FRIDAY 2/1

Vino's has lined up an evening of totally rad local rock, with The Bad Years, Glittercore and Crooked Roots, 9 p.m., $5.

From Lawtell, La., Dikki Du & The Zydeco Krewe returns for another night of wild bayou revelry, White Water Tavern, 10 p.m., $6.

From New Orleans comes the Russian folk/punk hybrid Debauche (Gogol Bordello are fans, btw) with Little Rock's own Dangerous Idiots, 18-and-older, Stickyz, 9:30 p.m., $6. Debauche also plays at Midtown Saturday night, 12:30 a.m., $5.

SATURDAY 2/2

ImprovLittleRock has two shows, one for you early-to-bed types and another for the night owls. There's a 7:00 p.m. performance, in which two teams will play improv games, competing for audience laughs and the approval of a judge, and another at 10:00 p.m. that the group bills as Flurries — dozens of short-form sketches that offer a sort of comedy hit-and-run. Each show is $8 at the door at The Public Theatre.

If you want to catch some tight local hip-hop with a live backing band, Epiphany and Tomorrow Maybe host The Jam Session at Montego, with the sax stylings of JWhite, 10 p.m.

Blues-rockers extraordinaire The Sideshow Tragedy come to the Spa City, with Ben Franks & The Bible Belt Boys and Fitra, Maxine's, 8 p.m., $5 adv., $7 door.

The Afterthought screens the film "True Delta" and hosts a live performance from Lucious Spiller, 9 p.m., $7.

If bull-riding is your jam, don't miss the PBR Lucas Oil Professional Touring Series, Verizon Arena, 7:30 p.m., $17-$52.
