Monday’s Music

Grateful Dead.

Giving you the music a day early:

Perhaps Little Rock is a Grateful Dead town. At least enough for Stickyz‘s popular monthly event Grateful Dead Mondays to become a weekly event. The music — Dead tunes and favorite popular hits often performed by the Dead — is provided by tribute band Touch, playing the music of the Grateful Dead or the Jerry Garcia Band. And this is not just some regular Dead tribute act, this is four crack musicians channeling the spirit of the Dead: Robert “Frisbee” Coleman is on Hammond organ, keyboard and vocals; Tyndall Jackson of Mojo Depot is on guitar and vocals; Jason Adams of Mojo Depot is on drums; and Jimmy Lynn of the Joe Pitts Band is on bass. There’s no opening act, just the grand, good-timing music of the Grateful Dead starting around 8 p.m. (and going till 11:30 p.m. or later) with a $5 cover for the 18-and-up show. Expect “Scarlet Begonias,” “Truckin,” “Uncle John’s Band” and more.

Here’s the Grateful Dead with their “Ripple”:

Matthew Mayfield.

Giving you the music a day early:

Carbon Leaf, the Richmond, Va., rock band of Barry Privett, Carter Gravatt, Jason Neal, Jon Markell and Terry Clark, arrives at Juanita’s. The band is known for mixing in a little Celtic and bluegrass flavor into their mainstream rock sound, including penny whistle, mandolin and bagpipes. Birmingham, Ala., singer/songwriter Matthew Mayfield is the opening act with his rootsy rock ‘n’ roll kicking off the night at 9 p.m. and the doors opening at 8 p.m. Cover is $10.

It has been a long, hot summer and it ain’t over with yet, but at least Mondays at Stickyz have been cooler this summer with the River Market’s Grateful Dead Mondays. The monthly series is a recreation — albeit on a smaller scale — of the parking lot and live music of a Dead show. Touch — Little Rock musicians Robert “Frisbee” Coleman, Adam Nelson, Scott Southern and Jimmy Lynn — performs Grateful Dead tunes, covers of the Dead made popular by others and Jerry Garcia tunes, and other Dead-related activities go on. Grateful Dead Mondays opens at 7 p.m. with the music at 8 p.m. Cover is only $5.… Read more >

In This Moment.

Giving you the music a day early:

Hollywood, Calif.’s In This Moment comes to Downtown Music to showcase their blend of alternative rock with a heavy metal sound, promote their latest album A Star-Crossed Wasteland and also, since their lead singer is Maria Brink, show that women can rock with a tour called Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock: Hell Hath No Fury Tour. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the music at 6:30 p.m., and tickets are $13 in advance and $15 at the door. Of course, it wouldn’t be the Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour if there was only one band present with a hot lead singer, so joining In This Moment will be Tennessee heavy rock act Straight Line Stitch with lead singer Alexis Brown. multinational melodic death metal band System Divide with lead singer Miri Milman and Swedish old-school metal act Sister Sin with lead singer Liv. Local support will be provided by Conway melodic death metal outfit Poisonwood, which is just six dudes and no hot women.
