With a name straight out of an early-'70s children's cartoon and songs that carry a distinct air of whimsy and reckless abandon, Me and My Arrow have a good chance of leaving audience members at their show Saturday night smiling and shaking their heads. The mammoth nine-piece band, including guitars, accordions, synths, and strings, will cram onto the tiny stage at the Entry to pummel the audience with their overwhelming, orchestral rock—think a slightly smaller, less cultish version of the Polyphonic Spree. The band have been gaining steam regionally and are planning on taking their unique act down to Austin in March for South by Southwest, so it's a good time to catch them while they are still flying under the radar locally. With Ice Palace, Fort Wilson Riot, and Speed's the Name. 18+.
