Weekend Flyer: Willie Nelson, Fayetteville Movement Festival, Gravedancer, and more

Let’s start this weekend off by guzzling a large glass of water, why don’t we? It is so hot.

Country legend Willie Nelson is in town for a show at the Walmart AMP on Thursday night with Margo Price, Flatland Cavalry, and Particle Kid. It’s gonna be a hot one there too. So hot, the Rogers fire department will be on hand to help cool people off.

The Fayetteville Movement Festival is back at Mount Sequoyah this weekend, with events kicking off on Friday. The event focuses on yoga, dance, and art, with classes in a variety of disciplines scheduled over the weekend. Here’s the full schedule.

George’s will kick off their weekend with a performance by local party legends, Ultra Suede, followed by Funk Factory. Fair warning. Between those two bands, rumps will certainly be shaking.

Also on Friday night, there’s a cool show at the Heartbreak House with former Fayettevillian Baker McKinney’s music project, Gravedancer. You can check out a few tracks here to get an idea of what to expect.

Smoke & Barrel will be rocking this weekend as well. They have a four band bill on Friday night with Joy Bomb, Tiny Towns, Fight Dream and Ley Lines. On Saturday, former Fayetteville resident Sean Chapman (Jesus Lee Jones, Nancy) has a new band called Subatlantic, and they’ll play with reunited Breathing Water. There’s another rock show on Sunday with Always Tired, Nightosphere, Colour Design, Chronowizard and Crush.

Also in local tunes, Vintage Pistol is back in action in the backyard at Kingfish on Saturday night.

In performances, it’s the last weekend to catch Violet, the musical playing at TheatreSquared the last few weeks. The final performance is on Sunday. Here’s the schedule.

Up north, there’s a big show at the Railyard Park in Rogers with Arkansauce, Chucky Waggs, and Ashtyn Barbaree on Friday night.

Little Rock rapper Big Piph is back in town as well, and will play Crystal Bridges Forest Concert Series at 7 p.m. on Saturday.

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