‘THE BLOODSTONE DIARIES'
9 p.m., Star Bar Lounge. Free.
So I'm not accused of burying the lede: “The Bloodstone Diaries” is a new web series that stars Katy Allen, wife of Kris Allen, and there's a good chance that — ZOMG! — both Allens will be in attendance at this premiere. Other things you should know about the show: The plot follows Bettie (Allen), who comes across “a mysterious jewel with amazing powers” and soon finds herself on the run from a secret group trying to reclaim the stone. It comes from the brain of Arkansas Times TV writer David Koon. Local director Gerry Bruno, who helmed the Times' 48 Hour Film Fest winner, directs. Bryan Stafford, known for his music video work with the Moving Front and American Princes, edits. And Patrick Beam, better known as Patrick the Angry Viewer, stars as a henchman. Koon, Bruno and producers Susan Altrui, Eyren Mills and Eric Wilson are looking for funding to launch the series into broader production. Koon's already written the first season. In full disclosure, the Times is co-sponsoring this premiere. Best show up early; Star Bar isn't huge. LM.
