Anticipating: The Good Fear, J. Roddy Walston and the Business and the American Princes

Posted By on Wed, Sep 26, 2007 at 2:53 PM


1. The American Princes haven't played here in 4 months.
2. That's the longest time the band's ever gone between Little Rock shows.
3. The hiatus is mostly because they were making a new album.
4. Chuck Brody, who's worked with the Beastie Boys, Wu-Tang Clan and Peter Bjorn and John produced.
5. We're hearing good things.
6. Because 5/6 of the Good Fear live in Fayetteville, they rarely play here.
7. The band features current and former members of White Whale, Lucero, the New Amsterdams, Thee Higher Burning Fire and Woods Afire.
8. When they're on, the Good Fear are better than all those bands.
9. They've been in the studio for what seems like decades working on their sophomore album.
10. We're hearing good things.
11. Included in the cover (for at least early comers), a CD with a single, "Tools of Trade," and video track, to be played on computer, of the band's new music video for the song (shot by the Deluxe36 dudes who did the Moving Front's "Zombies")
11. J. Roddy Walston and the Business, despite their cumbersome name, are supposedly really good live.
12. They come endorsed by the Princes, Good Fear and the dozens who saw them at Pizza D on the 4th of July.
