Giving you the music a day early:
The news release announcing Detroit/London/Nashville, Tenn., rock ‘n’ roll outfit Deadstring Brothers‘ visit to Sticky Fingerz states the band is a “little rough and tumble … roots rock drawing from Muscle Shoals, soul and blues in one fell swoop. … They rock, pretty much.” Sounds like a good enough time. Drawing comparisons to The Rolling Stones circa Exile on Main St., Deadstring Brothers will headline a show that starts at 9 p.m. with unannounced special guests. Cover is $7 for the 21-and-up show. Relix said the band has studied at “The Keith Richards Academy of Pick Harmonics and String Bends. Chuck Leavell’s Institute of Insane Keyboarding. Patsy Cline’s Honkytonk Heartbreak Clinic.”
The Nightmare River Band is a New York City quartet who crank out boot-stomping, punk-flavored country rock about drinking, loving and losing, and the outfit is making an early week appearance in Little Rock, playing Juanita’s. Opening the show is Little Rock’s Mandy McBryde, an acoustic country singer/songwriter who sometimes writes sad songs. The all-ages show starts at 9 p.m. with a $7 cover.
