TREVOR WARE FUNDRAISER ART SHOW
8 p.m. White Water Tavern. Donations.

It's been a little more than four months since Little Rock musician Trevor Ware (bassist for Grand Serenade and Elise Davis) was hit by a drunk driver while riding his motorcycle. Ware suffered serious injuries and was in a coma for some time.

He's recovering, according to posts on his Facebook page, but it will be a long road and obviously a costly one as well. This is the second fundraiser White Water Tavern has hosted for Ware, and again, it will be an opportunity for friends and family and others to get together not only to help Ware, but also to enjoy some music, art and fellowship.

There's going to be an auction of artwork, apparel and more, including paintings from John Kushmaul and Katherine Rutter and T-shirts sporting one of Ware's drawings from Brooks Tipton's Electric Ghost Printing. The music lineup includes Andy Warr, Color Club, Isaac Alexander, Adam Faucett, Kyle Mays and others. The auction starts at 8 p.m. and the music later.

    For this year's Music Issue, I wrote a story about Pharoah Sanders and his relationship to Little Rock, a relationship that has sometimes been fraught. A number of people helped out who didn't appear in the piece, among them Sal Bonner, Thomas East, Alita Mantels and Sylvia "Sy" Smith. /more/

  • Live Review: James Taylor at Verizon Arena

    August 11, 2014
    Looking around Verizon Arena ten minutes before James Taylor took the stage on Friday night, this writer, 19 himself, noted fans young and old alike — white-haired women in flashing red glasses scooting past a gaggle of teenagers, a wide-eyed boy of about seven clutching his father’s hand in a stairwell, and senior lawyers and businessmen sipping beer in a booth. When asked Taylor’s age, my own 14-year-old sister answered correctly. He’s 66. /more/
  • Jimmy Doyle's Country Club Edition, with Hector $lash and Amyjo Savannah

    August 6, 2014
    This is something from the new Hector $lash tape, "Cocaine Demon," $lash being one of the guys in the Little Rock rap group Vile Pack. The beat (by Warren Gesu$) gives it kind of an early Mobb Deep vibe, which is generally a good thing and especially so here. /more/

  • Late Night Dispatches from Midtown, Electric Cowboy and Elevations

    For this week’s cover story, three of us from the Times took a post-2 a.m. tour of Midtown, Electric Cowboy and Elevations to get some pictures and shout questions at strangers over the music. Fortunately, it’s easier to cold-start a conversation with someone when they’ve had 3 or 4 (or 9 or 10) drinks inside them. Unfortunately, although the willingness-to-talk curve goes up relative to the amount of alcohol consumed, the coherence-of-conversation curve moves in the opposite direction. Here are a few outtakes from a mostly sober night of inviting drunks to rant about city politics.
