Giving you the music a day early:
It’s a Sunday of local music at Juanita’s with a showcase presented by Afton Push Play. On the bill are Little Rock hardcore metal outfit Rivalry for Ruin; Sleep Danger Supermarket; Jessica Seven, a Hot Springs band that ties rock, industrial, metal and funk into their potent musical brew; Arkansas Christian alternative rock band Rosefire; Little Zero and Gone Was Here; Little Rock progressive/alternative rock band (and big fans of Pink Floyd) Das Gift; and Judsonia thrash metal act Fall of Sanity. The all-ages afternoon and evening of music begins at 5 p.m. with advance tickets $8 and day of show tickets $12.
Canvascommunity, a gathering of the United Methodist Church, is holding a screening of Brandt Russo’s film Adopt A Jesus, about the young minister from Louisiana who travels the country in a bus powered by cooking oil to help the poor and homeless. The event will include a question-and-answer session. Russo will show his Skid Row L.A. photo exhibition at 3 p.m. followed by light hors d’oeuvres and a showing of Adopt A Jesus at 5:30 p.m. The film is not appropriate for all ages. The weekend’s events are free, but a $5 donation or a donation of bottled water, which will be distributed to the homeless, is requested.
Here’s the trailer for Adopt A Jesus:
