In Brief, April 29-May 1 

Big-beat, dubstep — how 'bout we just start chunking subgenres at the bass and see what happens? Bassnectar twiddles his knobs for an adoring public at Revolution, 9 p.m., $17 adv., $22 d.o.s. Fun fact: Who opened up for Metallica on its 1998 “Garage Inc.” tour? Battery: Masters of Metallica, the cover band. That's hilarious. See the doppelgangers at Sticky Fingerz, 9 p.m., $10. Times favorite Bonnie Montgomery fronts Montgomery Trucking and plays alongside 3 Penny Acre for a ROOT Cafe fundraiser at the Arkansas Flag & Banner building, 9:15 p.m. Kat & Chuck of Katmandu play as a duo at Afterthought, 8 p.m., $5.

Sticky Fingerz brings a second night of tribute bands with the band that could have been called “Ants Marching” or “Tripping Billies,” but that would have been way too obvious, right? The Dave Matthews Tribute Band plays, 10 p.m., $6 early admission. April's Cool Shoes dance party at Downtown Music brings out DJs Kichen, Johan, Risky Biz and B. Pleiss, 10 p.m., $5 or $8 if you're under 21. Austin's Literature returns after a fantastic show at White Water; the band shares the bill with local garage-pop outfit Magic Hassle at Union, 10 p.m., donations. One of the most reliably mind-blowing bands anywhere plays with one of the best rappers, period, at Juanita's: Velvet Kente hits the stage with 607 at 10 p.m., $5. UALR Opera Theatre updates Mozart's “The Magic Flute” with a contemporary English translation and new setting in the NYC subway; Wildwood Park for the Arts hosts, 7 p.m., $15, $5 students. Speaking of universities, UCA takes out Reynolds Performance Hall to showcase the school's cinematic talents with a night of shorts, docs and music videos in the sixth annual UCA Film Festival, 5:30 p.m., free.

If you feel like getting off the beaten track, the legendary Leon Russell plays the Omaha Center in Cherokee Village, 7 p.m., $20 adv., $25 d.o.s. Bluegrass outfit Pope County Bootleggers will be drinking at Town Pump, music to follow, 10 p.m., $5. Speaking of drinking, if you plan on getting in it to win it, you could do worse than bellying up at Counterpoint for a night of music by party band The Gettys, 10 p.m.
