That fancy stadium over on Razorback Road will finally get some use this weekend.
After several weeks on the road, the Razorback football team have a home game on Saturday against Mississippi State. Kickoff is at 11 a.m. and the game is televised by ESPN.
To kick things off on Friday night, George’s will host longtime local party band Ultra Suede for Happy Hour. Later on, local duo Gypsy, featuring Tyler Bell and Jay Reynolds, are back together for a reunion show. On Saturday, there’s another reunion show with Goose (the Fayetteville version, not the jam band by the same name), and on Sunday there’s a big metal show with Rwake, Vore and more.
The laser light show and silent disco featuring music from 3 DJs we told y’all about earlier is happening on Friday night in the Lower Ramble. It’s from 6-10 p.m. It’s called Phantasma in the Ramble. Here’s a bit more info.
JJ’s Live also has a big show on Friday night with Hippie Sabotage. Here’s ticket info.
In other sports, the Razorback men’s basketball team plays an exhibition game Friday evening against The University of Texas at Tyler in Bud Walton Arena, but you’ll need a ticket as there’s no TV coverage planned. On Sunday the Arkansas soccer team takes on Ole Miss at 2 p.m. at Razorback Field.
TheatreSquared’s new show The Band’s Visit continues its run at their theatre on West Avenue. Here’s where to get tickets. Also at T2 is a reimagining of the traditional season kickoff celebration on Sunday evening (more on that here).
How about some jokes? Walton Arts Center has a comedy show on Friday night with comedian Andy Woodhull on Friday night. Ticket info is here.
It’s craft fair season, and the annual War Eagle Fair runs all weekend in Rogers. Locally, there’s a craft fair at the Washington County Fairgrounds in Fayetteville on Friday and Saturday. There’s also a Maker Faire at Fayetteville Public Library from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday. Here’s more info about that.
As Halloween approaches, there are a few options to get into the spooky season. Of course, Pinpoint is fully decked out for their annual Nightmare on Block Street Halloween-themed bar. There’s a haunted house at Prairie Street Live in south Fayetteville, and up in Springdale, there’s a ghost train tour and trick-or-treating event in the train cars at the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad depot.
