12/15/16 THE SIDESHOW TRAGEDY Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://thesideshowtragedy.com

Hailing from Austin, Texas, The Sideshow Tragedy is an indie blues-roots-rock duo. Frontman Nathan Singleton grew up playing in blues clubs in East Texas as a teenager, where his dad was (and is) an acoustic blues fanatic and collector of vintage National resonator guitars. Nathan devoured old blues music, while at the same time, gravitated toward listening to rock, punk rock, funk, new wave, and legendary songwriters and musicians too numerous to mention.

Singleton first met his songwriting partner and collaborator, drummer Jeremy Harrell in 2001 when he was looking to get a band together after years of playing solo. Singleton says, “Jeremy and I jammed a little bit, and he had a real funky thing going, and was hungry to play. We made a lot of different kinds of records (dabbling in alt country and narrative songwriting) and saw the band swell from its original duo configuration to a 3 and 4 piece band before trimming the fat and defining ourselves aesthetically as a duo with our last record, Persona, in 2012.”

Harrell cut his teeth in East Texas as well where he began his journey as a self-taught musician in his teenage years, buying his first (secondhand) drum kit with his last $100 at the end of his freshman year in high school. Jeremy says from the moment he and Nathan met, they had a “telepathic connection where we could just tell where the other guy was going and it felt great.”

Austin Live Weekly put it this way: “Only having two members in the band, it’s hard to believe how much noise comes forth from the blues-rock duo, Sideshow Tragedy. Singleton has the stage presence of Iggy Pop and Keith Richards combined, and he wields his steel guitar like a warlock, playing overdriven riffs with a feral intensity.”

12/16/16 NIKKI HILL! Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Admission: $10. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://nikkihillmusic.com

Those who have seen Carolina girl Nikki Hill sing her ass off agree—this isn’t just another newcomer on the scene, this is a ‘whiplash’ moment. Where did this fireball come from? Why haven’t I heard of her before? If you haven’t heard of Nikki Hill yet, you soon will, and once you see her perform, you won’t forget her.

Hill and her band have been touring extensively following the independent 2015 release ‘Heavy Hearts Hard Fists’ and debut album ‘Here’s Nikki Hill’, released in 2013. With a no-filter energy, and explosive live show, they deliver a sound that will make you believe in rock ‘n’ roll again! Nikki’s unique voice—with raw rock and soul dynamics mixed with the strength, passion, and honesty of blues shouters of the past—steers the driving guitar and a tight rhythm section to create a breath of fresh air with their fast forward approach to American roots music.

Nikki Hill’s self-titled, independently released EP in June of 2012 created a heavy and sudden international underground buzz that the band has traveled with across America and overseas to Europe and Australia. Those four tunes penned by Hill, combined with memorable live performances, have drawn a wide range of people from every avenue and musical taste to their shows. Her enthusiasm for music is simply contagious. One club advertisement will call Nikki “The Southern Fireball”, “the New Soul Sensation”, “amazing R&B Shouter”, and even “the new Queen of Rock n’ Roll”.

If you haven’t heard of her yet, prepare for your ‘whiplash moment’. You have been warned.

The Mallett Brothers Band is an original band from Maine. With a unique style that spans across country, rock and roll, Americana and alternative country, the band has grown a dedicated fan base across the country since releasing their debut record in 2009. With the release of their fourth studio album, “Lights Along the River,” the band continues its rigorous touring schedule (playing upwards of 150 shows a year across the country), and its mission of sending genuine, heartfelt and independent music out into the world.

Willi Carlisle has, according to one reviewer, “an authenticity it takes some songwriters years to achieve.” After years of collecting folklore, playing or calling square dances, and working in the avant-garde, Willi Carlisle Goehring has turned to his first and best craft: telling stories through song. With a style forged in the fire of Ozark oldtime music and his ever-growing collection of antique music, Carlisle’s multi-instrumental stories hoot, stomp, and saunter through joys and troubles uniquely southern and timelessly true. Equally comfortable on banjo, fiddle, and guitar, Carlisle has earned accolades for his versatility with performances at the Ozark Folk Center, the Fayetteville Roots Festival, Ozarks at Large, the Poets Loft, and with opening performances for touring acts like National Park Radio, Daniel Romano, Shawn James, and Amy Lavere. ​

Hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, and possessing a voice that the Onion A.V. Club warns “knocks your brain into the back of your skull”, Adam Faucett has drawn comparisons from Tim Buckley to Cat Power to Otis Redding.

