ECLIPSE GLASSES8 p.m., Arkansas Flag and Banner. $5.
What would you say if I told you that you could hear new, sure-to-be-compelling local music and support a good cause all in the same three hours? What would you expect that to cost? Fifty dollars? One hundred dollars? How ’bout $5, like it says an inch above? That’s right, for half a sawbuck you can support the Backyard Garden Project and the Arkansas Sustainability Network and catch Eclipse Glasses, the new local act that includes vets of dozens of great local bands — Kyle Carpenter, Lorenza Harrington, Colin Miles, Andrew Morgan and Zach Reeves. This is the band’s debut show. Morgan says they’ll be doing an amalgamation of “funk, soul, electro, Afrobeat, reggae, weirdo disco.” I’ve got high hopes. The Backyard Garden Project is an initiative that’s helping folks create backyard gardens, particularly those who are clients of local foodbanks. The Arkansas Sustainability Network, like its name suggests, is a non-profit aimed at fostering sustainable development. All ages welcome.
