Certainly you're over your Riverfest hangover by now, right? And you're ready to get out again, right? Well, Amy Brawner has the where, when, why, etc.:
BANG sugar BANG tonight at White Water Tavern. Perfectly bratty punk as only Southern California could produce. Two gentleman and a bass-thumpin’ chick (Exene Cervenka). To their punk credentials: Geza X (the producer-godfather in the 80s of emerging ounk bands bands like the Dead Kennedys’ “Hoilday in Cambodia” and Black Flag) produced their album “Thwak Thawk Go Crazy!!” Sump Pumps will open at 9:30 p.m. And it’s free. We like free.
A full night of acoustic music at Juanita's, a focus on songwriting and writers, strunmming guitar and unplugged ballads with Avi Vinocur from San Francisco and Jason Reischel from New York are playing mid-way here in Little Rock.
For local fans of Sugar and the Raw: Mason and Conrad are expanding their sound, and also are playing, as openers to Ari and Jason. 9 p.m., all ages.
Or if you’re thinking about taking it a little easy: Rusty White on the keys at the Afterthought tonight, no cover. 8 p.m.
Perhaps you’ll be in tonight, here’s a suggestion: how about uning into something completely different: My friends of the Rural War Room radio show will be on tonight, 10 p.m.-midnight on KABF 88.3. An e-mail earlier today informed us to “Prepare for the best of our Japanese Invasion series
tonight. …Tune in to hear the best in Japanese Space Pop, Mutant
New Wave and J-Rock. Cuts from POLYSICS, eX-Girl,
hi-posi, Hanaya, Tokyo Jihen, P-Model, Flex Time, The
Plastics, Shiina Ringo, and Limited Express (has
gone?) will blow your minds from half-way around the
globe. “ We’re convinced. Konnichiwa, Cowboy.
Tomorrow, too many choices: with Blackalicious at Cornerstone, hed (p.e.) at Juanita’s, and bluehouse at Sticky Fingerz. Don’t drink too much Saki.
