Friday Events, June 21


First of all, let me say that this weekend is shaping up to be one of the best for music we’ve seen in a long time. And it starts at happy hour, with the legendary Cate Brothers in the garden at George’s Majestic Lounge at 6 p.m. Locals Oreo Blue are also on the bill, performing in the lounge at 7 p.m. Admission is $5.

Also on Friday night, the incredible, masked surf-ninja band Daikaiju will return for a show at Smoke & Barrel Friday night. Smoke & Barrel co-owner Evan McDonald called their last performance one of the best the venue has ever seen. Admission is $5 at the door.

The Artosphere Festival Orchestra will be performing “An Evening with Beethoven” Friday night at Walton Arts Center. It looks like this one’s sold out, though, so hopefully you’ve already to your tickets.

For laughs, UARK Bowl has comedian Tim Northern. Admission is $7, and the show starts at 8 p.m.
