LUKE HUNSICKER BENEFIT
9 p.m., Juanita's. $10.
On one hand, it sucks that these are happening; on the other, I wish they'd happen all the time. These shows bring out both the better angels of our nature and the better bands of Little Rock. It's the third in a series of fund-raisers for Luke Hunsicker, the American Princes bassist who's battling the whole nine yards of brain cancer, a pretty pricy endeavor by anyone's pocketbook. But not only is it a helluva time for a helluva nice guy, it also offers up a pupu platter of local bands. This time around, the benefit features honey-harmonied indie-pop with Whale Fire; the immediate college rockers Bear Colony; rural garage ne'er-do-wells Frown Pow'r; bullseye Americana from Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass; hands-down, this writer's favorite Arkansas band, Life Size Pizza and — you know them, love them — Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth.
