Sing loud, punk: The Karaoke Underground comes to Fayetteville

February 27th, 2015 at 12:31 pm

As a rule, I don’t write about karaoke on this blog. There are too many opportunities, and it rarely differs from place to place — you can sing the same 3,000 pop, classic rock and country songs at any of … Continue reading

Pallbearer, a metal band from Little Rock, will bring their tour to Fayetteville in March. You’ve been alerted/warned. I try to take a neutral stand on upcoming concerts. Except when I can’t because I’ve already gushed about the artists involved. … Continue reading
