Giving you the music a day early:
Turbid North is a metal band. Three of the members of the quintet call Alaska home. Calling themselves “Alaskan mountain metal” (although they are now based in Fort Worth, and include a Texan and Englishman among their members), Turbid North come to Downtown Music for a early week night of metal that is of the death and doom variety with rhythms influenced by thrash and death metal. Cover is $8 with opening bands to be announced. Doors open at 6 p.m. with a 7 p.m. start time to the music.
There are seven more days of the Arkansas State Fair and all that entails: food, rides, fun, games and, of course, the music. The lone act of the night is Tyrannosaurus Chicken, taking the Wendy’s Main Stage at 7 p.m. Straight out of Fort Smith, the duo plays self-described “freestyle trance Delta blues,” which is really a musical blend of covers of old blues and modern blues tunes, and original songs played with guitar, kick drums, fiddle, harmonica and slide guitar. 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.
