No butts at White Water

Since it was founded in 1972, White Water Tavern has been, at various times and often all at once, a biker bar, a rendezvous for Arkansas politicos and the definitive Mecca for live, local music. Maybe the only constant has been an ever-present cloud of cigarette smoke. But today's a new day.

Equal parts Lynn Anderson, Robert Pollard and John Lurie, with a flair for fashion akin to Granny's in “The Beverly Hillbillies,” Holly Golightly comes to Sticky Fingerz.
