Wednesday To-do: March 24

Just how many Fayettevilles are there in the United States? Does anybody know? Every time I hear the name, I immediately assume it’s in reference to our Fayetteville, but obviously there are others.

I ask because I nearly started a to-do post about how tonight’s show at Greenhouse Grille features Fayetteville’s own Jonathan Byrd. Then I thought, “but I’m not familiar with this guy.” On further investigation, I noticed on Wikipedia that Mr. Byrd is in fact from Fayetteville, but not our Fayetteville. He was born in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

I knew about North Carolina’s version, and I’m aware that our city was actually named after Fayetteville, Tennessee, but how many more are there? Anybody?

Now that you know who’s playing at Greenhouse Grille tonight, let me add a bit more. Also scheduled to play is actual-local Tiffany Christopher who opens the show at around 5 p.m. I should also add that this show is a production of not only Greenhouse Grille but also the Hembree House Concerts folks who, of course, are Bryan and Bernice Hembree of 3 Penny Acre. I listened to a little bit of Jonathan Byrd and he’s certainly good. But hey, anybody with 3PA’s blessing is A-OK in my book.

For those who were looking forward to hearing Devil’s Promenade at Smoke & Barrel tonight, I’ve got bad news. The show has been canceled. But alas, DJ Bizar is coming to the rescue. And so is S&B’s 25% off any whiskey special tonight.

Elsewhere, Ryan Burton is at George’s, Liturgy and Antarctichrist are at Rogue, and Nickelodeon has one more night at Walton Arts Center.
