Giving you the music a day early:
She’s not quite 22 years old and she possesses a pixie haircut, but there’s a demon or two inside Ohio alt country-ish, indie folk singer/songwriter Jessica Lea Mayfield. One can’t help but feel that way when listening to the artist’s haunting and captivating, lo-fi folk rock tunes. Mayfield released her second album earlier this year and is on the road promoting it, including a stop at Juanita’s for a night of her dark music. The doors open at 8 p.m. with the music at 9 p.m. Cover is $10 with opening act Ferraby Lionheart, a Los Angeles singer/songwriter.
That Pink Floyd reunion that no one thinks will happen might just happen. At least there’s a 1 percent chance after David Gilmour played “Comfortably Numb” with Roger Waters at Waters’ performance of The Wall at O2 Arena in London in May. The other living member of Floyd, Nick Mason, later joined the pair for “Outside the Wall.” But if you are not a betting music fan the closest you might get to seeing Pink Floyd in action is Floyd tribute band Set the Controls at Rev Room. So experience the warm thrill of the band’s sonic experimentation and atmospheric rock with the six guys of Set the Controls. There’s no opening act with the music starting at 8:30 p.m. Tickets for the all-ages show are $8 in advance and $10 day of show.
McAllen, Texas, screamo act Scarlett O’ Hara lost their bass player so they are no longer part of The Metal East Tour coming to Downtown Music. Now the weight of creating a brutal show falls on the shoulders of Florida metalcore outfit We Are Defiance. Shouldn’t be too much of a problem though as the six-member band is touring in support of their debut album Trust in Few and know a thing or two about creating heavy, heavy music. Also on the bill are California metalcore act Casino Madrid and Texas metalcore band Wolves Among Men. Hot Springs hardcore metal act Through The Looking Glass will provide local support. The doors open at 6 p.m. with a $8 cover.
Here’s Jessica Lea Mayfield with her “Our Hearts Are Wrong”:
