Satuday, March 30th

New York City Queens

Huge Bear’s Den Pizza favorites, New York City Queens are coming back!! From all the way down in Houston, Texas, the Queens mash together pretty much every type of pop imaginable, from surf-pop riffage to jangly, Elliott Smith-esque folk to ’70s-retro power pop to shimmery dreampop to head-nodding, upbeat New Wave, and heat it up ’til it all melts and intermingles and mixes, coming out a candy-colored, thoroughly great pop-rock amalgam that’s just about impossible for a pop-song fanatic to resist. Some bands take years to hit their stride — these guys only needed 10 months.


  Saturday, February 19th The See

One of Little Rock’s most popular indie acts, The See are coming back to Bear’s Den Pizza! Bringing joy to the lives of fans of Joy Division, Sunny Day Real Estate, and Built to Spill, Arkansas Times best described them…”It’s just about inarguable: The See are the kings of Little Rock’s current landscape of bands, spreading their infectious indie-rock fight songs to anyone who can holler along.”.

Not in the Face

Having torn apart Bear’s Den Pizza once before, Austin’s Not in the Face is returning on March 23rd to rip our faces apart again! Not in the Face is described by those in the know as; grimy, gritty and raw – Low-Fi and boisterous – blistering blues-pop – their songs reveal a mean streak and melodic sense that would make Paul Westerberg proud.  With roots tracing back to Deep East Texas, they are undeniably the real deal. From festivals like SXSW and Fun Fun Fun Fest, fans of the White Stripes & Black Keys have something new to sink their teeth into!

March 16, 2013 (Saturday) SCM Elextrix From Muscle Shoals, Alabama, with SCM Electrix…experimentation names the game. They create the sounds that flows into the ears, flying into an endless universe…then drive you straight down into the volcanos deep within Planet Earth.


March 10, 2013 (Sunday)
Cincinnati’s The Getaway is bringing their pop/rock outfit to Bear’s Den Pizza! With soaring pop melodies, and hooking, roaring guitars, prepare yourself to sing along and tap your feet until the last note of the last song. Totally infectious.

Kingston Springs

One of Nashville’s premiere bands, The Kingston Springs incorporate “bass-heavy blues (think Black Keys, sans polish, gone South) surf rock and folksy Americana”…as said by Paste Magazine (#2 on the Top 12 Tennessee Bands You Should See – Paste Magazine). From the stages of Lollapalooza, SXSW, Austin City Limits, and many more, no stage is too big or too small for these guys, and now they bring it all to Bear’s Den Pizza! These guys are blowing up, be here to be a part of this energy!

Feburary 5, 2013 (Tuesday) Adam Faucett

With one of the most incredible voices to ever hit an Arkansas stage, Little Rock’s Adam Faucett brings his “rock folk soul…brotha” to Bear’s Den Pizza! Having been featured on such popular plateaus as Daytrotter &, you’re truly doing yourself a disservice to not see this show!

“Hands down, one of the greatest, most thoughtful lyricists the state has to offer certainly one of the most respected songsmiths around. Adam Faucett  manages to get under your ribs, effortlessly.” – Arkansas Times



March 2, 2013 (Saturday) This Holy House

Conway rockers, This Holy House, make their return to Bear’s Den Pizza!  With tunes that could be described as Americana, Indie, and Rock, with a little Folk and southern influence. The music ranges from ambient, sombre ballads, to high-energy foot-stomping anthems. There’s always one definite when THH comes to BDP….and they never disappoint. A must see show.



April 2, 2013 (Tuesday)

Bradley HathawayFrom a concrete monolithic dome on a dirt road in the middle of Goshen, Arkansas, Bradley Hathaway brings his folk inspired indie rock to BDP! Don’t be mislead with the folk tag, when it’s time to get down….these guys aren’t afraid the throw a spine tingling, goosebump inducing guitar solo your way and blow everybody’s faces off!


Four new shows added! Black Cadillacs (TN), Gashcat (TX), Ray Tarantino (TN), Little Chief (AR)

March 9, 2013 (Saturday) (With Good Field)

Black Cadillacs

One of Knoxville, TN’s most popular bands, The Black Cadillacs bring their blues based indie rock to Bear’s Den Pizza! Think of an exciting blend of traditional rock & roll with a modern version of garage soul and R&B. With influences of rock pioneers such as the Who, the Rolling Stones, MC5, and Memphis blues legends like Muddy Waters and Howling Wolf, but yet a modern edge of bands like The Black Keys & My Morning Jacket, the Black Cadillacs stick close to their roots, but aren’t afraid to push the envelope. They’re raw, yet refined, loud, yet dynamic,and smooth as molasses with live shows packed to the gills with concentrated & explosive energy.

March 17, 2013 (Sunday) Gashcat

Describing themselves as a fuzzy muppet band originally from Louisiana, but currently residing in Austin, TX, Gashcat are on their way to Bear’s Den Pizza to tear the place down with their folk infused indie rock!


April 6, 2013 (Saturday) Ray Tarantino

“Consistently entertaining and utterly devoid of filler. It’s rare I get to hear an artist so obviously on the edge of major success. It seems the big time is beckoning, and with the right push and some good fortune, we could soon see Tarantino taking on the arenas of the world.” – (Leicester Bangs Blog). 


May 21, 2013 (Tuesday) little chief

Little Chief is a 3 man folk band out of Fayetteville, AR that drawing influences from folk monsters such as The Lumineers, The Head and the Heart, and Mumford & Sons! Despite being all acoustic, they still can deliver a punch of raw, live energy straight to the heart!

February 2, 2013 (Saturday) (With Quiet Company!)

Black Taxi
Black Taxi is one of NYC’s most prominent live acts, smashing an anything-goes punk ethos together with pop sensibilities, unparalleled energy, and brilliant songwriting. The result is a raucous stage show, heavy on harmonies, spitfire guitar licks, body paint, and all manner of instrumentation. Their style has been described varyingly as “grit-pop” or “dance punk”, and though their songs hint at the Talking Heads, Cake, and Daft Punk, they are driven by something entirely new and infectious. This 1-2 combo of Black Taxi & Quiet Company is gonna be a show to remembered at BDP for a long while!
