The Final Countdown I’m a sentimental fool. Let me just get that out of the way. I thought The Revolutioners/Highly Suspect show was going to be my last time at my beloved Juanita’s, but I wasn’t able to quit my second home that easily. I saw it out until the end. Last week was a […]

An Impossible Anthem Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf) is back, and she brought the 90’s with her. The newly-released single, “Impossible”, marks Lacey’s debut as a solo artist, after departing the hugely successful band Flyleaf in 2012. First impression of “Impossible”: It starts with a creepy, almost industrial-ish intro that Just Kidding!‘s straight into a 90’s grrl […]

Hellyeah sold out Juanita’s in Little Rock.
I discovered that history really does like to repeat itself. When I wrote the show preview, I mentioned that the small barricade set up at the 2012 Rev Room show collapsed during the set, due to the pushing and surging of the crowd; everyone trying to get just a little bit closer to the band. So when I walked into Juanita’s, I was ecstatic to see a large metal barricade set up in front of the stage.

Juanita’s doesn’t always have those in place. I personally loved it because it meant there was a small bit of room for a photo pit so we could move around a bit and not be stuck in the same spot (openers and all) for the whole show. This was wonderful for the first two bands. Things got a little crazy during Hellyeah. I’ll get back to that…
