Gosh, I almost hate suggesting it as THE thing to do tonight in the Little Rock area. Well, you could go check out "Superman Returns" (see David Koon's review in this week's issue) or "The Devil Wears Prada" (read Tricia Harris' review in the same said issue), but really, this incredibly early fall like weather has OUTSIDE CONCERT written all over it.
Alas, what's being offered to you concert goers, via the Edge 100.3 FM, is "Edge Fest" with Rob Zombie and his "American Witch" tour. Shinedown and Trapt are both pretty good, and are part of the bill, but if we never hear Anthrax again it will be too soon. That's OK, we know some of you out there love Anthrax, and Rob Zombie (he's been hitting all the late-night talk shows lately, and he's making a name for himself in the movie business as a director) will put on an interesting show, to say the least. It's heavy metal rock, certainly, but we're figuring a huge crowd is going to fill that North Shore Riverwalk over in North Little Rock tonight.
We'll have free-lancer Stewart Deere on the scene and hope to have a report early tomorrow morning on the show. Check back here for the full, screaming story.
Showtime for the first act is 4:45 p.m. with Rob going on around 9:20. The concert ends at 11 p.m. Tickets at the gate are $40.
