The first time Denton, Texas band Seryn tried to play in Fayetteville, the summer heat briefly took the life out of their tour van. The group is back on tour, though, and barring any vehicle trouble between here and Nashville, they’ll be on stage tonight at Smoke & Barrel Tavern after a special Halloween edition of Tavern Trivia. Meet Seryn in the video below.
Over at George’s, there’s a big show with Galactic and The Revivalists. On stage with Galactic will be Corey Glover (Living Colour) and Corey Henry (Rebirth Brass Band). Tickets are $20 and can be bought at the George’s ticket site.
The MC Frontalot show that was originally set for Tuesday night at Smoke & Barrel is now happening tonight over at Ryleigh’s Boom Boom Room. Also set to play the $3 show are The OneUps and Lucio.
