The once anti-Nashville based Joe Buck gained notoriety as the guitarist of Th’ Legendary Shack Shakers. As Hank III’s villainous sideman onstage, the snarling upright bass player became infamously recognizable. Joe Buck Yourself is now a bona fide evil motherfucking, one man band. This unique blend of hellbilly punk rock ain’t your grandma’s hillbilly music. Joe Buck yourself, motherfuckers!


Viva Le Vox is an experimental punk rock roots band from Lake Worth, Florida. The influences are diverse, though the most predominant are early 20th century jazz, 1950s Rock-n-Roll, and 1970s punk rock. The music has been described as a mix between Gogol Bordello and Tom Waits, or Django Reinhardt meets The Clash- either way a gypsy jazz punk rock-n-roll stew no matter which part of the last century you’re familiar with.
08/23/14 Amasa Hines Amasa Hines in Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 10:00pm. Admission: $7. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. https://www.facebook.com/AmasaHines

Amasa Hines was formed in 2010 and their debut album All The World There Is was released in January of 2014.

08/27/14 Punk Rock show with HARD GIRLS ( California ) w/ Broadcaster ( Long Island, NY ) Punk Rock show with HARD GIRLS ( California ) w/ Broadcaster ( Long Island, NY ) in Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Hard-Girls/204783296927
https://www.facebook.com/BroadcasterNY

Hard Girls are on Asian Man Records. Max and Morgan were in Pteradon, Mike was in Shinobu, now all three are in Hard Girls. In fact, they are Hard Girls. If you add Jesse from Operation Ivy, then you get Classics of Love. But this one is Hard Girls.

An energetic bounce and sing-along-ready vocals are two of the most immediately noticeable qualities to Broadcaster’s brand of pop-rock music. The Long Island, NY based three-piece have shown remarkable consistency in their output without releasing the same song or record twice. The result is something almost canonical-their discography is only a few releases long, but there is a well-worn feel to the music, a blend of modern punk and indie rock with a pleasant helping of 90s college rock influence. Comparisons to bands like Jawbreaker, Superchunk, and The Weakerthans are inevitable but nonetheless favorable. Their most recent release, A Million Hours, recorded with producer J. Robbins, is a concise, fully-realized display of the catchy, fuzzy energy that Broadcaster have made their own. Steady touring and consistent output of new music have helped the band grow in both popularity and songwriting prowess, and the band shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
08/28/14 Shinyribs ( Austin, TX ) Shinyribs ( Austin, TX ) in Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Admission: $10. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://www.shinyribs.org

Shinyribs is the continuation of Kevin Russell’s musical journey which began in Beaumont,TX when, at 14, he found his father’s guitar under his bed, along with a sewing machine, a billy club and a box of comic books. Luckily he chose the guitar. Following his family’s oil boom and bust migratory path he landed in Shreveport,LA where he formed his first band. Picket Line Coyotes were a Husker Du meets Elvis Costello hybrid that lived and died between the “Arklatexabamassippi” borders much like their unfortunate animal namesake. That’s what took him to Austin where The Gourds were born from those Coyote ashes. That storied band of pumpkins came to an end after 18 years of good times and hard travelin’. And from that point on Russell has been riding high on the Shinyribs river of country-soul, swamp-funk and tickle. A Shinyribs show is an exaltation of spirit. It’s a hip shaking, belly laughing, soul-singing, song-slinging, down-home house party. All styles of American music are likely to be touched on, squeezed on, kissed on by this world class band featuring Winfield Cheek on Keyboards, Keith Langford on Drums, Jeff Brown on Bass and the Tijuana Train Wreck Horns. Whether on his 6 string Uke or his Electric guitar or singing acapella Russell will entertain you like no one else. The freedom with which he moves coupled with his incredible voice is an experience in and of itself. His original songs laced with magical-realism along with novel interpretations of popular songs old and new (George Jones, TLC, Leadbelly, T-Pain) are the true art that runs throughout. He’s Burl Ives meets Al Green, Hank, Jr. meets Teddy Pendergrass. Wendell Berry meets Chuck Berry. Truly something not to be missed. A unique musical experience and an original expression of our colorful musical heritage.

Four bros from Little Rock, lost in a haze of pop.

Whale Fire is a dream pop band from Little Rock, AR trading in hazy, melodic pop tunes underpinned by reverb-heavy guitars and multi-part harmonies. The band features co-lead vocalists/guitarists John Steel and Clay Grubbs, with Matthew Steel providing backing vocals/bass guitar, and Will Vick handling drums/percussion.
09/06/14 Bobby Bare Jr Bobby Bare Jr in Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:30pm. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://www.bobbybarejr.com

Bobby Bare, Jr. could’ve phoned in a career. He could’ve exploited the fact that he’s the son of iconic Country Music Hall of Famer Bobby Bare, was born into Nashville’s Music Row elite, and counted artists like Shel Silverstein as close family friends and George Jones and Tammy Wynette as next door neighbors. Instead, Bobby blazed a path of unique songwriting craftsmanship with a voice that blows through you like an unyielding wind on the desolate prairie.

With a big-as-the-room persona, an ability to rock the doors off the most jaded of clubs, the heart to hold a room completely still with just his guitar, and a genius for arrangement, Bobby Bare, Jr. and his band of merry makers are one of the most unique bunches around. They are adept at abandoning common sense in favor of laying themselves at the feet of a rambunctious, freewheeling, and unfettered and unhinged muse.

