LITTLE ROCK MUSIC PARTY7:30 p.m., Studio Joe. $8.
Mark Taylor knows that a lot of grown folks need some prodding for them to step out for a concert. Or rather, as he says in his manifesto of sorts for the inaugural Little Rock Music Party
, adults “have a lot of conditions.” They don't want it to be smoky. They want shows to start early. They don't want the music to be too loud, and they want to be able to dance. It'd be great if the music was familiar, too. Taylor is satisfying all those demands on Saturday at Studio Joe, the new West Little Rock venue near Barnes and Noble bookstore. He's hosting long-time local players Marc Turner, Steve Struthers and Charlie Macom, who'll be playing songs you know. If you ask them nice, they'll probably let you sing a song, too. The music starts promptly at 7:30 p.m. and ends at 10:30 p.m., but no one will look at you crossways if you head to the door at 9 p.m.
