Glam metal Downtown 

Jed Clampit, too.

VIVA LAST VEGAS: At Downtown Music.
  • VIVA LAST VEGAS: At Downtown Music.

From Chi-town, Downtown Music hosts the Last Vegas, an all-out rock group that plays kick-ass fuzzy guitar rock of the late ’70s and early ’80s, on Saturday, Nov. 19. Like early Guns N’ Roses or Motley Crue, with some Jane’s Addiction and Stooges thrown in the mix, Last Vegas plays a healthy mix of metal, glam, and hard rock.

“Lick ’Em or Leave ’Em” was their debut album. “Get Hip” is scheduled for release in February 2006. They’ve toured with Urge Overkill, the Cynics and Nashville Pussy, and have songs in regular rotation on the MTV show “Pimp My Ride.”

Opening at 8 p.m. will be More Fire and Scrimm. Admission for all ages is $5.


For more than 40 years, Fayetteville artist Jed Clampit has made accessible, soulful country-tinged storytelling music that he calls “Front Porch Contemporary.”

So it’s a welcome surprise that in his latest album, “Christmas Songs,” he and brother Bill break new ground, doing a 1950s big-band-era take on traditional Christmas songs. He’ll sing some of those songs and others at 2nd Place Cafe on Friday, Nov. 18, at a free 7:30 p.m. show. Doors open at 7 p.m. The venue is non-smoking and alcohol-free. For more information, call 374-9284.



The night before the Arkansas v. Mississippi State game, get in the UA spirit with Fayetteville-based B-Side’s grade A funk and groove-based original rock at Sticky Fingerz. The band will appear at 9:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18, before jazz-infused rockers 56 hope road take the stage. Admission is $7.



For the blue-suede-shoes and retro-rockabilly set, the Dempseys from Memphis will rock around the clock at Sticky Fingerz on Saturday, Nov. 19. The group, which is the house band at Elvis Presley’s on Beale Street, appears as the King’s back-up band in the upcoming movie, “I Walk the Line.” They start, with no opening act, at 9 p.m. Admission is $7.
