BLUES ON THE RIVER
3 p.m. Riverfest Amphitheatre. $25-$35.
One thing is for certain: with this lineup, there's gonna be some lovemaking going on in Little Rock Saturday night. Blues on the River is one for the grown folks, with living legend Clarence Carter headlining.
I first heard Carter on a cassingle of his '90s hit "Strokin." Remember that one, where he asks about where and when you've made love? "Have you ever made love just before breakfast? Have you ever made love while you watched the late, late show? Have you ever made love on a couch?" It's a classic, for sure, but lately I've been digging on his late '60s Atlantic albums. Their stirring blend of blues and R&B sound utterly timeless. But Carter's still got his pipes nowadays, his voice as rich and powerful as it ever was. This will be a big time, for sure.
Some of the other performers include Sweet Angel, from Memphis, Bigg Robb, T.K. Soul, Donnie Ray and more. You can get advance tickets at Butler Furniture, Roger's Furniture, Lindsey's Barbecue, Uncle T's Food Mart, Ugly Mike's and The Record Rack in Pine Bluff or by calling 501-401-0200.
