Thursday To-Do: Benjamin Del Shreve

BENJAMIN DEL SHREVE
8 p.m., the Village.

In the early part of the decade, Hatfield native Benjamin Del Shreve crisscrossed the country as the lead singer in GS Megaphone, a hugely popular Christian hard rock act. Frustrated by what he has characterized as the greed in the Christian music industry, the band dissolved, and shortly thereafter, Del Shreve started writing music in transit — in far-flung spots like Key West, a hippie commune in Northern California, New York City, France. Last year, he lived in a cabin and worked as migrant labor in Maine, where he wrote the lyrics for “Brilliant and Charming,” an album he'll release in Little Rock on Thursday night. Now settled in Fayetteville, with a sharp, tuneful four-piece backing band, Del Shreve has become one of Northwest Arkansas's biggest draws. Featuring a self-described songwriting style that is “a constant wrestling match between the lover and the poet and the asskicker,” Del Shreve and his band play punchy rock ‘n' roll that owes a debt to Led Zeppelin and Pete Yorn. They'll be joined by Kingsdown, a local modern rock quintet that recalls early ‘90s alt-rock; rising local pop-rockers Cities and Thrones, and singer/songwriter Adam Hambrick. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation. LM.
