A CELEBRATION FOR MASON MAULDIN'
7 p.m. Revolution. Donations.

With the passing of Mason Mauldin, Little Rock lost a sharp and funny friend, a thoughtful and serious (without taking himself too seriously) musician, a skilled and enthusiastic pilot and so much more.

Those who knew him will always have their memories, and everyone will have his music. His friends created a website as a growing repository for the music he created and collaborated on. I just listened to an EP of his called "Middle Ground."

In just three songs, it shows off Mauldin's sophisticated grasp of pop music, his understanding of atmospherics and the breadth of his songwriting abilities. It's clear how deeply Mauldin loved music. So after Saturday's beautiful memorial service, what better way to remember him and celebrate his life than with a big, raucous all-ages rock show?

His friends in The See, Mad Nomad, Whale Fire and Amasa Hines will be performing. Donations will be taken at the door, and all proceeds will go towards the Mason Mauldin Aviation Scholarship Fund at Pulaski Technical College.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.

  • Live Review: Fleetwood Mac returns to Verizon with classic lineup reunited

    Fleetwood Mac is a band that embodies change and transformation. After a slew of different lineups, they hit their stride in the mid-‘70s, around the time that many of their fellow Boomers were settling down and starting families. Maybe that’s why their most beloved songs contrast a sort of jaded wisdom with hopeful confidence – the perfect soundtrack for growing up while still feeling young and looking forward to the future.
