Giving you the music a day early:
Much like their New Orleans party rock brethren Cowboy Mouth, Dash Rip Rock is another one of those bands that have seemingly been around forever, having fun and kicking out their swampy version of Southern rock, rockabilly and punk. (And Mouth ringleader Fred LeBlanc was actually an early member of the legendary south Louisiana trio.) Today, the rowdy live act is still fronted by longtime member Bill Davis, electrifying audiences with their bar rock and good-timing tunes such as “Let’s Go Smoke Some Pot.” Dash Rip Rock plays Sticky Fingerz. Opening the show will be Little Rock’s own gulch rockers Dangerous Idiots, or, as they describe themselves: “the Gulch Rock sensation right HERE from LIVER ROCK, Arkansas!” Expect a Dangerous Idiots debut album soon, featuring the tunes “He Who Has The Information Is The Leader,” “Can I Get A Role Model?” and “Less For You.”
The System of Freaks Tour blows into Juanita’s featuring headliner Mary Magdalan, a Long Beach, Calif., trio known for their crazy collection of metal, electronica, punk and hip-hop, and fronted by their namesake Mary Magdalan. Also on the bill are Minnesota metal band Blue Felix, a band titled Ninja Doom and Conway down-tempo metal act Crankbait. The all-ages show starts at 9 p.m. with a $10 cover.
Do the Eagles appearing at Verizon Arena really need a description? The quartet of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, plus accompanying musicians?
