Giving you the music a day early:
Since opening for Deer Tick at Sticky Fingerz in July 2009, folk rockers Dawes have returned a couple of times to Little Rock to display their gorgeous, California hills hymn. And the band is returning yet again, this time with a show at Sticky Fingerz as headliners. Cover is set at $10 for the 21-and-up show. And even better? One of the opening acts is The Romany Rye, the combination of Los Angeles folk rocker Luke MacMaster backed by the Little Rock foursome of Ryan Hitt, Judson Spillyards, Joshua Spillyards and Whitman Bransford with their chugging alt-country tunes. Also included on the bill is Peter Wolf Crier, the indie duo of Peter Pisano and Brian Moen.
100.3 The Edge presents Canadian alternative rock band Finger Eleven at Juanita’s. The Juno Award-winning act is known for such modern rock hits as “One Thing,” “Paralyzer” and “Living in a Dream,” a tune from their newest album Life Turns Electric. The opening act is Long Island alternative rockers The Sleeping, with their roaring, post-hardcore flavored tunes such as “Don’t Hold Back” and “Bomb the World.” Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the music at 7 p.m. for the all-ages show. Tickets are $17 advance and $20 day of show.
