MILDRIOT
9 p.m., Town Pump. $3.


When we last saw Michael Chavez, he was playing last year's Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase under the name Miles Rattz.

Since then, he's changed his name to Mildriot and finished an album, "Fought Songs," which is due for release in February via Sister 9 Recordings, which is apparently somewhere in the UK (their website hypes him as their "first US-based artist").

The songs are endearingly unpolished and dizzy and simple — home recordings that seem rooted in the hushed and insular late '90s and early-aughts indie rock of bands like Grandaddy and the Unicorns.

  • Of Montreal talks 'Little Rock' and why they're coming back after all

    Of Montreal is playing at the Rev Room on May 2, which might come as a surprise to anyone who's ever heard their song "Little Rock," a bonus track from their 2008 album "Skeletal Lamping." A short acoustic demo, the song references a terrible experience the band had here in town and ends with singer Kevin Barnes's solemn promise, "The only guarantee is that we're never coming back to Little Rock." As the music fades out, he clarifies: "No, we're never coming back to your shitty little town."
