Giving you the music a day early:
KSSN 96 FM presents a visit from Thompson Square at Juanita’s, as the husband-and-wife duo of Keifer and Shawna Thompson, a couple who fell in love immediately over a game of pool, bring their country to Little Rock. It also helps the two artists have deep musical roots, with Shawna Thompson raised on Reba McEntire, Alabama and other ’80s and ’90s country superstars, and Keifer Thompson loving musicians from Roger Miller and Merle Haggard to Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty. The couple’s second single, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not,” hit the Top 40 of the country single charts. The doors open at 9 p.m. with the music at 10 p.m. Cover is $10.
So imagine Motley Crue and Poison on tour together. Well, that’s not happening — at least not right now — but the Revolution Music Room is promising a night of fun as Motley Crue tribute band Red White and Crue, and Poison tribute band Poison’D play the River Market venue. Also expect to the sleazy best of ’80s rock, from “Kickstart My Heart” to “Nothin’ but a Good Time,” and countless other glam and hair metal classics. The all-ages show kicks off at 9 p.m. with tickets $10.
The heavy bass music of the DJ named Aaron Clevenger by his parents but who goes by AC Slater visits The Village. The Brooklyn artist is a well-known remixer and producer as well, working with artists such as Moby on “The Stars,” and starting the Party Like Us record label. The doors open at 8 p.m. with the music starting at 8:30 p.m. Cover is $15.
Here’s Thompson Square with their “Are You Gonna Kiss Me or Not”:
