Giving you the music a day early:
Glen Campbell, an Arkansas native known for his classic ’60s and ’70s tunes such as “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman,” “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Southern Nights,” returns to The Natural State for a performance at Reynolds Performance Hall. Tickets for the Country Music Hall of Famer’s show as part of the University of Central Arkansas’ Public Appearances’ Nostalgia Series are $30, $35 and $40 with Campbell being joined by daughter Debby Campbell for the 2 p.m. concert.
Little Rock act Living Sacrifice was one of the pioneers of the Christian metal scene, forming in 1989 with their praise-worthy thrash metal, releasing a number of solid albums and slowly evolving their sound. The group broke up in 2002 but reformed in 2008, and the quartet has a new album out, the January release The Infinite Order, and are on the road, bringing their A Very Metal Christmas Tour to Downtown Music. Supporting acts are Tennessee heavy metal band The Showdown, Atlanta metal band Becoming the Archetype, North Carolina metalcore band To Speak of Wolves and Detroit death metal outfit As They Sleep. The music starts at 6 p.m. with advance tickets $13 and day-of-show tickets $15.
