Wednesday and Thursday’s Music

Okkervil River at Rev Room on Wednesday.


Okkervil River comes to the Rev Room. The newest album from this Austin, Texas-based, folk-propelled indie rock group led by Will Sheff is The Silver Gymnasium, a concept album based on lead singer Sheff’s pre-adolescence years in New Hampshire. Opening is Torres, the indie rock music of singer-songwriter Mackenzie Scott. Check out her slow-burning “Honey.” The music starts at 8:30 p.m. with tickets $15 for the all-ages show.

That dusky-voiced, folk singer/songwriter Richard Buckner released his newest album Surrounded in early Septmeber, and the collection was a follow-up to his 2011 album Our Blood. The rootsy music of Buckner is a somber stroll through the Dust Bowl of America, filled with intimate tales of melancholy characters over bittersweet, acoustic melodies and delivered with a voice that is hauntingly plaintive yet soothing. Buckner comes to White Water Tavern for a night of his timeless American music. Opening the show is Adam Faucett, who brings along with mixture of folk, blues and rock ‘n’ roll. The music starts at 9 p.m.


Yo Gotti, the Memphis rapper known for hits such as “5 Star” and “Act Right,” arrives back in Little Rock with a stop at Juanita’s for a night of his Dirty South rhymes and beats. The show starts at 9 p.m. with the doors opening at 8 p.m. Tickets are $30 in advance. Joining Gotti is YG, Ca$hout, Shy Glizzy and Zed Zilla.
