Brental Floss

If you get thirsty after work, there’s a happy hour party at George’s Majestic Lounge with music by Full House in the Garden, and Got it Covered in the lounge. Later on, local country band Backroad Anthem with perform with Norman, OK-based band, Broken Okies.

If nerd-core rap and video game music is more your style, the show for you is at Smoke & Barrel Tavern, with Brental Floss, Lucio, and The One-Ups. Happy birthday, Lucio.

For a rock show, check out The Inner Party and The Chads at LaLaLand, behind The Art Experience on MLK.

Little Craft Show

There are more holiday gift markets on Saturday. The Fayetteville Farmers’ Market will be at Botanical Garden of the Ozarks, the Little Craft Show is at the Fayetteville Town Center, and NWACCC will host their Holiday Bazaar at Nadine Baum Studios.

There’s an awesome show at Rogue Saturday night. The Fayetteville Ska Alliance, made up of members of Six Hung Sprung, A Good Fight, Well Well Well, and others, are at Rogue to celebrate the release of their new album of Christmas music, Merry, Happy, Jolly, Good Time. The band raised all of the money to cover their costs themselves so that 100% of the proceeds from record sales can go to a Spay Arkansas, a clinic that provides affordable spay and neuter services to low income families. Awesome.

Smoke & Barrel Tavern has an interesting-sounding show, with Kansas-based bluegrasss band Fast Food Junkies, and surfy-garage rockers, Old Country Death Band.

The Lightbulb Club has prolific Chicago songwriter/one-man band, Netherfriends, with local one-man band/dance party creator, Messy Sparkles. Nice combo.

If you’re feeling like some 80’s hairband tunes, your best bet is Hot Lix at George’s Majestic Lounge.
