- KERBY: At White Water.
Tuesday, Jan. 30, finds us between two worlds as the week wears on and Arkansas Rockers Revue founder T.J. Deeter of the White Water Tavern moves on to Localist pastures. New management will take over the White Water lease from Larry “Goose” Garrison in February, and the change coincided with Deeter wanting to focus more attention on the Localist, a web-based magazine.
Deeter has one last all-local, giant of a show up his sleeve for the final Tuesday of the month, however, including intensely ’80s synth vibe with Browningham, acoustic country with Kevin Kerby, reggaed post punk with the Reds, feel-good indie pop rockers the Easys, sometime trip but mostly hip hip-hop 607, old-is-fresh indie with the Contingencies, punk with the Crisco Kids, smoky-voiced indie with the Moving Front, the Bad Omen Band and Brian Frazier.
The show starts at 10 p.m., and as with all White Water’s Tuesday night all-Arkansas, all-original, all-genre lineups, is free.
Sister Hazel, which soared up the pop charts in the mid-’90s, appears at the Village on Friday, Jan. 26. Tickets are $15 in advance and $17 at the door. Showtime is 9 p.m.
Also, the Village has gotten the paperwork completed again and now has its alcohol permit to serve beer.
The Village is at the corner of Asher and South University avenues.