Called “one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer.” (Arkansas Times) Faucett has again pushed the borders of his “part folk, part blues, part elemental rock stomp, part unidentifiable cosmic holler” (Arkansas Democrat Gazette) with the release Blind Water Finds Blind Water, a record of his most arresting and beautiful songs to date.

American Princes is an indie rock band from Little Rock, AR. The band started in 2003 when David Slade, then-bassist John Beachboard and drummer Matthew Quin moved to Little Rock from New York City. Within their first year in Arkansas, they met guitarist Collins Kilgore and released their first album, We Are the People, on Max Recordings. In 2004, after their first national tour, American Princes released their second album, Little Spaces, also on Max Recordings. Luke Hunsicker (Sugar and the Raw) joined the 2004 tour in support of Little Spaces.

In 2005, the band signed with Yep Roc Records and went into Richmond’s Sound of Music studio with producer Alan Weatherhead to record their most recent album Less and Less. Since the release of Less and Less some of the bands American Princes have shared the stage with include The Flaming Lips, The Roots, Big Star, The Hold Steady, Spoon, De La Soul, Lucero, Catfish Haven, John Doe, The Apples in Stereo, and others. In 2006 guitarist Will Boyd joined the band, and in the Summer of 2007 the band began work on their fourth album with producer Chuck Brody (Wu Tang Clan, Northern State) in New York.

In January 2007 Magnet Magazine released their Best Albums of 2006 list on which Less and Less appeared as number 17. American Princes’ 2008 release Other People was voted #1 on Magnet Magazine’s Best Albums of 2008 list.

12/29/16 MOJO DEPOT Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. https://www.reverbnation.com/mojodepot

·Mojo Depot began some two decades ago when Jason Adams (drums), Tyndall Jackson (guitar and vocals), Rob Moore (vocals and guitar) and John “Johnny-B” Wright (bass and vocals) got together under the name The Loose Change, performing at clubs that included the White Water Tavern. After a few years, the band moved to the Bay Area and then to Los Angeles, where a debut CD, Phantom Train, had its beginnings. A new name emerged, Mojo Depot, and the group traveled and wrote more music, which became the next CD, Crazy to Believe. For a time, the band was a coast-to-coast phenomenon, with Moore living in Berkeley, Calif., and Jackson attending the Berklee College of Music in Boston. Eventually, the two rejoined their Arkansas pals and began recording off-and-on in Arkansas City, where they could work in seclusion, away from the temptations of the big city of Little Rock. Like the “band of brothers” theyconsider themselves, Mojo Depot has opened shows for The Allman Brothers Band, The Neville Brothers and The Cate Brothers.

02/15/17 ADIA VICTORIA Little Rock, AR The White Water Tavern United States
Time: 9:00pm. Admission: $10. Address: 2500 West 7th Street 72205. Venue phone: (501) 375-8400. http://adiavictoria.com

Adia Victoria is establishing a fresh reference point on the musical landscape. From blood-born howls to idiosyncratic phrasing, she is the big red dot saying You Are Here. The Nashville-based artist travels the lands of rock, afro punk, and country, squarely situated in the continent of the Blues. Ask about her artistic goals, and the songwriter/vocalist will say, “I want to shine a light on the unseen, and speak the unspeakable.” Adia Victoria is a truth teller. She admits, “I don’t necessarily paint myself in a flattering light. This isn’t the pop version of pretty or the strategically posed pretty-ugly. Sometimes I’m just ugly. There’s a brat in some of these songs, selfish, naïve, vengeful, but there’s also a tender eye that just wants the listener to feel seen and understood.” Rolling Stone Magazine featured Adia Victoria as one of “10 New Artists You Need to Know.” The Village Voice called her an “eerie, intriguing songwriter,” with “bone chilling guitar riffs and lyrics topped with candid scorn. Vogue highlighted the recording artist as one of “5 Beauties Who Answer to Afropunk’s Rebellious Call.”
