The State of Live Music in Fayetteville | The Ozark EchoClipped Fresh — By Christopher Spencer on September 2, 2011 at 12:07 am
Justin Gage of The Ozark Echo laments the state of local music in Fayetteville. In my opinion, we have some great homegrown talent, but when it comes to pulling big buzz bands to Fayetteville, our city – at 72K and a 23.5 K student population – doesn’t bring in the acts it should.
Here’s how Justin says it:
The Fayetteville music scene has seen better days. Have you seen the acts coming to town this fall? Forgive me if you are a Charlie Daniels, Meat Puppets, Chris Robinson (from the Black Crowes) or a Candlebox fan, but quenching my musical thirst will once again happen after a long drive to Tulsa or Kansas City. Sure we’ve got Lucero, Dr. Dog, and “The Gambler” Kenny Rogers coming, but where are the relevant, progressive, critically acclaimed acts that seem to hit every college town except our own?
