Thursday To-Do: Man Man

Posted By on Thu, Apr 23, 2009 at 10:25 AM


9 p.m., Revolution. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

Man Man has played Little Rock enough over the years that a lot of folks know the score. The five-piece, whose members go by names like Pow Pow and Chang Wang, usually sports Wimbledon whites, handlebar mustaches and face paint. Their music sounds like a carnival as imagined by Tom Waits. Front man Honus Honus' barks and pounding organ steer the way through antic, campfire-style harmonies and an instrumental mishmash of out-of-tune horns fighting for space with clavinets, euphoniums and melodica. Lately, Honus Honus has been lovesick in his lyrics. Expect a pile of young folk to be dancing to lines like, “People claim I'm possessed by the devil/But Mama, I know I'm possessed by your daughter!” Comedian Andrew Wright and local post-punk heroes the Moving Front open.

  • Janet Jackson at Verizon Arena: A Review

    Her dance abilities had clearly diminished, as they naturally would over two decades. I mean, she's 50. And has a newborn. I get it, but it's like they're grasping at recreating 20 year-old Janet instead of focusing on what makes 50 year-old Janet amazing, and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t terribly disappointed.
