News from abroad: Fayetteville

Posted By on Thu, Mar 4, 2010 at 4:17 PM


A damn fine town.

After the closing of Opal Fly's Feel Good Lounge, the Fayetteville Flyer reports that a new club is soon to open. A jazz club, The Nines will feature live music in a "1940s style atmosphere."

U of A radio station KXUA and Fayetteville art collective Art Amiss co-curated a compilation of Arkansas punk music from 1980-today called, simply, "Arkansas Punk."  It features everyone from late 70s/early 80s local legends The Malls to current day Fayetteville math spazzes Perpetual Werewolf. Download it here.

Judah Friedlander, comedian and writer for TGS with Tracy Jordan cast member of 30 Rock takes a break from making sun tea updating his awesome Twitter to visit U of A on April 6.

Also, Smoke and Barrel was kindly enough to host a three night stand of Little Rock music last week called "They Came From Little Rock!" with Chris Denny, Jonathan Wilkins & the Reparations, Life Size Pizza, Brother Andy, Frown Pow'r (full disclosure: I'm 1/5 of this band) and The See. Everyone here had a blast and really appreciated everyone's hospitality. Also, we loved showing Fayetteville how to drink.
