  • The Smiths are not playing Friday White Water Tavern, BUT, The Canehill Engagement will play the songs of The Smiths Friday at White Water Tavern.

WHITE WATER TAVERN HALLOWEEN COVERUP
9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $5.

The great Halloween tradition of dressing up like another band and playing a bunch of their songs continues this week. If you've never been to a coverup show, let me tell you, it's nearly always a great time. Obviously, it helps if you're a fan of the band being coverupped, and this year, White Water Tavern has two nights lined up, with folks from local bands taking on some pretty legendary bands.

On Friday, The Wicked Good and Bryan Frazier take on The Smashing Pumpkins, while The Canehill Engagement brings us the hits from those sublimely maudlin Mancs, The Smiths, and Matt Quinn, David Slade and Adam Sweet tackle the timeless pop-punk of Jawbreaker.

On Saturday, Big Silver, Norman Williamson and Phillip Huddleston bring the Boss, and The See's Joe Yoder and Eric Morris, along with Gaines Fricke, James Szenher and Charles Lyford take on Pearl Jam's catalog.

  • Shoog Radio kicks off Arkansas music series at the Afterthought with The Casual Pleasures and Pockets.

    September 29, 2014
    Local DJs Kara Bibb and Aaron Sarlo are staying busy. As if putting together a weekly playlist full of exclusively Arkansas artists and bands for their Tuesday afternoon Shoog Radio show on KABF wasn’t enough, they’ve just rolled out a new weekly live concert series at The Afterthought featuring some of Arkansas’ best local bands /more/
  • Guest Mix: Pepperboy

    September 29, 2014
    Here's a collection of 9 records that's really had an effect on my career. These records have touched me in many ways ... some are very personal and even disturbing at times when I hear them, because of certain situations I been through where those records were playing in the background. I'm proud to share this 9 track soundtrack with Arkansas Times because these records mean so much to me and I hope you enjoy!!! /more/
  • Guest Mix: Andrew Morgan

    September 23, 2014
    This mix came about like most do: I grabbed a stack of records — some recent acquisitions some not so — that included tunes I'm currently obsessed with, put a tape in the deck, started mixing without a plan, and then tried to stop by the time the tape ran out. /more/
  • New music from Bombay Harambee, 'Check, Check, Checkmate'

    September 23, 2014
    Little Rock's Bombay Harambee, who played in this year's Times showcase and released a great EP in February, were nice enough to give us an early copy of their new single, "Check, Check, Checkmate." /more/
  • New mixtape from Lo Thraxx, 'Deep Waters'

    September 18, 2014
    Little Rock's Lo Thraxx has been talking up his next release, "$harkansas," for some time now, but this morning he abruptly dropped a different mixtape altogether, "Deep Waters," apparently a prequel or, in his words, "lay up drills" to warm up for the real thing. /more/
  • Guest Mix: The Coasts

    September 17, 2014
    In addition to the new and amazing Ty Segall album, here are some songs that we're currently listening to and passing back and forth as we're working on songs for our new LP. Some of them are real jammers and some are more low key, so just sit back and let the vibes do their thing. And don't think about the fact that we just said "vibes." /more/
  • Live Review: Seattle Hip-Hop Duo Shabazz Palaces Brings Sonic Attack to Rev Room

    September 17, 2014
    A crowd of about 60 (impressive for a Monday night) gathered at the Rev Room to be collectively slain by Shabazz Palaces’ deadly combo of droning bass, carefully layered sonic textures, live polyrhythmic percussion, and sharp rhymes. It was a flawless victory. /more/
  • Live Review: Eric Church and Dwight Yoakam at Verizon

    September 15, 2014
    Apparently Dwight Yoakam’s acting career is sufficiently slack enough that Friday night saw him opening for bro-country kingpin Eric Church at Verizon Arena. Hollywood is taking Yoakam in small enough doses (he has a recurring part on CBS’s “Under the Dome”) that he can lend his considerable talents to country music, which currently can use any kind of flavor it can get. /more/
  • Guest Mix: Adam Faucett

    September 8, 2014
    For the last seven years it seems most of my time has been spent in my van. Before that it seems most of it was spent on a platform in Mars like temperatures waiting on the blue line. Before that it seems much of it was in my kitchen doing paintings for school. My point is, the songs best suited for a hangover are best suited for the Snake. /more/

  • Hot Springs firing range declared a "Muslim free zone" by its owner

    The owner of The Gun Cave Indoor Shooting Range in Hot Springs, Jan Morgan, announced yesterday that she is banning the presence of Muslims in her business. Her reasoning: "Why would I hand guns and ammunition to people whose religion commands them to kill me and my non-muslim patrons?" OK, let's get that lawsuit rolling.
  • Americans for Prosperity sends out hundreds of thousands of mailers with fake voter registration information in North Carolina

    North Carolina's ABC affiliate reports on hundreds of thousands of mailers with false information about voter registration sent by Americans for Prosperity, the right-wing advocacy group backed by the Koch brothers. The official-looking mailers gave the wrong deadline for voter registration and told people to sign up with the wrong state agency. The mailers also gave the wrong office for questions regarding voter registration, the wrong zip code for turning in a voter registration form, and inaccurate information about how people would be notified of their precinct.

  • Mark Pryor highlights Cotton votes against Paycheck Fairness and Violence Against Women Acts

    Sen. Mark Pryor today began what the campaign is dubbing a "Women for Pryor" statewide tour. Pryor is highlighting Cotton's votes against paycheck fairness legislation and the Violence Against Women Act (all together now: the only member of the Arkansas congressional delegation to do so). Pryor was joined by his mother, the former first lady of Arkansas Barbara Pryor, at this morning's event at the Fresco Cafe in Fayetteville. Events will be held across the state to mobilize women in support of Pryor to vote.
