It’s a short work week and many probably will be winding down on Wednesday in anticipation of long drives or a day spent in the kitchen on Thursday but for those who are considering Wednesday the start of the weekend, you’ve got some great music choices.
If you didn’t snap up Beach Bunny (The Big Room Bar) or Angela Perley (Natalie’s – Grandview) tickets in advance, sadly, you’ll have to find alternate plans as both shows are sold out.
It’ll be 1992 at Ace of Cups as Greenhorn and Feversmile – a potent one-two combination back in the early ’90s – reunite and share a stage for perhaps the first time in 20+ years. No joke, if you had asked me in 1992 where I expected these two bands to be in 2019, I would have said headlining arenas, I even wrote something to that effect for a college paper back in the day. Thanksgiving is all about seeing friends and family and if you hung out at Stache’s anytime between 1991 and 1994, expect to feel right at home at Ace of Cups. Mr. Tiger is opening the show – bring earplugs!
Over at Little Rock Bar, Lost Radicals – a new, online t-shirt based brand – is holding a launch party. If only the Fashion Meets Music Fest could have delivered an event like the one this promises to be, maybe we’d be anxiously refreshing our internet browsers over the next couple of weeks in anticipation of a lineup reveal. Lost Radicals founder Dave Barber has planned quite the shindig – expect fashion (limited-edition launch day t-shirts will be available), food (from Guzman Cuisine), drinks (signature cocktails presented by Jameson Irish Whiskey) and, of course, music. I don’t know if Barber is being coy or if the headliner requested to be billed as Sidd Finch (if you’re not familiar with Sidd Finch, Google it!) but this will be a homecoming gig for the singer/songwriter who was one of Rolling Stone’s 2014 Best New Artists. DJ Charles Erickson will be spinning music that fits the Lost Radicals aesthetic following the headliner’s set. For more info about the launch party and the products, head to www.lostradicals.com.
Thanksgiving is about traditions and Jesse Henry is back at Rumba Cafe for another run through of Tom Petty‘s Wildflowers album. It’s always a risk covering a legendary album but Henry’s up to the task and the reviews from years past have been stellar so you can’t lose if you find yourself up front and singing along to “You Don’t Know How it Feels” on Wednesday night.
