Friday’s Music

Mulehead.

Giving you the music a day early:

It has been since August 2010 (Harvest doesn’t count) that Mulehead has graced a Little Rock club stage — when they did for two nights — but the band known for their Arkansas-stamped alt country sound is returning with a show at Stickyz. Brother Andy and His Big Damn Mouth — who kick out their “white trash power pop” (gritty, power rock) — will kick off the music at 9 p.m. with tickets $10 for the 18-and-up show. Mulehead disbanded in 2004, after celebrating the release of their fourth and final full-length album Finer Thing, and has only reformed a handful of times since. The August 2010 reunion shows received rave reviews and sold out both shows. Consider yourself lucky and thankful for this show.

Little Rock’s own jamband extraordinaires Weakness for Blondes chase spontaneous creativity, going down several rabbit holes, scampering after blues rock, jazz and soul with a touch of psychedelic and funk to brew their infectious jamming sound. The band, influenced by the Grateful Dead, The Band, blues, jazz, Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis, will return to a Little Rock stage with a show at White Water Tavern. There is a 9 p.m. start time to the music with a $5 cover.

Local Motives was formed to unify the Little Rock hip-hop scene, and for the second time the local initiative collects a group of local hip-hop and rap artists for a show. This time it’s The Push Part 2: Black Friday Edition at Cornerstone Pub. It’s a 21-and-up show with the music starting at 9 p.m., and a $5 early admission price. Hosted by Osyrus Bolly, the night will include performances by YK (Grim Muzik), Southwest Boaz, Chucc Johnson (4×4 Crew), Aasylum, Yung 2 (Tho’d Studios), North Rock, the legendary Back Yard Entertainment, Parker Brothers and K. Toomer. DJ Fatality will be on the turntables between sets.

Here’s Mulehead with their “Ordinary Day”:
