Giving you the music a day early:
It’s a taste of “front-porch, whiskey-swilling, foot-stomping, gypsy, punk, country, grumble, boogie” music that Shreveport’s Dirtfoot will unleash when the band — throwing guitar, banjo, saxophone, xylophone, upright bass, percussion, drums and harmonized vocals into a boiling pot to create their way-far-out acoustic music — visits Sticky Fingerz. It’s going to be one serious hoedown, the kind that makes your heart flutter like you’re in love and your feet dance like they’re demon possessed, with the opening music being supplied by Arkansas’ own Mountain Sprout, an act that mixes insurgent Americana with psychobilly and bluegrass. The show starts at 9:30 p.m. Ticket price is to be announced for the 21-and-up show.
If teen twins Josh and Zach Carter weren’t a country music duo with an industry behind their multimedia-storming career, including a hit producer, a top-dog agency and a veteran publicist, they’d probably star in a Disney sitcom titled … I don’t know. How about The Suite Life of Josh and Zach. But they are a country music duo, albeit with dashing, youthful good looks that teen girls go cuckoo for, so expect a dose of slick country music when the Carter Twins visit the Revolution Music Room, including their almost hit song “Heart Like Memphis.” The opening act is to be announced, but expect the music at 9 p.m. with a $8 cover for the all-ages show.
Here’s a bit of post-hardcore music soap opera news: Craig Owens is out and former Yesterday’s Rising singer Brandon Bolmer is in as lead singer of Chiodos as the band plays The Village. Expect the same mixture of singing and screaming, along with brutal guitar rhythms. Joining the Michigan band will be Missouri outfit Machree, with their combination punch of post-hardcore and progressive rock, and two local bands: Safe to Shore, a Little Rock group that mixes hardcore punk with a more pop punk vibe, and Believe the Hype, a Little Rock act coming together from the metalcore and hardcore scenes. The doors open at 7 p.m. with a 7:30 p.m. start time to the music. General admission tickets are $12 advance and $15 at the door.
