We don’t even want to type this out loud after the week we had last week, but feels like we need to say that there is a chance of snow on Friday again, and if that happens, it’s probably best to double check on any of the events listed below before heading out. Hope not. Surely not. But it might snow again. Ugh.
It’s a pretty good week for entertainment in Fayetteville. First off, acclaimed indie rock band Big Thief will play their first-ever show in Fayetteville on Friday night at George’s. It’s totally sold out. The band also recently announced they’ll be playing some dates with former Fayettevillian, Lucinda Williams, which is kind of a cool connection. George’s has another big show on Saturday with Oklahoma City brass band, King Cabbage.
Walton Arts Center has a Broadway show with Moulin Rouge playing all weekend. They’re actually performing the show next week as well. Here’s ticket info.
TheatreSquared has another hit on their hands with the adaptation of “Kim’s Convenience.” The show was recently extended through Feb. 26 as a result of its success so far. Here’s ticket info for this weekend’s performances.
Local musician and artist Donna Mullhollan will host an art exhibit titled The Darkness of the Womb on Friday night in Sequoyah Hall at Mount Sequoyah Center. In addition to the art show, Mullhollan’s folk duo Still on the Hill will also perform as part of the event. The show was originally scheduled for last week, but was rescheduled due to the weather. Here’s a bit more.
How about some sports? The Arkansas men’s basketball team takes on Mississippi State at 5 p.m. on Saturday at Bud Walton Arena. The Hogs are coming off a big win versus Kentucky, but Mississippi State is also on a bit of a winning streak. The Arkansas women also play in town this weekend, as they take on Missouri at 2 p.m. on Sunday.
There’s a little football match happening on Sunday called the Super Bowl that maybe y’all have heard of. Chiefs or Eagles?
Feel like shaking a leg? There will be a swing dancing event at Arkansas Air & Military Museum on Saturday night. It’s called the Sweetheart Hangar Dance. Here’s more about that.
Valentine’s Day is coming up on Tuesday as well, and we’d guess at least some of y’all are celebrating with your sweetheart this weekend.
Have a great one, everyone.
