Thursday To-Do: Thick Syrup Anniversary shows

  • Thick Syrup Records celebrates its sixth year with three anniversary shows, starting Thursday.

8 p.m. Maxine's and White Water Tavern.

It's the sixth anniversary of Little Rock label Thick Syrup Records, the purveyors of many flavors of rock 'n' roll both local and national (and even international, what with an album from Dutch custom-guitar wizard Yuri Landman).

Since 2006, Travis McElroy's imprint has released recordings by many of Little Rock's most notable (and notorious) bands, including Smoke Up Johnny, Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth, The Reparations, Frown Pow'r, San Antokyo and many more, as well as albums from such left-field luminaries as Jad and David Fair of Half-Japanese fame, Don Fleming, Bob Bert and The Chrome Cranks, among others.

These anniversary shows will be filmed for an upcoming documentary, according to the label's website. It all kicks off Thursday at Maxine's, with The Many Persian Z's, Androids of Ex-Lovers, Browningham, Michael Inscoe and Brother Andy. That's followed by a two-day blowout at White Water Tavern, starting 9 p.m. Friday with The See, The Bloodless Cooties, The Alpha Ray and Inscoe. It wraps up Saturday night starting at 9 p.m., with Browningham, Inscoe, Androids and Ezra Lbs.

Note: I think there were some lineup changes after the Times went to press, so I updated this.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
