Slobberbone! 

SLOBBERBONE

9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $12.

 

It's a rare treat for alt-country fans. Slobberbone, the best terribly named band Texas ever birthed, has reunited for a seven-date mini-reunion tour, and, thanks to the tireless efforts of Last Chance Records' Travis Hill and the fact that Kevin Kerby makes Little Rock his home, White Water rates a stop-over. Led by Brent Best (who grew up playing music with Kerby in Texas) and named for a dog's chew toy, Slobberbone entered the scene in 1992 with a sound Best has always maintained is “rock, pure and simple.” Some might disagree. In the decade before it splintered apart, the band released four albums that trade on heartbreak, hangovers and stylistic variety. An acoustic ballad, ornamented with fiddle and mandolin, here; a full-throated cowpunk'd rallying cry there. Expect the crowd to know the words to those and everything in between. Tickets were still available at press time via the tavern and lastchancemusic.com, but White Water will declare a sell-out once it sells 150. Best act fast. Appropriately, Kevin Kerby and Battery open. Look out for trash talking.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
