'AN EVENING WITH BONNIE MONTGOMERY'
10 p.m. White Water Tavern. $7.

This sounds like a delightful way to spend a night out — two sets from the talented and charming Ms. Bonnie Montgomery.

Surely by now, Times readers are familiar with Montgomery. She's been a fixture on the local live music scene since relocating back to her home state in 2009, and she wasted no time in winning over audiences with her sophisticated take on country, folk and roots rock. Oh, and she wrote an opera about Bill Clinton that won all sorts of attention and earned staged readings in Little Rock and in New York.

In recent weeks, she went on tour opening for her fellow Searcy natives in Gossip, playing for packed houses on both coasts and on the Continent. At this show, Montgomery will treat the audience to her quieter, folky side with fiddle accompaniment by Geoffrey Robson, associate conductor of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, and in the second set, she'll be joined by her band (including Gossip's Nathan Howdeshell) for a full-bore honkytonkin' gitdown.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
