In Brief, Aug. 13 

THURSDAY 8/13

 

“1964 the Tribute” returns to Robinson Center Music Hall, as it seems to do every year, with black suits, skinny ties, mop-tops and a batch of early-era Beatles tunes, 7:30 p.m., $27-$47. Former Getty Matt Joyce offers a variety show at West End that's bound to include a bit of his acclaimed Elvis impersonation, 9 p.m., $5. The House hosts cigar-box guitar whiz Bluesboy Jag, 7 p.m., free. It's a night of jazz with the Ed Smith Quartet at the Afterthought, 8 p.m., $5.

 

FRIDAY 8/14

Two of Little Rock's finest local acts, Magic Hassle and the See, share a bill at White Water, 10 p.m., $5. Nashville's Music Row magazine named Jonathan Singleton its Breakout Songwriter of last year. So far, the country singer, who comes to Sticky Fingerz with his backing band the Groove, has penned number one songs for Gary Allan and Billy Currington, 9 p.m., $6. Throwback pop-punks Armed Forces share a bill at Vino's with the shoegaze-y American Gods, 9 p.m. The final concert in the Promenade at Chenal's summer series features local R&B duo Brenda and Ellis, 6 p.m., free. At Cornerstone, Conway's Natural State play a pysch-tinged brand of alt-rock, 9 p.m., $5. El Son del Mundo is a new, world music focused duo composed of longtime local musicians Judd Martindale and Nick Devlin; they're at Capi's, 9 p.m., free. At the Afterthought, Tonya Leeks sings when she's not playing the flute or saxophone, 9 p.m., $7. Late night, Whale Fire offers infectious pop-rock at Midtown, 12:30 a.m., $5.

 

SATURDAY 8/15

Fans of Southern Gothic-style genre mash and shirtless antics, head to Spa City! Th' Legendary Shack*Shakers, legendary for good reason, headline a bill at Maxine's that also features deranged one-man band Scott H. Biram and Andrew Anderson, 9 p.m., $8 adv., $10 d.o.s. Arkansas's favorite sons the American Princes share a bill with Stella Fancy at Revolution, 9:30 p.m. Frown Pow'r can't catch a break. For the second time, what it had billed as a CD release show will be CD-less; the band's garage-folk won't be any less fun, though, at White Water, 10 p.m., $5. It's a rare pleasure when Meshugga Klezmer Band plays its Jewish folk music at the Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7. At Discovery, DJ Lydia Prim handles the disco, while g-force mans the lobby, midnight, $10.

  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.
