Giving you the music a day early:
Jeez, it was about time. It has been since December that the self-proclaimed King of the Country Western Troubadours played Little Rock. Fortunately, Unknown Hinson returns with a show at Juanita’s. The doors open at 7:30 p.m. with the music starting at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $18 in advance and $20 day of show. Hinson is “Dracula’s nasty little brother who spent some hard years drinking and working as a carnival barker for a second-rate freak show” and plays “country-and-western tinged psychobilly.” Hinson is a vampire-dressing parody of ’50s and ’60s country singers, cranking out his music while dressed in a campy, white-trash persona.
