9 p.m., Cajun's. $5.
Local stalwart Shannon Boshears
and her band celebrate the release of her sophomore CD, “Black Mascara,” the follow-up to her 2001 release, “Chicksinger,” at what's certain to be a memorable show at Cajun's Wharf. The Little Rock native was raised on blues, country, rock and gospel. For the past eight years, Boshears has worked with the same band members — Charlie Macom on drums, Lori Stidham on bass and vocals and her nearly-20-year accompanist Walter K on guitar. Other musicians featured on the record are Mark Sallings of the Famous Unknowns on saxophone and harmonica, Matt Dickson on saxophone and Becky Haynes on African djembe drum. “Black Mascara” will be available on CD at all Boshears' live shows and also can be purchased or downloaded from her Web site at www.shannonboshears.com
after Nov. 8. Proceeds from the CD sales at the release party will be donated to Hope Equity at www.hopeequity.org
, an online philanthropy tool created by Heifer International Foundation.
