PERPETUAL GROOVE
9 p.m. Revolution. $10.

If you're a casual fan of Athens, Ga., jam-circuit heavies Perpetual Groove, you'll want to take note: The band is going on an indefinite hiatus effective April 6, and this run of shows — Wednesday in Oxford, Thursday in Little Rock, Friday in Memphis and Saturday at George's Majestic Lounge in Fayetteville — are among the only ones currently scheduled.

Frontman Brock Butler wrote a letter on the band's website recently that outlined the reasons for the break. "Trying to find balance, break bad habits and develop good ones while continuing a life on the road is something I haven't been able to do," he wrote.

The other members, Adam Perry, Matthew McDonald and Albert Suttle, will continue to perform as Ghost Owl. As for the hardcore PGroove fans, they've probably already made plans to catch all of these shows. The Revolution show is 18-and-older.

The Presbytery also expressed its opposition to a pending House bill that, in the name of "conscience," would protect those who discriminate against gay people.
