Giving you the music a day early:
It’s hard deciding what one calls the band These United States. Rock ‘n’ roll? Indie rock? Folk? Garage rock? Alt country? Psychedelic rock? Whatever one calls the music that the five guys from Kentucky, New York and North Carolina make, let it be known the band’s music is rambunctious and toasts just being alive. These United States comes to Stickyz. The opening act is to be announced, but expect the music at 8:30 p.m. with a $7 cover for the 18-and-up show.
There are eight more days of the Arkansas State Fair and all that entails: food, rides, fun, games and, of course, the music on the Wendy’s Main Stage. There are two great acts tonight with a 7 p.m. performance by Confederate Railroad followed by the Marshall Tucker Band at 8:30 p.m. Confederate Railroad straddles the blurry line between outlaw country and Southern rock with well-known tunes such as “Trashy Women.” The Marshall Tucker Band is one of the pioneers of the Southern rock sound, with a number of memorable classic rock tunes, including “Heard It in a Love Song.” Admission is free to the shows with paid fair admission which is $8 for adults, $4 for children ages 6 to 12 and senior citizens ages 60 and over, and free to children ages 6 and under. Parking at the fairgrounds is $5 per vehicle.
