Saturday To-Do: Luke Hunsicker Benefit

Posted By on Mon, May 17, 2010 at 8:48 AM

9 p.m., Juanita's. $10.

On one hand, it sucks that these are happening; on the other, I wish they'd happen all the time. These shows bring out both the better angels of our nature and the better bands of Little Rock. It's the third in a series of fund-raisers for Luke Hunsicker, the American Princes bassist who's battling the whole nine yards of brain cancer, a pretty pricy endeavor by anyone's pocketbook. But not only is it a helluva time for a helluva nice guy, it also offers up a pupu platter of local bands. This time around, the benefit features honey-harmonied indie-pop with Whale Fire; the immediate college rockers Bear Colony; rural garage ne'er-do-wells Frown Pow'r; bullseye Americana from Adam Faucett & The Tall Grass; hands-down, this writer's favorite Arkansas band, Life Size Pizza and — you know them, love them — Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
