Mike Poe gets new gig at Revolution 

On Saturday, Travis “Tre’ Day” Rowan will host his 4th annual Treday.com Celebrity Birthday Bowling Bash. Minnijean Brown Trickey, Jermain Taylor, Joe Johnson and Corliss Williamson will be on hand to raise money for the Treday.com Scholarship Project, which benefits students in UALR’s mass communications program. A silent auction, which will include a bowling pin signed by Bill Clinton, will accompany the event, scheduled for 3 p.m. Saturday at Millennium Bowl in Maumelle.

Looking ahead: The Memphis-based band Lucero will host its first ever family picnic on Saturday, Sept. 1 (Labor Day weekend), at Riverside Park in Batesville. Fronted by Little Rock native Ben Nichols, the band will be joined by friends Southern Bitch, Cory Branan, William Elliott Whitmore, Glossary, Two Cow Garage and Wooden Stares for the early evening show. Gates open at 5 p.m. There’ll be an 18-and-up after-party later at Josie’s, where the bands will play a few more songs. For advance tickets and ticket packages, go to www.luceromusic.com or www.batesvillepromotions.com.

Mike Poe, longtime bartender at Pizza D’Action and hip-hop documentarian, has taken an assistant’s position with Chris King and Suzon Awbrey, co-owners of Sticky Fingerz and Rumba-Revolution. Poe will be learning the ropes of all avenues music-related. The idea, Poe says, is that he’ll eventually contribute to booking, marketing and searching for new bands to play the venues. You can still find him behind the bar on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons at Pizza D.

Speaking of Chris King, he reported that the sound tech who worked the noise-plagued Lez Zeppelin show at Revolution two weeks ago, which we reviewed last week, was fired the morning after the show.
