It’s the weekend, and we don’t know about you guys, but we really needed this one. Let’s celebrate.

JJ’s Live has a few big shows this weekend, with rapper/record exec Rick Ross performing on Friday night, country artist Ian Munswich on Saturday, and Alice in Chains guitarist Jerry Cantrell performing on Sunday. If tickets to any of these remain, here’s where to get them.

Junior Civic League of Fayetteville will host their biggest fundraiser of the year called I Love Fayetteville Big Party on Friday night. The event will include music by Funk Factory and TJ Scarlett, a raffle, and more, and funds raised will benefit local non-profit organizations that help women and children in NWA. Here’s a bit more info.

TheatreSquared has a new show called Sanctuary City now playing in downtown Fayetteville. They are coming off their first Obie Awards win earlier this week. Here’s where to get tickets and a schedule of performances for this weekend.

In comedy, your best bet might be to swing up to Lowell for one of the performances by comedian Sarah Colonna at The Grove Comedy Club. Here’s ticket info.

If you ever wished you could check out the interactive Listening Forest light and sound installation at Crystal Bridges when it wasn’t quite as cold as it has been when it was up in November and December, you’ll get your chance this year. The exhibit is back on display this weekend, and will run through May 28. Here’s more.

There’s a rock show at Smoke & Barrel on Saturday night with a three-band bill featuring Blushing (Austin), Peach Blush, Mildenhall, and Pillar Reef.

In sports, it’ll likely be the last time to check out Nick Smith, Anthony Black, Kamani Johnson, and others at Bud Walton Arena as the Razorback men’s basketball team take on Kentucky in their regular season finale. It’s a 1 p.m. tipoff. It’s a white out, so, dress appropriately.

The Razorback baseball team is also in town as well taking on Wright State in a three game series at Baum, and the softball team is also in town taking on North Texas, Iowa State, and Texas A&M – Corpus Christi.

There’s more below. Have a great weekend, everyone.
