The weekend in music, with Daymoths and more

January 20th, 2012 at 9:21 am


Ah, yes, the weekend. I can think of about 30 ways to celebrate. I don’t have time to get into all of the ways here, but just know you should enjoy yourself if you aren’t working. It’s unseasonably warm, the Razorbacks play a ranked basketball team at home and there are plenty of concerts to see.

Let’s get to the latter, shall we?

Indie rockers Daymoths is the husband and wife pair of Emily Dantuma and Ollie Dodge. They first started performing together in the band Vox Vermillion, then forged ahead as a duo. Daymoths recently released the album “Back in Time.” The group performs Saturday (Jan. 21) at Paradygm Shyft in Fort Smith. The 18-and-up show begins at 8 p.m. The cover charge is $5.

The same evening in Fayetteville, Stoney LaRue returns to a town he’s performed at many times.

The Red Dirt country musician has placed his emphasis on the road, playing about 200 live dates per year and releasing two live albums in the past decade. In August, however, he released just his second studio recording in the past six years, “Velvet,” a Top 15 country album. LaRue will return to the area for a show Saturday at George’s Majestic Lounge. Admission to the 9 p.m show is $15.

Elsewhere, Walter Savage plays jazz tonight (Jan. 20) at Hjem Restaurant and Boom! Kinetic takes over George’s Majestic Lounge the same evening.

We’ll see you around, and have an awesome weekend.
