Country crooner Brad Paisley appears with pretty girl/pretty voice Sara Evans "Fly" and newcomer Eric Church tonight at Alltel Arena. Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are priced at $29.50 and $39.50 plus service charges through Ticketmaster or the arena box office. The arena is expected the lower bowl filled.
Joseph Galema, the U.S. Air Force Academy and senior music director and academy organist, will perform at the third annual Robert Y. Ellis Memorial Concert tonight at 7:30 p.m. at St. Mark's Episcopal Church. Admission is free.
The Quapaw Quarter United Methodist Church steps out where others dare not go with their Faith and Film Series, and the program starts back tonight with a showing of "Brokeback Mountain" at 7 p.m. Admission is free, the movies are followed by discussion of the faith issues they raise, and soft drinks and popcorn are provided. Hard to beat that. Obviously, about everyone knows about "Brokeback Mountain" so leave the youngsters at home. The church is at 1601 S. Louisiana.
Out of town, there's a free outdoor concert at Henderson State in Arkadelphia featuring NuFusion, while Texarkana's big Jump! Jive! and Jamfest! gets underway today and runs all weekend (Marcia Ball, Ruthie Foster and others performing).