In the late 90′s, he fronted the boss hog rock band, Bare Jr. With their two records, Boo-tay and Brainwasher, they memorably rocked out on a Nirvana-on-Skynryd-not-Sabbath groove, more indebted to the homebrew than “The Other H.” He keeps himself even busier by appearing on albums by indie rock heroes like the Silver Jews and Frank Black and My Morning Jacket. Few that we have found can combine humor, pain, and anger in such an effortlessly well-crafted manner. If encountered in public, beware: Bobby is a big, gregarious, good-natured fellow who will giddily talk music (from the Smiths to Roger Miller to Metallica to Dolly Parton–sometimes in one breath) until the bartender is tossing you both out.

Look, we LOVE Bobby’s records and we want people to hear them. Maybe our descriptions are making you scratch your head or are scaring you off. Forgive us, his music is ahead of its time and we are not sure what to say about it. All the years we all wasted getting English degrees are powerless in coming up with suitable words to describe his projects. When someone around the office is absent-mindedly whistling a tune, chances are real good that it’s, “I’ll Be Around” or “Valentine” or “Borrow Your Cape.” Bobby’s music is ample proof that commercial radio wouldn’t know a genre-bending smash hit if it ran up and bit it in the ass, and, if radio programmers weren’t all neutered corporate lapdogs, his songs would be in the broad canon of rock.

Divorce Horse
It is said the night of the seventh moon of a housing crisis, Satan himself forged five agents from the slimy underbelly of Hell for one purpose: to resurrect the dead on Planet Jupiter. Since this night, the Divorce Horse has been seen lurking in the quiet corridors of your miserably sedentary workplace, heard cackling in the pipes of your broken garbage disposal, and caught performing ritualistic goat slaughters in the dumpster behind Arby’s.

On his 2009 track “I Feel a Change Coming On,” Bob Dylan sang, “I’m listening to Billy Joe Shaver and I’m reading James Joyce.” Dylan is one of Shaver’s many famous fans; Willie Nelson calls him “the greatest songwriter alive today” and Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley have all recorded his songs. Shaver grew up in the Waco, Texas area, moving to Nashville in the mid-Sixties. He wrote 10 out of the 11 songs on Waylon Jennings’ 1973 outlaw country breakthrough, Honky Tonk Heroes, and has remained an underground hero since then. ” – Rolling Stone Magazine

After leaving Ho Hum, a band that had made the rounds from major label next big thing to independent local, Kevin Kerby decided to take a different look at the music he was making. Having enough of the typical corporate band factory, he decided to take a different path. Growing up in Texas, Kerby was in several bands with longtime friend Brent Best from Slobberbone. He moved to Arkansas to go to college. In 1992 Kerby joined Ho Hum. He started Mulehead at this time filling out the band with friends and bandmates. The first Mulehead record, Never Again, reflects this lineup. After quitting Ho Hum in 1996 he began to solidify the Mulehead lineup. He first added guitar player Dave Raymond while looking to promote Never Again. Dave had played in several local bands. Through Dave Geoff Curran joined the group to play drums. He was new to the area and had most recently played drums on Jim Roll’s 1999 release Lunnette. Brent Labeau rounded out the permanent lineup on bass guitar. Much like Kerby, Labeau, had gone the major-label route with a stint in the Gun Bunnies.

10/16/14 PATRICK SWEANY PATRICK SWEANY in Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Admission: $7. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://www.patricksweany.com

Patrick Sweany likes the spaces in between. On a given night (or on a given album) he’ll swing through blues, folk, soul, bluegrass, maybe some classic 50s rock, or a punk speedball. He’s a musical omnivore, devouring every popular music sound of the last 70 years, and mixing ‘em all together seamlessly into his own stew. Yet, the one thing that most people notice about Patrick isn’t his ability to copy – it’s his authenticity. Like his heroes, artists like Bobby “Blue” Bland, Doug Sahm, Joe Tex, Patrick somehow manages to blend all of these influences into something all his own. It’s no wonder that as a kid he immersed himself in his dad’s extensive record collection: 60s folk, vintage country, soul, and, of course, blues. Patrick spent hours teaching himself to fingerpick along to Leadbelly, Lightnin’ Hopkins, and other folk-blues giants. In his late teens, Patrick began playing the clubs and coffeehouses around Kent, OH. He quickly gained a reputation for the intricate country blues style he was developing: part Piedmont picking, part Delta slide – with an equally impressive deep, smooth vocal style. But Patrick wouldn’t stay in the acoustic world for long. His love of 50s era soul and rock fused with the adrenaline-soaked garage punk revival happening throughout the Rust Belt pushed Pat to form a band. After 4 critically acclaimed CDs (two produced by longtime collaborator Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys), Patrick has expanded his touring radius to 49 states and the UK. He’s played premiere festivals all over the U.S., and supported national acts such as The Black Keys, The Gourds, The Wood Brothers, Wayne Hancock, Hot Tuna, and Paul Thorn on tour. His latest record, Close To The Floor, hit the streets July 16, 2013. It was recorded to 2″ tape in Nasheville, TN and features contributions from Joe McMahan (Luella & The Sun, Allsion Moorer, Webb Wilder), Ron Eoff (Cate Brothers, Levon Helm), Jon Radford (Justin Townes Earle, Lilly Hiatt), and Ryan Norris (Lambchop), among others. Close To The Floor is a gritty, hard look at some very difficult recent events in Sweany’s life and recalls the halcyon days of Muscle Shoals releases by Dan Penn, Eddie Hinton and Leon Russell.
