Friday To-Do: 'Shoog Radio Lives!'

'SHOOG RADIO LIVES!'
8 p.m., Maxine's, Hot Springs. $6 adv., $8 d.o.s.

Let it be known that we're pretty sweet on Shoog. Every Monday afternoon from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., local lady on the scene Cheyenne Matthews takes to the KABF 88.3 airwaves to host an infectiously ramshackle block of local music. If the tunes aren't dialed up from her iPod encyclopedia, they're performed, live on the air, from the rotating cast of locals who pack, elbows to butts, in the tiny Main Street studio. It's one of the many small charms that Little Rock has to offer. And we want to see it keep keepin' on. This weekend, the show is raising money for new equipment for the radio station by heading down the road to Hot Springs alongside a crew of Shoog regulars.

The night's lined up to offer sets from Adam Faucett, the inimitable local; Ace Spade & the Whores of Babylon, those long-tenured psychobilly prowlers; Bryan Frazier, who recently released a career-spanning anthology; Sweet Eagle, the testosterone-jacked crew of local Detroit rockers; and The Walking Lawsuits, a Hot Springs trio with one foot in the '50s and an amp in the early-'90s.
