Making It Happen: Squint's Dane Adrian

Written by Tamara Styer

It’s happened again.

Your brow furrows, you scratch your head, you order a double.

On the Scene: Springfield MO

     Springfield, Missouri was the place to be Saturday the 11th, where several of the top bands in the area performed across town.
     Alternative indie rock band Canto 17 opened at Nathan P. Murphy’s with an acoustic set, performing their laid-back, Jack Johnson-style original tunes as well as some Dave Matthews Band covers.

SPiNRaD: Life Returns

Written by David J. Rivera | Photographed by James Moore

SPiNRaD is one of the most talented and promising groups in the area. Their music is a new breed of jazz, rock and funk that has been steadily wedging its head through the bluegrass and country roots of Northwest Arkansas. Their prominence in the music scene has begun to generate a national interest as they plan their first cross-country tour. And they are having a blast doing it. But underneath the liveliness onstage and the constant wisecracks offstage, they are serious and driven toward their passions with emotional severity. Deitra Mag’s own David J. Rivera writes.
