Friday To-Do: Col. Bruce Hampton and the Quark Alliance

Posted By on Fri, Jan 23, 2009 at 9:50 AM


9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $8 adv., $10 d.o.s.

Five years after I first saw Col. Bruce Hampton and the Aquarium Rescue Unit, my former band mate Sterno turned me on to Hampton Grease Band, which featured a wily and screaming side of Hampton. You may also have glimpsed him in “Slingblade” and “Outside Out,” or recall his musical tenure with the Fiji Mariners. Or the Codetalkers. Never one to stand idle, the veteran colonel returns for what's becoming at least a bi-annual Little Rock appearance with another of his tenured projects, the Quark Alliance. Expect heavy, yet intricate guitar work and stellar musicianship, as Hampton is known for recruiting and training heavyweights before turning them loose on the world. With books, additional movies and more CDs on the horizon, he's not putting on the brakes anytime soon either. There's no opening act, so expect a lengthy show, and one worth arriving early for.

AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
