Weekend Flyer: Les Mis, Adeem the Artist, TV Preacher, and more

Feels like we barely had a week at all this week, and it’s already time for a weekend. We aren’t complaining.

There’s a big show at Walton Arts Center this week with Broadway classic, Les Miserables, playing in Baum Walker Hall. It’s mostly sold out for the entire run, but we spotted a few single tickets here and there recently. If any exist, you’ll find them here.

The Momentary has kicked off their winter lineup of indoor shows, and they’ve got a bit one on Friday night with North Caroline-based country singer Adeem the Artist. Locals Dylan Earl, who just made Paste Magazine’s list of the to 30 country/folk/Americana artists of 2023, and Ashtyn Barbaree are also on the bill.

Nomad’s Trailside has a rock show on Saturday night featuring TV Preacher, Bellwether Sirens and The Idioms.

George’s will kick off their weekend with a happy hour show featuring Boston Mountain Playboys, followed by a late night show with Mildenhall, Resting, Midnight Wagon and Alkyvad. On Sunday, Ozark Blues Society will host a fundraiser to send this year’s blues challenge winner Chad Marshall Band to the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. The fundraiser will include a performance by the band, along with former Blues Challenge Winners Divas On Fire and Oreo Blue.

How about some comedy? Local improv troupe Phunbags will perform on Saturday night at Six Twelve Coffee House and Bar. Tickets are $10, on sale here.

The Razorback men’s basketball team opens conference play with a matchup versus No. 25-ranked Auburn on Saturday. It’s a 1 p.m. tipoff, and the game will be televised by ESPN2. The Razorback women’s basketball team also plays a home game this weekend when they take on Georgia on Sunday.

There’s more below. Just keep trying your best. That’s all that matters.
