From the return of a native son, to the return of one of Arkansas favorite music festivals, here’s Shindigmusic’s picks for best live music events in the state this week.
Thursday, June 21 – George’s Majestic Lounge – Fayetteville
FINALLY, Jeh-sea Welles returns to Fayetteville! It’s been a big year since the release of last year’s stellar Codeine EP. Since then, the band has played Bonnaroo, The Governors Ball, Austin City Limits, and toured with the likes of Royal Blood, Greta Van Fleet, and The Highly Suspect. Now they have a new album, Red Trees and White Trashes, and a big, big homecoming. Tickets are $12.
Friday, June 22 – The White Water Tavern – Little Rock
Holy shit! That was the first thing to popped in my head when this information hit the web. The second thing was their 1977 CLASSIC “Sonic Reducer.” We’ll be there and so should you! Ain’t it fun? Tickets are $15
Friday, June 22 – King’s Live Music – Conway
Arkansas’ favorite Wrangler-clad troubadour, Dylan Earl, will be performing songs from his excellent 2017 album New Country To Be this Friday night at King’s Live Music in Conway. Drink lots of beer, tip yer bartenders and enjoy one of Shindigmusic’s favorite cowboys. Yippee-Ki-Yay, motherfuckers!
Friday, June 22 – Arkansas Music Pavilion – Rogers
Country superstar Chris Stapelton has been riding high since the release of his 2015, triple platinum selling album, Traveller. This will be Stapleton’s second appearance at the Arkansas Music Pavilion, and based on last year’s show, this most likely won’t be his last. Tickets are $34
Friday, June 22-Sunday, June 24 – Kessler Mountain Regional Park – Fayetteville
Homegrown revamps its 2018 appearance from a three-day music and camping festival to a three-day music and sports experience. Held at Kessler Mountain Regional park in Fayetteville, the event features live music performances by The Jeff Austin Band, Arkansauce, George Porter Jr., John Stickley Trio, Handmade Moments, and more. This is a family-friendly event and is FREE to the public. Check out the full schedules below.
