PUNKINHEAD / THE SCREAMING MIMES
9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

It's a dream come true for fans of mid-to-late-'90s local funk. In what's emerging as an annual tradition, Fayetteville's Punkinhead reunites for a pair of Halloween shows in Fayetteville and Little Rock, two cities in which the band reigned supreme back in the day. Expect a heavy dose of wah-wah pedal, hollered harmonies and funky drumming. Ditto for the Screaming Mimes, who, on their way to becoming perhaps the most beloved high school band in the history of White County, worshiped at the altar of Punkinhead. (With Gossip at Vino's, Friday night is all about Searcy High School reunions; see below for more nostalgia). If you've long wondered what the Easys or Big Silver would sound like with a touch of funk, here's your opportunity, courtesy of Isaac Alexander, Rob Bell and co.

Behold, the enduring power of the Screaming Mimes' "Chili Dogg" (courtesy of long time fan Ben Jones.)
