Club will host another one of their roots happy hour events with Allison Williams & The Hot Ash String Band. Later on, they’ve got a rock show with Revolt Revolt, Suzi Trash, and Cat Sabbath.

There’s a big show scheduled at Kingfish (so long as this rain clears out by then) with legendary Americana band Blue Mountain. The band, formed by Cary Hudson and Laurie Stirratt (twin sister of Wilco/Uncle Tupelo bassist John Stirratt), helped shape the alt-country genre in the mid-90s. It’s also one of a series of large-scale, free shows planned at the venue this fall. Awesome. Update: This show has been moved to Smoke & Barrel Tavern from 7 -9 p.m. due to the weather.

You know the sweet singer/songwriter Candy Lee? Well, she apparently also has a funky side, and she’ll be showing it this weekend when she sits in on lead vocals with 1 Oz Jig at Smoke & Barrel Tavern.

Local favorites Charliehorse are playing on of their last shows for a while at Jose’s Friday night. The band told the Free Weekly recently that they’ll be taking a little hiatus soon.

It’s the second-to last weekend of performances for TheatreSquared’s hilarious show, Noises Off. There are several chances to see the show this weekend at Nadine Baum Studios.

A pig statue on Leverett Ave. sums up the
Arkansas/Bama matchup

The Hogs shocked the nation with their loss last week to the University of Louisiana-Monroe in Little Rock. They’ll have a chance to shock them again (in a different way) this weekend if they are somehow able to beat the defending national champion, No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide. Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m., and the game will be televised by CBS.
