As usual, jazz whiz Ted Ludwig leads his trio with shows at the Capital Bar, 5 p.m., free, and the Afterthought, 8:30 p.m. At Vino's, local hard rockers San Antokyo share a bill with Arkadelphia's Frown Pow'r, who play a jubilant brand of lo-fi garage pop, 9 p.m., $6. Northwest Arkansas's blues brothers, the Eoff Brothers Band, mix covers with originals at Juanita's, 9 p.m., $5. The show is open to ages 18 and older.

Local musicians Happenstance, the Boomers, Kat Hood and Chuck Gilbert perform at the Advent Lutheran Church, 7 p.m., $4-$12, to benefit the Bethlehem House, a homeless transitional center.
