Giving you the music a day early:
Who can forget the warm, California folk pop of “Bubbly”? Not many people. And since that smash, Colbie Caillat has released a number of pop rock hits, including her Grammy winning “Lucky” with Jason Mraz. And Magic Springs Water and Theme Park‘s Summer Concert Series continues with a visit from Caillat. The music starts at 8 p.m. Admission for the music is free with a general admission ticket to the park ($44.99 per adult, and $29.99 per junior — under 48 inches — or senior — 55 or older) or season pass ($59.99). Parking is $10 for a vehicle.
It has been a relatively busy year for sludge-y metal, North Little Rock band Rwake. The band played South by Southwest, and released their newest album Rest on Relapse Records late last year, and Pitchfork called it “ingenious, forward-thinking metal.” Forward-thinking, yes, but also great, such as the 12-minute long “It Was Beautiful, But Now It’s Sour,” a doom-in-slow-motion track that contains a little Southern rock guitar work. The group is playing Rev Room, headlining a show that includes Little Rock doom metal act Pallbearer (who released their debut album Sorrow and Extinction in February), local thrash-powered death metal band Severe Headwound and R.I.O.T.S. It’s an 18-and-up show with the music starting at 9 p.m. Cover is $7 for 21 and up, and $9 for 18 to 20.
