Mulehead’s final shows coming this month 

Revered local rock-alt-country outfit Mulehead is releasing a CD and disbanding this month all at the same time (see "Arkansasongs," page ????). A couple of CD release parties are scheduled: at Juanita's Cantina Ballroom on Friday, Sept. 17, $10 admission (includes CD); and at Sticky Fingerz Friday, Sept. 24, beginning at 10 p.m., with a $6 cover. The latter marks the band's farewell show. We'll see if they can stay away from each other for that long. The way things work in the Little Rock music scene, this is probably not the last we'll see of the rocking alt-country guys. If you want to party and sing and dance along to your favorite retro-tunes, Sticky Fingerz has you "covered" both weekend nights, Sept. 17-18. Sellout, a costumed clan composed of guitar, bass, drums, horns and keyboards playing everything from the Village People to Eminem, will appear at 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 10. Admission is $7. And if you haven't had enough from yesteryear by that point, '80s-style septet Venus Mission blasts from the past at 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 18, with a repertoire that includes all the tunes you love to hate by such artists as Cyndi Lauper, Madonna, Tommy Tutone, Culture Club (you can probably guess the rest). Venus Mission completes the effect in full '80s garb, crimped hair, lace capri pants, and so forth. The cover is $7. Street-corner troubadour Carlos Guitarlos will be at Sticky Fingerz on Tuesday, Sept. 21, on his way to the Nashville Americana Music Conference. Although the term "street cred" tends to be overused, Guitarlos has it - doing the proverbial "singing for his supper" for the past decade or more in San Francisco's Mission District, after his previous career working with such acts as Tom Waits and the Breeders. With 2003's "Straight from the Heart," an album named for his hard-living, life-threatening heart problems and subsequent recovery, Guitarlos re-emerged from the streets, earning accolades from critics all over. After recording the album, Guitarlos found that his name had spread overseas and that he had becoming popular and sought out in the UK. He has also performed on NPR shows. Admission is free to the 9:30 p.m. show. (As a side note, local gospel-country-rocker Greg Spradlin was named an alternative performer at the Nashville conference.) On Sept. 22, Sticky Fingerz brings in yet another highly acclaimed act: Pete Anderson, longtime guitarist and creative partner of Dwight Yoakam (and noted record producer). He appears with Moot Davis starting at 9 p.m. ($8 cover). Opening is Texan Adam Hood, making his third appearance in Little Rock this month. Skye Moore, cleft-chinned pop rocker, is the headline act at Juanita's on Thursday, Sept 16. Moore is the great nephew of George Jones (who actually started out as a rockabilly artists). Moore's CD, "I'm Flyin'," a work 16 years in the making, includes the single "What's Up With That?," which has a video running on VH1 and MTV directed by Billy Bob Thornton. Guitar-heavy mod rock band Reverend Appleby from Jacksonville opens the 9 p.m. show. The pious bunch tells us a new CD is in the works.
