Giving you the music a day early:
Starting with 1962’s “Don’t Make Me Over,” Dionne Warwick started charting hit R&B, soul and adult contemporary songs, from “Walk On By,” “I Say a Little Prayer” and “This Girl’s in Love With You” to “I’ll Never Love This Way Again,” “Heartbreaker” and “That’s What Friends Are For.” She has won Grammys, recorded No. 1 hits and had more than 50 Top 100 hits. And now Warwick brings all that star power to Reynolds Performance Hall on the University of Central Arkansas campus for a special night of music. Tickets are $30, $35 and $40 with the music starting at 7:30 p.m.
Hawthorne Heights‘ newest release is the nine-track EP Hate, a collection of tunes that are heavier than anything the band has ever done but still with plenty of pop punk rhythms to go along with the post-hardcore rage. It’s an EP that more than recaptures the screamo nature of the band’s early work. The Ohio band is on the road, including a stop at Juanita’s. It’s an all-ages show with the doors opening at 8 p.m. and the music starting at 9 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. The opening acts are a couple of local acts: Sherwood progressive rock act Boom the Wheel and North Little Rock cabaret punk sensation Flameing Daeth Fearies.
