Thursday’s Music

Cindy Woolf.

Giving you the music a day early:

Ozark folk rocker Cindy Woolf returns to The Afterthought with the music starting at 8 p.m. with a $5 cover. Arkansas born but living now in southwest Missouri, the folk artist learned to appreciate American roots music while listening to her father play guitar in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. Woolf now mixes in pop choruses and twangy country when singing in her angelic voice about love, traveling and trains.

Let Sticky Fingerz co-owner and all-around music lover Chris King do the talking on why one should see Magic Hassle and their catchy blend of indie rock at Sticky Fingerz. Straight from the Sticky Fingerz website: “Honestly, we don’t think Little Rock gets enough Magic Hassle. They are undoubtedly gifted musicians who we are always excited to have on our stage. We have witnessed a few dropped jaws during their performance.” Good enough reason? American Gods, a Memphis rock act with an appreciation of Brit pop, shoegazing music and even Guns N’ Roses, is the opening act, with the music starting at 9:30 p.m. and cover $5 for the 21-and-up show.
