Live at the Five & Dime Double Feature June 10

The third season of the "Live at the Five & Dime" concert series continues online at 5 p.m. Wednesday, June 10, with a double feature.

Hogtown Hot Club will debut Ed Nicholson's new song, "Djangoin' Nowhere." The group features Jim Greeson, Ed Nicholson, Jim Jernigan, and Mike Johnson playing Parisian swing jazz of the 1930s and 40s.

And Chris Teal and Quintopus will play two short group improvisations based on set interactive constraints and recorded from bandmembers' locations around the world. The group features Chris Teal (drums), Nick Finzer (trombone), Doug Stone (saxophone), and Matthew Golombisky (bass).

Quintopus mixes up its own electro-pop futurism out of a little jazz, a little rock, a splash of alternative indie pop, and a good old-fashioned sense of adventure. The band was formed in Rochester, New York, in 2009 by drummer Chris Teal and guitarist Mike Frederick and has released three albums on ears&eyes Records including "Voyage to Ornoc," "April Showers," and "Prehistoric Beach."

All four musicians are faculty for the IfCM Jazz and Creative Music Camp: Virtual Edition taking place June 22-26 for youth and adults hosted in collaboration with the University of Arkansas by the U of A Community Music School. Information is at

This year's Live at the Five & Dime series is beginning with short concerts online instead of on the Bentonville square. New concerts are posted each Wednesday at 5 p.m., but you can tune in anytime to enjoy this season's past performances by faculty and student musicians from the U of A's Department of Music and their friends.

Live at the Five & Dime At Home is a collaboration between the Department of Music, the Walmart Museum, and Downtown Bentonville Inc.
