Giving you the music day early:
Here’s how Hull, a stoner/blues metal band visiting Downtown Music, describes themselves: “Forged in the sweat-laden depths of darkest Brooklyn … Hull materializes as a massive entity storming stages and immersing their audiences in a blanket of grandiose down-tuned compositions. A shifting fault line of decibel heavy harmony, this collective force converges in a collision of thrash, doom, classic rock and formal orchestral works.” There is no reason to not check out something that sounds that awesome. The doors open at 8 p.m. with the music starting soon afterward. Cover is $8 at the door. Fellow New York City black metal band Mutilation Rites opens along with local support from Little Rock progressive-flavored post-rock act Mainland Divide.
J Roddy Walston & The Business are a rock ‘n’ roll band, and fresh off their appearance at the Lucero Family Picnic, the band hits Little Rock and White Water Tavern right in the jaw with their finely tuned rock. The show starts at 9 p.m. with a $10 cover.
North Carolina’s Delta Rae is beautiful harmonies atop a sound that is a mingling of rock, folk, piano-pop, gospel, country and blues. North Little Rock Americana artist Audrey Dean Kelley is the opening act for the band’s stop at Juanita’s. The doors open at 8 p.m. with the music starting soon afterward. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 day of show.
Fresh off five SXSW appearances in three days (including the Rachael Ray House Party), Philadelphia-based rock ‘n’ roll band Toy Soldiers is working its way back home with a local stop at Vino’s. The doors open at 8 p.m. with Juston Stens, Dr. Dog’s former drummer who just released his debut, full-length album of rock ‘n’ roll gems Trash or Treasure, kicking off the show.
Here’s J Roddy Walston & The Business with their “Used to Did”:
