9 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.

It's hard to believe it's been nearly two years since Luke Hunsicker passed away. By every account, Luke was truly one of the most beloved Little Rock artists ever, a guy who was an enormously talented musician and visual artist, who had an easy way about him, who gave great haircuts, who played in a zillion bands, who touched the lives of an incredibly diverse array of people, who inspired others to pursue what they loved.

Particularly with regard to that last part, Luke's family and friends have set up the Lucas Clayton Hunsicker Scholarship Fund, which "is awarded to an aspiring Parkview High School artist or musician in order to forward their educational goals," according to a recent press release. This show is a fundraiser for the scholarship, but it's also a chance for Luke's many friends and family members to get together and celebrate his life and share memories and music.

It would be a good idea to get to the show early and maybe dress it up a bit more than usual. Several local artists will be selling their work, including screen prints of the show poster by Phillip Huddleston and Brittany Hallmark. And a big group of familiar local musicians will provide the soundtrack with a night of covers.

If you can't make it to the show, you can donate online to the Lucas Clayton Hunsicker Scholarship Fund.

    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.
