Cain’s Ballroom 2010 lineup highlights

Cain’s Ballroom is sometimes overlooked by Northwest Arkansas music fans simply because it’s located outside the state lines. What we sometimes forget is that Tulsa is no farther away than Little Rock.

We don’t talk much about events outside of the city limits here on the Fayetteville Flyer but we have had a few folks suggest the inclusion of some larger, non-local venues in our coverage from time to time.

After we received word this morning that Cain’s had just nailed down an April 22 appearance of The Dead Weather (Jack White), we figured a little Tulsa love couldn’t hurt.

Here’s a sampling of what the 86-year-old venue has in store for 2010 so far…
