Giving you the music a day early:
Little Rock’s Swiss Family Knives have some new tunes to unveil, including the eaten alive drive of “Colorblind” and the roaring roll of “Lucky” to add to their collection of indie rock tunes sprinkled with keyboard textures. Expect the quintet — Adam Hogg on keyboards and vocals, Collin Buchanan on guitar, Sean Nadji and bass and vocals, Brian Hughes on drums, and Jeff Lagios on guitar and vocals — to unveil these new tunes during a show at Juanita’s. The party includes Jamie Randolph & The Darkhorse, a Memphis outfit making a name for themselves with their musical melding of indie rock and alt country. The show starts at 9 p.m. with a $6 cover for the 18-and-up show.
T.C. Edwards — the subject of Mike Poe’s long-awaited documentary TC & me … a Little Rockumentary and a heavy metal lover — is celebrating a birthday so Poe is throwing him a party at The Village titled A Little Rock-Umental Occasion while hoping to raise money to finish the project. Invited is a smorgasbord of Little Rock music with hip hop represented by Ear Fear (607 and Bobby) and Epiphany; indie rock by The See; punkabilly by Ace Spade & The Whores of Babylon, and Josh the Devil and the Sinners; garage-y punk by Crisco Kids; metal by Iron Tongue and Zucura; and DJ G-Force on the turntables. The all-ages party kicks off at 8 p.m. with a $10 cover, and the occasion is also a ’80s theme night party, with patrons asked to dress as their favorite ’80s icon, with winners receiving killer prize packages.
Here’s a shot of Epiphany in action with his tune “5 Dollas”:
