Grand Serenade, a brooding indie-rock quartet, played before a studio audience at "AETN Presents" in July, and on Friday, Nov. 23, at 6:30 p.m., that performance will air on KETS. All the guys in Grand Serenade are bikers, known for traipsing around the country on vintage motorcycles as much as for their tunes, which have garnered comparisons to Nada Surf and David Bowie. In September, Grand Serenade's bassist, Trevor Ware was hit by a drunk driver and seriously injured while riding his bike. Friday's air date was scheduled, in part, so that Ware could watch while surrounded by family. The performance showcases new material, rather than previous releases. Beyond Ware, Grand Serenade includes: Kyle Mays, guitar and vocals; Jordan Trotter, guitar; and Justin Seymore, drums. "AETN Presents" is Arkansas's answer to Austin City Limits and showcases live performances by Arkansas musicians. More info here.
