LIVE! A Music Calendar

The Lost Dog Street Band show set for 6 p.m. Aug. 3 at the Eureka Springs City Auditorium will be the last for at least a little while.

Frontman Benjamin Tod recently announced that he’ll be taking a hiatus from music, saying in an Instagram post, “I feel a deep change in my life and in my soul the past few months that is eating me from the inside out. The older I get, the more I care about my community and my family and the less I care about performing and interacting with the larger world. There are a lot of reasons for this change in my priorities, and I will talk about them down the line.” Tod adds that he’ll still be writing and may release a book.

Tod is set to release a solo album, “Songs I Swore I’d Never Sing,” on Sept. 23. According to the band’s bio: “while ‘Glory’ centered on Tod’s experiences with addiction, sobriety and redemption, ‘Songs I Swore I’d Never Sing’ finds him learning to live with the moments of stillness, after a lifetime of constant motion.” Keep up with Lost Dog Street Band and Tod at
