It’s Fayetteville Roots Festival week, and though this year’s event has been postponed until 2021, there’s still some music to check out online or via limited-capacity in-person shows. George’s Majestic Lounge will host two Fayetteville Roots-associated shows, first with local legends Earl & Them on Friday night, and then with local bluegrass band Arkansauce on Saturday. Both will allow some in-person attendance, and will be streamed online via Fayetteville Roots Facebook page.
Roots Fest officials will also host a streaming show on Sunday featuring performances by 3 Penny Acre, Ashtyn Barbaree, Jamie Lou Connolly, and Kaylin Fay live from Fayetteville Roots HQ, streaming from Fayetteville Roots Facebook page. Here’s a bit more about that.
Also in tunes, local band The Juice are scheduled to perform on Saturday as part of Mount Sequoyah’s Music on the Mountain series.
Prairie Street Live will screen the classic 80’s film Sixteen Candles on Friday night on their big screen. Admission is free.
TheatreSquared will continue their New Play Festival this weekend with a staged reading (with some digital magic) of a new play called Russian Troll Farm on Friday night (and through the weekend). Here’s more information.
The 112 Drive In is showing Mean Girls and Clueless this weekend. Here’s more about that.
As we’ve previously mentioned, there are more than 40 local bars and restaurants participating in the new ORA, so you could try that out.
As always, feel free to let us know what else is going on in the comments below. Stay safe, y’all.
