Friday’s Music


Giving you the music a day early:

Flaw is cancelled.

Kentucky alternative metal band Flaw formed in the mid-1990s and released a series of independent albums. But it wasn’t until their Universal Records release Through the Eyes that the band became nationally know, thanks to a string of mainstream rock hits such as “Payback.” While the band broke up earlier this century, the band has since regrouped and is back on the road, including a stop at Juanita’s. The doors open at 8 p.m. with the music at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 day of show with the night opening with Osceola rock band Finding Jimmy Hoffa and Flaw touring partners Saturate, a Baytown, Texas, hard rock band.

Hot Springs industrial rock band The Vail comes to Downtown Music with a couple of other local acts: central Arkansas hardcore band My Hands to War and North Little Rock punk cabaret band Flameing Daeth Fearies. After playing the part of KISS at a local Halloween party, the Fearies continue with their Get Your Red Wings Tour 2010 to celebrate the release of their newest EP, Lightish Red, a collection of tunes showcasing the band’s “comedic cabaret pop punk” sound. The music starts at 8 p.m. with a $6 cover. Also on the bill is West Memphis hardcore metal outfit An American Tragedy.

Perhaps the best trumpet player in Arkansas, Rodney Block, returns to one of his favorite haunts with a visit to The Afterthought. Block’s live act is a stone cold, cool fusion of jazz, hip-hop, R&B, funk and soul. The music starts at 9 p.m. with cover $10.

Here’s Flaw with their “My Letter”:
