The Phlegms Jesse James Johnson

Bills across Little Rock’s finest venues are bursting at the seams with a variety of Natural State talent this weekend.

Your options on Friday are the most extensive, with (at least) three local spots hosting shows dominated by Arkansas artists, so expect some decision fatigue. At White Water Tavern, Fayetteville crooner Dylan Earl and Little Rock howler Adam Faucett are joined by folk singer-songwriter Judy Blank, who hails from the Netherlands. Tickets here.


In stark contrast, Rev Room is presenting a collection of dark and synth-heavy acts, all of which are from Northwest Arkansas: Modeling, White Mansion, Fossils of Ancient Robots and Damien Hearse. Tickets here. At Vino’s, Fayetteville punk outfit The Phlegms and Little Rock all-girl trio DOT will share the stage with femme rock out-of-towners Miranda and the Beat (New York City) and stepmom (Oklahoma City, Oklahoma). Tickets here.


For the rest of the weekend, White Water has you covered, with Saturday focusing on dreamy indie pop (Way Away and The Chores from Little Rock; Resting from Fayetteville) and Sunday leaning a little heavier (Little Rock’s PETT, Head Empty and Stressor are supporting Athens, Georgia, band Monsoon). Tickets here.
