Giving you the music a day early:
Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds sounds like a band that knows a thing or two about mixing in some gritty soul music with The Band-inspired rock ‘n’ roll and a taste of funk, and throwing it all down in an electrifying live show. And that’s just what the Brooklyn outfit — led by Sister Sparrow (lead singer Arleigh Kincheloe) — will do during an early-week visit to Stickyz. Bring dancing shoes. The opening act is The Wandas with their Boston-bred, Americana-fueled rock, and the music starting at 8:30 p.m. with a $5 cover for the 18-and-up show.
The last time The Dillinger Escape Plan came to town, it was as a support act for Massachusetts’ Killswitch Engage at the now-shuttered The Village in January 2008. It was a show presented by 100.3 The Edge so it makes perfect sense that the Little Rock new rock station presents The Dillinger Escape Plan’s return to Little Rock, this time at Downtown Music and as a headliner. Expect pummeling, smart progressive hardcore music. The doors open at 7 p.m. with an 8 p.m. start time to the music. Tickets are $17 in advance and $20 day of show. Central Arkansas post-hardcore band My Hands to War opens the show.
