White Shockolate


We mentioned earlier that Friday’s lineup at Wakarusa is looking pretty awesome. But if you’re not on the Mulberry Mountain, there’s still plenty of music to check out in Fayetteville.

The Artosphere Festival Orchestra will perform their final concert of the season Friday night at Walton Arts Center. Here’s more info on that.

Well loved locals Farmer and the Markets, who typically set up during the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market, will be playing at Mojo’s Pints & Pies Friday night at around 8 p.m.

There’s a rock show at The Lightbulb Club with Witchsister, Theta Thereom, and Animal Noise.

Texas songwriter Jacob Furr is at Smoke & Barrel Friday night. We checked out some of his songs on Bandcamp, and liked what we heard.
