8 p.m. Juanita's. $25.
Down's bruising stoner riffage is the ideal soundtrack for when you're rollin' down a back highway at a steady 42 MPH in a primer-covered '86 Monte Carlo SS, burnt jernt in the ashtray, 24-oz. Mountain Dew in the cup holder, some Popeye's trash over in the passenger floorboard, softball bat in the back seat, on your way to go break a bunch of some jerkoff's expensive property. I suppose before I go too much further I should point out the whole supergroup element of Down (members of Crowbar, Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, Eyehategod). That's cool and all, but Down has its own identity separate of those other, admittedly awesome, bands. That said, if you dig those groups and somehow haven't checked out Down, well you'd better just get on it, hoss. Begin at the beginning, with 1995's "NOLA." But anyways, whereas a lot of your doomy longhairs primarily focus on channeling only the most crushing and heavy elements of Black Sabbath (and to be clear, I'm way into that), Down is the rare band that says, "Hey dudes, wait a minute. Remember 'Planet Caravan'? Remember 'Solitude'? How they'd get all cosmic 'n shit? Let's go for a little of that for a sec." And then they do, and it's awesome and then they go back to that groove-heavy Southern Sabbath-worship that so many of us love, and it's awesome again. The opening act, haarp (all lowercase and with two "a"s like that) traffics in ultra-pained sludgy crushingness. The group's forthcoming album was produced by Down's Phil Anselmo. There's a video online of Anselmo and haarp performing Pantera's classic "Walk." No telling if such a thing might happen at Juanita's. It could've been a total one-off, but who knows? There's only one way to find out for sure. RB
TY SEGALL, WHITE FENCE
9 p.m. White Water Tavern. $10.
These two dudes are primo practitioners of contemporary garage-pop, though on opposite poles on the fuzz-continuum. Ty Segall is pure blonde buff-ness, all bludgeoning fun in the weird California sun. White Fence — the solo handle of one Tim Presley — is more like that squirrelly nervous guy who spends a bit too much time in-of-doors, tinkering on a four-track machine and biting his nails while crafting perfect little psychedelic petits fours. They got together for an excellent collaborative album, "Hair," released back in April via the good ship Drag City. It's a major rager all right, a sweet-n-sour blend of Presley's spindly jangle and Segall's fuzz-ified overdrive. There's a total guitar meltdown on the track "Scissor People" that's awesome and then before you know it, the whole thing takes a jarring turn into some weird cut-up territory. The rest of the album is great, too. "Time" is an easy-rydin' anthem with some soulful jamming that evokes Crazy Horse, but man, "Scissor People" is a compellingly weird lil' gem. Segall was last at the White Water back in 2010 and put on a furious set of originals and a couple bravura covers. This here'll be a good'n. Opening act is Useless Eaters, outta Tennessee ("Tennesseein' is Tennebelievin' "). The band makes twitchy power-pop for the unhealthy set, maybe like if Crime had been inclined to try out melodies every once in a while. RB
9 p.m. Revolution. $10.
Our man 'Piph has always been tireless — putting out mixtapes and singles, emceeing all kinds of shows and parties and performing live regularly. He's been on a roll in recent months, though, releasing his long-awaited long-player "Such is Life," as well as some excellent videos for "Untouchable," and "Something to Tell Ya." He's been taking his show on the road lately too, playing dates around the region, including Fayetteville, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Jackson and Hattiesburg, Miss., Memphis and Texarkana. This show represents a reunion of sorts, as Epiphany will be performing again with the band Tomorrow Maybe, which you probably saw providing that rock-solid live backing on the video for "Untouchable Unplugged." Also performing with Tomorrow Maybe will be Bijoux and Dee Dee Jones. Openers include JWhite, Bully Gang and Duke Stigall, with host Sean Fresh. RB
