Friday To-Do: Lucky 777 Inch Vinyl Release Cruise

Theres a cruise on the Arkansas Queen Friday for the release of the Iron Tongue/Dirty Streets split 7.
  • There's a cruise on the Arkansas Queen Friday for the release of the Iron Tongue/Dirty Streets split 7".

LUCKY 777 INCH VINYL RELEASE CRUISE
10 p.m. Arkansas Queen. $15.

Ah, the 7" split single, the historically punk- and hardcore-oriented format that gave us classic unions like Melvins/Nirvana, Destroy/Disrupt, Rorschach/Neanderthal, Crossed Out/Man is the Bastard and so many more.

Add to the list Iron Tongue/The Dirty Streets. The two bands are chums and did a tour together in 2010. Now, they're joining forces for a split vinyl slab of bluesy heaviosity. Iron Tongue you probably know as the local supergroup whose steel-forged songs of pain pick up your head and slam it gently into the sidewalk — metaphorically speaking, mostly. The Dirty Streets is a power trio out of Memphis that boogies down the same overdriven, fuzzed-out highway as yesteryear greats like Blue Cheer or The Groundhogs or more contemporary cosmonauts such as Comets on Fire.

The Dirty Streets are out on the dusty road right now, but you can catch Iron Tongue aboard the Arkansas Queen, with Hot Springs' finest purveyors of nasty punk 'n' roll The Holy Shakes and Little Rock's The Nigh Ends, which has personnel from some of the city's best rock bands of the last decade-plus.
