Taylor Momsen of The Pretty Reckless

Riverfest has had an impact on the music scene in central Arkansas, with some clubs presenting a more limited lineup of entertainment this weekend.

The Pretty Reckless, a band led by 20-year-old Taylor Momsen, better known for her role as Jenny Humphrey on the CW network's Gossip Girl, will perform tonight at the Revolution Room.

Heaven's Basement will open the show at 8:30 p.m.

In her press materials, Momsen says that her life changed when her father took her to see the White Stripes when she was 9 years old. After that, the girl who previously had only been to a Britney Spears concert wanted to play music more like Led Zeppelin's.

She and her band are now touring to promote a debut album Light Me Up.

Admission is $18.

The five-man, one-woman group of multi-instrumentalists was formed in Conway by college students who later moved to Fayetteville.

Stiff Necked Fools will open the show at 9 p.m. Taking their name from a Bob Marley song, the band, based on the Gulf Coast, describes the music as "bayou reggae."

Admission is $7.
