Five LR shows to clear your calendar for

Posted By on Fri, Jan 23, 2009 at 5:10 PM


It's staying light longer! We're having occasionally nice weather! Everyone's slowly emerging from the clutches of seasonal affective disorders! Time to start thinking about four roll-up-your-sleeves-and-get-down shows coming our way in the near future.

1. Jack Oblivian and the Tearjerkers, Harlan T. Bobo and King Louis and His Loose Diamonds. White Water, Wed., Feb. 4, $6. It's a Goner showcase. The kick-ass Memphis label that spawned Jay Reatard sends three of its finest (most of whom will also appear in "$5 Cover"). Tavern favorite John Paul Keith plays in the Tearjerkers.

2. Girl Talk. Revolution, Thurs., Feb. 12, $15. Online tickets are sold out to see the pop collagist mix Ace of Base with Lil Scrappy with Temple of the Dog with Wu-Tang with something else that doesn't go together, but so does. So go down to the Rev Room and get your ticket in person. This is definitely selling out.

3. Eagles of Death Metal. Juanita's. Fri., Feb. 13, $18 adv., $20 d.o.s. It's Josh Homme's (Queens of the Stone Age) other, less popular, but equally awesome swaggering rock band. Smoke Up Johnny opens.

4. Cedric Burnside and Malcolm Lightnin'. White Water Tavern. Fri., Feb. 20, $5-ish. The 20 or so of us who saw this North Mississippi blues duo play a few months back have been evangelizing like crazy ever since. Absolutely essential. Earlier: My rhapsodic account of the show.

5. T-Model Ford. White Water Tavern. Fri., March 13. $5-ish. Speaking of the blues. He's one of Fat Possum's last blues men. He's damn near 80-year-old, but still kicking out hill country blues to stomp to. With drummer Spam. Download "Cut You Loose."

  • Come with the Arkansas Times to the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival

    After several years of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro hosting benefit concerts to raise money for the restoration of Johnny Cash's boyhood home, this year the Johnny Cash Heritage Festival debuts in Dyess just outside the Cash homeplace. And of course the Arkansas Times is chartering a bus to be there. The lineup is spectacular: Kris Kristofferson (one of the greatest songwriters of all-time easily), Rosanne Cash, Joanne Cash and Tommy Cash and Buddy Jewel.
