Friday’s Music

Randy Rogers Band.

Giving you the music a day early:

Fans of Red Dirt music — a crossing of Texas country and rock rhythms powering storytelling tunes and party anthems — will be present at Rev Room as the River Market venue welcomes the return of Randy Rogers Band for one of their biannual local shows. (Or is it triannual? Does it really matter because local crowds never tire of the rowdy Texas five piece?) The band fronted by its namesake continues to tour behind their August 2010 release Burning the Day, which hit No. 2 on both the iTunes chart and Billboard‘s Country Albums chart. The opening act is to be announced, but expect the music at 9 p.m. with tickets for the 18-and-up show $20.

This summer’s Peabody Rivertop Party series is slowly coming to an end, but not before an appearance by Hip Kitty, a Nashville, Tenn., rock band that plays the rooftop overlooking the Arkansas River. Expect a night of energetic rock created by a quartet led by lead singer Jen Halverson as Hip Kitty unleashes their self-described “all-American, sexy-ass rock.” As with every Peabody Rivertop Party this year, the night will be hosted by Epiphany as he emcees the night and spins as well. The party starts at 8 p.m. with a $5 cover for the 21-and-up show that goes until after midnight.

Super Happy Fun Land is not some magical land filled with unicorns, rainbows and leprechaun’s serving pints of ice-cold beer. No, that’s some other magical place that we really hope does exist. What Super Happy Fun Land actually is is a new art gallery/music venue at 608 Main St. in downtown Little Rock. So that space is no longer the ACAC. Anyway, for a Saturday night show, Super Happy Fun Land welcomes San Francisco folk/punk/experimental/rock band Zoo. No word on time or cover.

Here’s Randy Rogers Band with their “Buy Myself a Chance”:
