Fomenting.

FRIDAY 6/19

Texas singer/songwriters Adam Carroll and Owen Temple return to White Water Tavern, hopefully to sing songs from their recent tribute album to Gary Floater, a made-up Nashville “great” who represents the cliche and jingoism long celebrated in Music City; it's sharp, funny stuff, 9 p.m., $5.

Hugely popular Memphis-based '80s cover act Venus Mission packs them in at Sticky Fingerz, 9:30 p.m., $7.

The Dill Pickers, formerly known as Duck Soup, offer old-time style music at Satellite Cafe, 9 p.m., free.


SATURDAY 6/20

It's more Spring Break Ft. Lauderdale than Father's Day weekend Little Rock, but kids want to undress and grind in bubbles everywhere. On Saturday, Juanita's and Jester's Entertainment host a summertime bacchanal they're calling, simply, Foam Party. The gist is pretty simple. The club pumps gallons of foamy bubbles onto its dance floor. People take off as many clothes as they can get away with--admission is cheaper if you come wearing a bathing suit--and dance and, um, stuff, under the cover mounds of foam. DJs Jared Lawler, Ewell and Sleepy Genius provide the soundtrack. The party starts at 9 p.m. Admission is $10 with a suit, $12 without. Those 18 and older will be admitted.

Mississippi jam band Electric Mudd is the latest act to play the Travelers' post-game concert series in Dickey-Stephen's beer garden; it starts immediately after the game and is free with a ticket.

Rowdy country rockers the Good Time Ramblers fill in for Billy Joe Shaver, who was a late cancellation at Revolution, 9 p.m.

Eclipse Glasses guitarist Collin Miles offers a solo set at Satellite, 9 p.m., free.

Nashville modern rock act Autovaughn share a bill at Sticky Fingerz with local prog rockers An Orangutan and Fayetteville's Benjamin Del Shreve, 9 p.m., $6.

Pianist Gerald Johnson and co. hold it down at the Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7.

At Discovery, Platinumb spins in the Disco, while Michael Shane keeps it moving in the lobby, midnight, $10.

SUNDAY 6/21

The Little Rock Pride Picnic celebrates the local LBGQT community at Allsopp Park, with a DJ, the first annual “equality games,” free food, 12:30 p.m., free.
