RIVERTOP PARTY8 p.m., Peabody Little Rock. $5.
Even though the Rivertop Party, the Peabody Hotel's weekly spring and summertime get down, officially kicked off last week, consider this Friday's edition the grand opening. For starters, local boutique Barbara/Jean and Anue Salon are collaborating to put on a fashion show. Then there's music from Alabama's the Ugli Stick
, who've long been semi-regular performers in Central Arkansas. Since forming in 2000, the band's toured hard throughout the southeast behind a sound that borrows equally from pop, funk, rock and hip-hop.
