At White Water tonight, all the door, a percentage of bar sales and all bartenders' tips go to a group working with children left orphaned in Haiti (probably this one
). Here's the night's line-up: Magic Hassle, Chris Denny, Jonathan Wilkins, Isaac Alexander and Andy Warr. Duude, 9 p.m., $5.
The Rep's annual “Startin' Early, Staying Late” fund-raiser precedes the theater's fancy-schmancy Saturday night “Saints and Sinners Ball” and aims for a different audience — those who want to support the city's only professional theater company, but can't afford a $300 ticket or don't want to don black tie. At “Startin' Early” at the Governor's Mansion, a $50 ticket scores you hors d'oeuvres, an open bar and music from the Bob Boyd Sounds and an opportunity to bid on a silent auction. Dress is cocktail, 6:30 p.m.
Little Rock's finest jazz act, the Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio, does its monthly night of double duty, starting, as usual, at the Capital Bar and Grill, 5 p.m., and then shifting to the Afterthought, 8 p.m., $5.
Party-style cover band Mr. Lucky returns to Cajun's Wharf, 9:30 p.m., $5.
Revolution hosts a night of local hard-edged rock at Revolution with Calling Drake, Iron Ton and Eddy and the Defiantz, 9 p.m., $5.
At SpeakEasy, local pianist and vocalist John Willis gets an assist from Hanky Pank, 8 p.m., free.
