Also, Smoke and Barrel
was kindly enough to host a three night stand of Little Rock music last week called "They Came From Little Rock!"
with Chris Denny, Jonathan Wilkins & the Reparations, Life Size Pizza, Brother Andy, Frown Pow'r (full disclosure: I'm 1/5 of this band) and The See. Everyone here had a blast and really appreciated everyone's hospitality. Also, we loved showing Fayetteville how to drink.
