BACK ROOM TO THE MAIN STAGE
8 p.m. Vino's. $5.
Here's the scoop on Back Room to the Main Stage: Each Thursday for four consecutive weeks, up-and-coming bands will face off at Vino's for a chance to win a 10-stack of crispy new hundos (a.k.a., a cool grand or $1,000 U.S.) and a spot playing on the main stage at the Arkansas State Fair, opening for The See on Oct. 17.
The four finalists will square off at a date not yet determined to compete for overall winner.
This week's lineup includes Little Rock roots/folk rockers This Holy House, Conway-based classic rock revivalists Neon Skin and Little Rock MC Mista Cade. The Arkansas Times is a co-sponsor of this event.
