Thursday: Cheer Brigade, Salty Dogs, Jonathan Wilkins, more

Posted By on Thu, Aug 6, 2009 at 1:19 PM


Cheer Brigade.

If you see a monkey walkin' down your street, don't walk on by: It's just Cheer Brigade, a 19-piece brass ensemble fond of monkey masks and from Providence, R.I., who'll assemble outside of the Station at 6 p.m. before parading throughout Hillcrest (maybe to the House), before heading to Capital View for a block party (I'm being purposefully vague. House shows don't need me meddling in their word of mouth.)

UPDATE: Now, I hear the crew is starting at the House at 5 p.m. and then proceeding eastward in Hillcrest.

At White Water, Little Rock honky-tonk heroes the Salty Dogs play music to two-step to, 9 p.m., $5.

Local aggro-folk singer/songwriter Jonathan Wilkins offers a free acoustic set early evening at the House, 7 p.m.

Later, prolific local singer/songwriter Adam Faucett serves up his own free acoustic set at Satellite, 9 p.m.

For the Afterthought's regular Thursday jazz series, local duo Bill Thurman and Bill Nesbitt do a mix of hot club and gypsy jazz, 8 p.m., $5.

North Little Rock rockers Third Degree headline at 9 p.m., $5.

In Spa City, Brian Martin plays folk ditties made for dancing at Maxine's, 9 p.m., free.

AND (How could I forget?): Little Rock's favorite grown-up-pop collective, the Boondogs, return to the stage for first time since May on Thursday at Sticky Fingerz. Expect the band to be armed as usual with low-watt anthems of love and loss. If we're lucky, we'll hear new material. Lead 'dogs Jason Weinheimer and Indy Grotto have spent the last several months writing for their follow-up to last year's "Take Shelter," which they plan to record in November. It'll feature new Boondog, organist Al Gamble, who also plays in Memphis bands the Gamble Brothers and John Paul Keith and the One Four Fives. Sadly, he couldn't make this gig. But opener Bill Mallonee certainly adds to the appeal. The long time front man of Athens' rockers Vigilantes of Love comes to town behind his Americana-heavy solo work, with his wife, keyboardist and vocalist Muriah Rose, in tow, 9:30 p.m., $6.
