ARGENTA STREET BEAT
6 p.m., Main Street, North Little Rock. Free.

Down-home rock 'n' roll will close Main Street in downtown North Little Rock for the first ever Argenta Street Beat on Friday. Sponsored by the downtown development project Main Street Argenta, the concert features Southern country-rock heroes the Kentucky Headhunters. Although they formed initially and briefly in the late '60s, the Headhunters didn't officially debut until the late '80s, when they put out “Pickin' on Nashville,” a country album, that, as its title suggests, didn't quite cotton to the strictures of Nashville. In debt more to Lynyrd Skynyrd than George Jones, the album featured the biggest hits of the band's career, “Dumas Walker” and “Oh, Lonesome Me.” Over the last two decades, through line-up changes and ebbing popularity, the Headhunters have continued to kick out a Southern hybrid of blues, rock and honky-tonk. Sonic (and actual) descendants of the Headhunters Black Stone Cherry also features on the bill. (Drummer John Fred Young is Headhunters drummer Young's son.) Firmly rooted in Southern rock, BSC leaves behind the country of its forbears in favor of hard-charging modern rock, with hints of '90s grunge acts like Alice in Chains and Soundgarden. Local rockers Monoxide Project open. The concert will close several downtown North Little Rock roads and alter trolley routes. See www.mainstreetargenta.org for more info.
