Friday:

All those folks on the poster above plus more, I hear, play the second of three CD release parties for the new Thick Syrup Records “Arkansas Compilation.” Should be a good Cliff Notes-style survey of a big chunk of local music. Also, Burt Taggert (Big Cats) and Isaac Alexander (The Easys and Big Silver) don’t play solo often, and I’m pretty sure this is Fits and Starts last show or at least penultimate show. 9 pm, $6. Buy the record at the show or online here.

Saturday:

Conduit, the most complete local label, celebrates the release of its second big compilation album, “Theme Muzik,” with a concert at Revolution. All the family will represent–Epiphany, DK, and Suga City (Arkansas Bo and Goines)–plus extended people like the Dat Heat boys and girl, YK from Grim Muzik, and a whole host of other local talent.

Epiphany’s been doing this thing lately with a live band, who call themselves One Night Stand. And honey-voiced local RnBer Gina Gee sings the hooks. Woo, son. It’s a sight to behold. And every time I’ve seen them–three times prior, I think–they’ve gotten better.

So look out for that.

Here’s a little preview action for you. “5 Dollas” by Epiphany feat. Gina Gee.
