'TWO GRASS': Eddie and Martha Adcock at Acoustic Sounds.
  • 'TWO GRASS': Eddie and Martha Adcock at Acoustic Sounds.
Bluegrass and country husband-and-wife team Eddie and Martha Adcock will appear at Acoustic Sounds Cafe, 600 Pleasant Valley Drive, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, July 22. The three-time Grammy nominees deliver a sound that they have named “TwoGrass” — a mixture of gospel, folk, blues, jazz, rock and rockabilly — and add warm stage banter and family-style humor. The Adcocks, married since 1976, started off in the latter part of that decade in a band called Second Generation. Before that, Eddie Adcock was in the groundbreaking, influential bluegrass duo the Country Gentlemen. Their discography, both individually and combined, is quite extensive, and the two have appeared on “Austin City Limits” and TNN’s “Nashville Limits,” among other shows. Emily Higgins, a singer/songwriter/guitarist from Missouri and sister of John Higgins of the Flying Mules, will open at 7:30 p.m. Higgins’ CDs include “The House at the End of the Road” and “Singing River.” Admission is $8, $7 for students. The Dallas-based band now known as the Deathray Davies, playing Thursday, July 21, at Sticky Fingerz, has evolved through many incarnations since its formation by John Dufilho in the late ’90s. Its latest manifestation is a five-man band that pays a sort of homage to retro garage pop groups like the Kinks and the Seeds. Their latest album, “The Kick and the Snare,” has been reaping critical praise. That album was a follow-up to last year’s “Midnight at the Black Nail Polish Factory.” Grand Serenade, Heber Springs natives and undeniably one of this year’s favorite local acts, and the Hundred Inevitables will open at 9 p.m. Cover is $5. Sticky Fingerz has no doubt booked the most tribute bands this year. Paradise City, a Guns N’ Roses tribute band from Kentucky (opening at Electric Dolls), will appear on Friday, July 22. Queen for A Day, a Queen tribute band from New Orleans, is scheduled for Saturday, July 23. Admission to each show is $7. Hot Apple Pie, formed by former Little Texas member Brady Seals, will appear at the Electric Cowboy on Thursday, July 21. Country music fans recognize the band’s single, “Hillbillies,” which hit big on the Billboard charts. Finishing out Hot Apple Pie’s lineup are Sparky Matejka, Trey Landry and Keith Horne. Their self-titled CD was produced by Richard Landis, who has worked with artists like Lorrie Morgan and Juice Newton. The show starts at 7 p.m. Admission is $8 at the door, $6 in advance. For more information, call 562-6000. On Thursday, July 21, the Green Party of Central Arkansas will have a fund-raiser at Vino’s, featuring local bands Blind Boy White and the Chicklettes, starting at 8:30 p.m. Jim Lendall, the Green Party’s candidate for governor, will speak (very briefly) and meet supporters. Eighteen Visions, a metalcore band from Orange County, Calif., will headline a show on Friday, July 22, at Vino’s. Their latest album is “Obsession,” which includes the single “I Let Go.” Openers He Is Legend, Black Maria and Love Hate Hero will start things off at 8:30 p.m. Admission is $12. Vino’s is also hosting a show to benefit Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley and Jason Baldwin — better known as the West Memphis Three — on Saturday, July 23, with music from Strange As Fiction, You Before Me and Burnt Offering. A $5 donation is requested for the all-ages event. Funky Java, the coffee shop and live music venue in North Little Rock, has closed as of July 16th.
