BIG SILVER
9:30 p.m., White Water Tavern.


Put this one on your weekend list if you dig extremely tasteful and well-executed pop music with stick-in-your-head melodies and a dusty American edge to it, informed in equal part by The Beatles as by The Band. If that description makes your ears perk up, then by all means check this out.

But the odds are good that if you dig that sound and have lived in Central Arkansas for longer than 10 minutes, you're already aware that Big Silver is among the finest practitioners of such fare. Frontman Isaac Alexander is one of the region's keenest songwriters (evidenced by his many bands and his excellent solo albums, including 2012's ace "Antivenin Suite"), so don't miss this one.

  • Thursday To-Do: KEN mode

    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.
