In Brief, Dec. 9-11 

THURSDAY 12/9

Aloud brings high-fructose indie pop with co-ed harmonies (and a bassist from El Dorado) to Sticky Fingerz with local support from garage phenoms Brother Andy and His Big Damn Mouth and harmonic Southern rockers Mandy McBryde and the Holy Ghosts, 9 p.m., $5. Chris Henry and his guitar take the mic at Grumpy's Too, 8:30 p.m., free. Down on the riverside at Cajun's Wharf, Rob and Tyndall handle the happy hour crew, 5:30 p.m., while Cody Belew and the Mercers bring the blue-eyed soul, 9 p.m., $5 after 8:30 p.m. It's BB guns and Bumpus dogs at The Rep when "A Christmas Story" returns to the stage, 7 p.m., $20-$40. And if you find yourself in Fayetteville, the night's full of big-time country names with Kathy Mattea at the Walton Arts Center, 7 p.m., $28-$42, and Robert Earl Keen at George's Majestic Lounge, 9 p.m., $25.

  

FRIDAY 12/10

Rodney Block and the Real Music Lovers bring "An Evening of Jazz" to the Mallard Bar in the Peabody Hotel, 9 p.m., $10-$15. Fresh off of wrapping up an upcoming release, The See returns to stage alongside the Canadian indie-influenced sounds of Catskill Kids and the oddball folk harmonies from Reptar at White Water Tavern, 10 p.m. Sticky Fingerz regulars Lucious Spiller Band party at the River Market chicken shack, 9 p.m., $5. Reno's Argenta Cafe brings The Shotgun Billies, who are completely unGoogleable but deserve a plug by awesome name alone, 9 p.m. Eggheads and nog-noggins collide when the Historic Arkansas Museum hosts "The Sixth Ever Nog Off," an annual holiday event that pits egg nog recipes against each other in a calorie-packed celebration of all things noggy, 5 p.m., free.

 

SATURDAY 12/11

The Freds, the first band ever to play the Juanita's stage, have reformed after 18 years to return to the same venue, promising a night of classic and modern rock covers, 9:30 p.m., $7. Downtown Music Hall hosts a night of music to benefit Brandon Clendenin, drummer for Seige the City, who's undergoing chemotherapy, 4 p.m., $10. Country/bluegrass favorites Pope County Bootleggers pick and fiddle at Midtown Billiards, 12:30 a.m., $8 non-members. And basketball fans, head to UALR; the men's Trojans face off against the Ole Miss Rebels at the Jack Stephens Center, 2 p.m.
