Weekend Flyer: Faychella, Stepmom, Razorback soccer, and more

Stepmom ( Madelyn Amacher Photography)

As far as we know, Alice Cooper still hasn’t written any songs titled “School’s in for Autumn,” but if he had, this would definitely be the right weekend to start rocking that track.

It’s the last weekend before school starts for local public schools on Monday, and also the last weekend before a majority of the UA students get back into town to start classes on Aug. 21. I guess what we’re saying is, if you’ve gotten used to the quiet that comes to Fayetteville during the slow summer months, it might be best to start getting un-used to it.

Starting on Thursday, there’s a big country music show at the Walmart AMP with Luke Bryan, along with Chayce Beckham, Ashley Cooke, and Jackson Dean.

Also in Thursday night tunes, there’s a fun show at George’s with local rockers Mildenhall and Ted Hammig & the Campaign. On Friday night, they’ll kick off the weekend with a performance by local legends Earl & Them, followed by a Prince tribute to close out the evening.

There’s a one-day hip hop festival called Faychella happening at Prairie Street Live on Saturday. The show will include performances by 91 Thompson & Swayzee Beats, Al’Nicx, SOS Finess Gang, Will Gates, Chyrell, 4kg and JusTyler, T.R.A. Longway, Jayce Janae, Dray Johnson, Highway Yella, Jay Jackson, Candice Allen, and others, along with bounce houses, games, snow cones, and other festivities. Tickets are $10. Here’s more.

Also on Saturday night, Oklahoma City-based punk band Stepmom is in town for a show with fellow Oklahoma rockers Audio Book Club and local favs, The Phlegms at Smoke & Barrel Tavern. Tickets are $12. Here’s more.

The Razorback soccer team is back in action with an exhibition matchup versus SIUE at 6 p.m. on Saturday night, and admission is free to the public.

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