Weekend: Chris Denny, Big Buck Classic, Izzy Cox

Posted By on Fri, Jan 21, 2011 at 4:41 AM

FRIDAY 1/21

Hunters can stop X'ing the days off of their calendar: the Big Buck Classic returns to the Arkansas State Fairgrounds for another weekend of everything deer hunting; doors open at 1 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, $10 adults.

It's been a while since his last gig, but lauded local singer/songwriter Chris Denny is set to bring his unique take on Southern sounds to Town Pump, 10 p.m., $5.

Cool Shoes returns to Downtown Music Hall with their dugout of DJs waiting to spin electro, dubstep and hip-hop, 10 p.m., $5 early admission.

Always a local favorite, Memphis' John Paul Keith and the One Four Fives brings a slick take on early rock 'n' roll to White Water Tavern, 10 p.m.

And at the Faulkner County Library, the UALR Guitar Ensemble puts the spin on Joe Pass, The Beatles and more, 7 p.m., free.


SATURDAY 1/22

Juanita's goes dark (and heavy) with two Russellville bands in hard rockers Afternoon Delight, nu-metalists Dark From Day One and Hot Springs industrial act The Vail, 9 p.m.

Swinging, self-described "voodoobilly" femme fatale Izzy Cox (left) and Hot Springs country and western wunderkind Andrew Anderson pick and howl for the crowd at Maxine's Pub, 9 p.m., $5.

Future poet laureate of Pulaski County (if a certain Facebook group gets its way) Kevin Kerby brings his solo set to White Water Tavern alongside Chris Michaels (of Chris Michaels and the Cranks) and Denton, Texas, songwriter Isaac Hoskins, 10 p.m.

Revolution invites fresh-faced upstarts to its stage during the "New Music Test"; this weekend features soulful rock from Haven Hill, driving Southern metal from Iron-E, metalcore from Veridium and alternative freshmen Iron Glass, 9 p.m., $5-$10.

Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase semi-finalist The Smittle Band lands in The Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7.
