Gettin' Out: Wednesday

Posted on Wed, May 24, 2006 at 11:42 AM

It's AmyB, checking in to give you all the wherewithal for hump day, with Riverfest looming around the corner:

The Old Haunts are straight outtta Olympia, Wash.: the place of Nirvana, where the Gossip found a creative vibe, you know, that place. They’ll be at Downtown Music tonight. Simply put: they are a surf-punk garage band that utilizes minor chords and the fuzziness factor up to 11. Check out www.myspace.com/oldhaunts.
Local rock rascals Real Fighting will open at 10 p.m. $5. I still want them to do a cover of Wesley Willis' "Cut the Mullet"; I think that would be superb.

All-ages week continues at Juanita’s. Bands to see tonight: June, This Day and Age, This Providence, the Forecast. Starts at 7:30 p.m. $8.

Sticky Fingerz brings in Satisfaction for Rolling Stones fans. It’s a tribute band … Whether the resemblance is “uncanny” or not, sounds kind of keen to check out…9 p.m. $5.

He’s been around forever it seems, just a man and his guitar and his cover songs. Bob Hayes is a favorite among the Cajun’s Wharf crowd. Get on out there 8 p.m., $5.

Karaoke round up tonight. Rudy’s Oyster Bar, Parrot Beach Café, On the Rocks, Gusano’s.

I haven’t been to a karaoke night in a while. It takes a lot to get me to go. Last time I went only because my best friend promised to do Weird Al Yankovic songs. And she did. Not to dog the folks that really get into it at all but , "Like a Surgeon," "Eat It" and 'I Love Rocky Road" all in one night?..now that’s what I call KARAOKE.

Big weekend ahead. Kool and the Gang, Del, Dwight, Aaron. I am getting a major hankering for a corn dog, the kind of which you can only find at a fair or festival …

  • Industrial hemp pilot program coming soon to Arkansas

    One of the booths at this week's Ark-La-Tex Medical Cannabis Expo was hosted by the Arkansas Hemp Association, a trade group founded to promote and expand non-intoxicating industrial hemp as an agricultural crop in the state. AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
