Welcome to the first installment of CheckOneTwo, one guy’s view of the Central Arkansas music scene.  

It’s an exciting time to be in Lotta Rock, with a number of acts teetering somewhere between making it big, making it loud, or just making it for the joy of making it.  Any night in town will find punk house shows on Schiller, metal screamofests at Vino’s, high energy rock at WhiteWater, hip hop at Downtown Music or The Scene…in short, there’s a lot going on musically here.  I’m just happy to be here while it’s going on.

In the movie Almost Famous, Lester Bangs counsels a would-be rock writer to make his reputation by being “honest…and unmerciful.”  I’m no Lester Bangs, but I will call it the way I see it.   This space is designed to review the Little Rock music scene–reviews of albums, my take on shows, and hopefully some insight into what’s going on out there.  I’ll also do my best to keep a good calendar of upcoming shows and events in the Little Rock area.

 Your comments and suggestions are welcome, appreciated, and hoped for.  If I rag a band that you love, let me know.  If I love a band you hate, tell me why.  Music is the universal language, but we don’t all hear it the same way.

 Sibilance,

 Glen
