9 p.m. Maxine's. Free.
For years now, Maxine’s in Hot Springs has quietly been bringing compelling talents like Mobley to town in the middle of the week and charging no admission, and the club deserves a few more salutes for that than it’s been given.
This Wednesday, We Are the Asteroid — a Texas trio comprised of former members of Tribes of Neurot and Butthole Surfers and a host of other Lone Star State-forged noise rock — takes its latest purple 7″ vinyl calling card o’ freakout, “Say Goodbye,” to the Central Avenue venue, the same day of its release. It’s probably gonna get weird; there might be wizard hats; and you may need to avoid scheduling anything terribly important Thursday morning. Here’s fair warning in the form of a singalong that doesn’t require any actual singing, “Space Impala.”
