Thursday To-Do: Elise Davis

ELISE DAVIS
9 p.m., Juanita's. $6.

It's not 15-year-old Tanya Tucker singing “Would You Lay with Me (In a Field of Stone),” but when 19-year-old singer/songwriter Elise Davis sings, “I tried my whole life to be someone who you would love,” a blip of skepticism passes through. Really? Your whole life? But then again I've got Davis' bio. Judged only by her rich voice and breezy, open-road arrangements (courtesy of the fellas at Blue Chair Studios, who've put out a diverse handful of some of Arkansas's strongest releases in the last couple of years), Davis sounds mature well beyond her years. And judged even by her resume — two albums already under her belt and a third, “Another Lonesome Romance,” releasing on Thursday — she's farther down the road to Sheryl Crow-dom than virtually all her 19-year-old peers. Fittingly, the show is open to all ages.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
