Tongues wag over the Gossip 

Also, Mama’s Cookin’ serves up all-you-can-handle improv blues.

HAVE YOU HEARD? The Gossip is coming.
  • HAVE YOU HEARD? The Gossip is coming.
It’s well known around the Arkansas music scene that two members of the Portland, Ore.-based garage-punk and soul trio the Gossip are from Searcy: Beth Ditto, a soulful Yoko Ono- or Koko Taylor-inspired vocalist, and Brace Paine, a guitarist. The Gossip, which has built a national fan base with its noisy rock and soul, will play at Vino’s Brewpub on Monday, Oct. 10. News since the band’s last visit here: Hannah Blilie has replaced Kathy Mendonca on drums. It also has a new album, “Standing in the Way of Control,” coming out early in 2006. A preview 12-inch LP dance remix of the title cut will be out next week on the band’s Kill Rock Stars label. Richmond Bread Riot opens Monday’s show at 8 p.m. Admission is $8. Mama’s Cookin’ is ready to get out of the kitchen and rattle some pots and pans at Sticky Fingerz at 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 6. The Gunnison, Colo., band consists of Zeb Early on guitar, harp and vocals; Todd Holway on keys; Steven LaBella on bass, and Mike Adamo on drums. Mama’s Cookin’ dishes out satisfying, danceable jazz-inspired improv rock and funk, some gritty Delta blues, with sides of hip-hop and a little disco. Cover is $5. B-Side from Fayetteville will jam out on Friday, Oct. 7, at Sticky Fingerz. A favorite in Northwest Arkansas, B-Side won the Best Jam/Groove band and Album of the Year at the Northwest Music Awards in 2002. Starting that show at 9:30 p.m. will be the Benjy Davis Project from Baton Rouge, La. Fueled by the strong modern rock songwriting of vocalist/guitarist Davis, the group’s style is heartfelt. The Project celebrates its Southern heritage with songs about its geographical neck of the woods: “Louisiana Saturday Night,” “Cajun Crawfish Boil” and “New Orleans.” Admission is $7. The Benjy Davis Project also will also headline at George’s Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville on Saturday, Oct. 8. Admission to the 10 p.m. show is $6. And the familiar faces of Dash Rip Rock, the New Orleans-based trio, will be playing at Sticky Fingerz on Saturday, Oct. 8. Audience participation is a big part of a show that’s on the slightly depraved and raucous side of rock, punk and country. Admission to the 9 p.m. show is $7. Metal mouths From Autumn to Ashes plays Vino’s Brewpub Thursday, Oct. 6. Tickets are $12 in advance or $14 the day of show. The Chicklettes and Free Blondes (a hybrid of FreeVerse and Weakness for Blondes) will perform for a Planned Parenthood benefit at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, at Vino’s. Members of the Red Octopus Theater troupe will give condom demonstrations. Admission is $10.

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
