The King Biscuit Blues Festival is calling you. It's starting up on Thursday and peaking on Saturday night with headliner Gov't Mule. Maybe the reasonable voice inside your head is saying, "But I didn't plan ahead and get a room or a camping spot, and I don't want to drive all the way over there and drive back in the wee hours. Plus, drinking goes well with the blues and sitting on a levee."
Well, the Arkansas Times has just the solution. At 9 a.m., the Arkansas Times Blues Bus departs from old Ray Winder parking lot in Little Rock and heads to the Hollywood Cafe in Robinsville, Miss., for lunch. En route, there'll be plenty of adult beverage and an on-bus performance from Bluesboy Jag. We'll be at the festival by 1 p.m. and stay through Gov't Mule. All that for just $109 via centralarkansastickets.com.
The lineup on Saturday also includes the DuWayne Burnside Band, the West Coast Blues Review with Fillmore Slim, the Ben Miller Band and God's Children.
