Little Rock just got a ton of sweet shows added for late summer!
Hot Water Music’s former frontman Chuck Ragan has been making quite a name for himself these four years since the post-hardcore group broke up. Ragan will be touring in his “troubadour” style this summer and will stop in Little Rock for a show at Sticky Fingerz Chicken Shack on August 3.
Once mostly known for their cover of Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop,” Nashville’s Framing Hanley is now packing rooms with their emo-tinged alt-rock. They’re playing Juanita’s August 16.
British reggae star Pato Banton has been a big name in the reggae world ever since his work with The Beat back in the ’80s. He’s back on tour in America with a show at Revolution Music Room on August 18.
Georgia-raised singer/songwriter Corey Smith always packs the house, and frequently has sold out shows all over the country, so make sure you buy tickets for his August 21 show at Brickhouse Grill in Jonesboro (near enough to Little Rock that you should still drive!) now.
And finally, rowdy punk rockers Titus Andronicus add a Little Rock show at Revolution Music Room on August 30 to their busy tour schedule. The band has been dominating the blogosphere for much of the year.
