PEABODY RIVERTOP PARTY
8 p.m., Peabody Hotel. $5.
The opportunity to drink and dance among a throng high above the river, usually with a cool breeze blowing: It's yet another sign that summer isn't only upon us, but ready to take off full blast. The six-week Peabody Rivertop Party series — Little Rock's answer to Memphis Peabody's legendary, generations-old Rooftop Parties — kicks off this Friday with Tragikly White, Little Rock's premier party band, who can break out Garth Brooks' “Friends in Low Places” one minute and Kanye's “Stronger” the next. Attendance is several hundred a week. Join the crowd; if you RSVP by 5 p.m. Friday on the party's Facebook page, you can get in for free.
