This weekend in Fayetteville kind of has something for everybody.

Want to watch some movies? The Offshoot Film Festival is happening all weekend, with features, shorts, documentaries, and more at the UA’s Global Campus. Here’s more info about that.

Wanna hear some catchy tunes? Former UA student-turned pop star Ben Rector is in town for a sold out show at George’s Friday night. Fellow songwriters Jon McLaughlin and Adam Hambrick will open the show.

How about some world music? Funkadesi, the Chicago-based band combining Indian music — bhangra, Bollywood, Indian folk — with reggae, funk, and Afro-Caribbean grooves, will perform at 8 p.m. at Walton Arts Center.

There’s also a good show at Backspace, with locals Comfortable Brother, Buffalo Hustle and Alaskan Firedog.
