Local legends from Trout Fishing in America will perform a rare happy hour set in Fayetteville at George’s on Friday night. Guitarist Ezra Idlet’s daughter, popular local songwriter Dana Louise, will also join the band on stage for a portion of the show. Should be a good one. Also, The Odds will also perform a happy hour set. Later on, locals Foley’s Van will perform a late-night set.
Memphis blues-rockers, The Soul Thieves are in town for a show at Smoke & Barrel Saturday night, and there’s an outdoor show at Kingfish featuring Little Rock band Big Ginsburg and locals Comfortable Brothers.
Also Friday night, classic rockers Boston are set to perform in Rogers at The Arkansas Music Pavilion.
