The North Mississippi Allstars play “Hear the Hills,” then bust into a tasty instrumental jam. They’ll repeat that process this weekend in Fayetteville.
So, blah blah blah basketball coach, blah blah sports blah blah blah Anderson yadda yadda yadda…
How about some music?
Good news! There is plenty going on in Northwest Arkansas this weekend. If you like boogie blues, the North Mississippi Allstars should be right up your alley. The group from Mississippi recently released the album “Keys to the Kingdom,” a rather stark look at life and death. The recording follows the death of the band member Cody and Luther Dickinson’s father and the birth of Luther Dickinson’s first child. It’s good stuff, as usual, and you can hear a track above. The Allstars will be at George’s Majestic Lounge on Saturday (March 26) night. The show should start sometime after 9 p.m.; tickets are $17 and available through the venue’s ticketing site.
You can also check out jazz guitarist Julian Lage tonight at the Walton Arts Center. He and his band is playing at 8 and 10 p.m. Tickets are $16-$30 through the venue’s website. Check the blog later for a little more info on Lage.
If you’re looking for something to do tonight (March 25), you might try JP and the Gilberts, who are at Smoke & Barrel Tavern in Fayetteville. This quintet is visiting from Brooklyn, N.Y. That show starts at 9 p.m., but according to their website, they’ll also have an brief in-store preview at Sound Warehouse at 8 p.m.
See you out and about.
