It’s hard to find a Leftover Salmon live track under 6 minutes. This one, “Breakin’ Thru,” clocks in at about 9 minutes.
How does one describe Leftover Salmon? Here’s how the band from Colorado does it: “the originators of the “Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass” genre. Whatever that might be.

The show begins at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and are $20.View Post colorado, fayetteville, friday, george's majestic lounge, industry, leftover, leftover salmon, music industry news, polyethnic, whatever
While I plan on stopping short of saying which songs you should play for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, we have compiled some Northwest Arkansas-specific events for the occasion.
And, yes, some of them involve music.
Like the Valentine’s Day at GoodFolk Productions concert featuring Still on the Hill, who are release a new album called “Red Curtain” that evening. Admission to the show, which also features Walter Savage, is $15. Reservations should be made by calling 521-1812. [Update: We understand the show is now sold out.]
For other ideas, I’d suggest revisiting our Valentine’s idea guide, which published Friday in What’s Up! You can find the story online (but you have to be a subscriber to see the full story).
Hope you have a happy Valentine’s Day.
Also, I included a video below. It’s The Cure’s “Lovesong.” It might not be appropriate for your Valentine playlist, but it’s definitely inappropriate I have yet to include a Cure song on this blog until now.View Post admission, blues, friday, greenhouse, ideas, love, of-course, productions, valentine's music
