Daily Flyer: Monday, Dec. 19

The First Ornaments of Christmas, a multimedia re-imagining of the Christmas story, is at George’s Majestic Lounge tonight.

In case you missed it…

The buildings once home to Tony C’s Bar & Grill and Munchies have been reduced to a pile of rubble. The last of the three buildings in the area should be gone soon as the state is slowly clearing the way for improvements to Garland Avenue.

TheatreSquared officials this week announced the cancellation and addition of select performances of “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

The Arkansas hoop Hogs snapped a two-game losing streak and improved to 6-3 in a 62-55 win over Southeastern Louisiana Saturday afternoon at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville.

Happy Birthday!

Monday To-do

It’s set to be a mostly slow week in Fayetteville as far as live music options go, but not before a couple of big Monday night shows.

If you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit, George’s hosts “The First Ornaments of Christmas,” a multimedia re-imagining of the Christmas story. The live band, comprised of Bryce Napier, Toby Wills, Trevor Bates, and Cameron Heger (formerly of Christmas Fuller Project), will perform original music rock-opera-style along with narration, and animated footage.

Over at Rogue, local band Dreamfast will take the stage tonight with Boston’s The Venetia Fair and Chicago-based Victorian Halls.


Dreamfast has been busy lately. The band just released a new video (embedded below) and has plans for a brand new album in early 2012. Plus, singer Amyh Hart told us the group will sign a record deal with a local label in January.

Also tonight, the Arkansas women’s basketball team takes on Morgan State at Bud Walton Arena and a few local restaurants host some live music.
