Friday Events, Aug. 2



Fayetteville band Basement Brew is back in town for a show at Mojo’s Pints & Pies Friday night. The band just advanced to the finals of the Little Rock Battle of the Bands, where they’ll be battling for the championship on Sept. 1 at Downtown Music Hall. Also, they just released these rad wooly mammoth t-shirts. Maybe they’ll have them at the show.
