In brief, Jan. 8 

THURSDAY 1/8

Two Arkansans who've long flirted with national fame share the stage at White Water. Chase Pagan, who sings in an earnest falsetto, continues to tour, tirelessly, behind his album “Oh, Musica!” Chris Denny, who sings in a preternatural warble that sounds an awful lot like a young, liquored Roy Orbison, has returned to Central Arkansas after months on the road to put together songs for a new album, 9 p.m., $5. Established in 1909, the Yale Whiffenpoofs are America's oldest collegiate a capella group (Cole Porter was a 'poof); Thursday they team with the Parkview High School Madrigal vocal group at the Clinton Library, 8 p.m., $10-$20. At Cajun's, local rockers Six Strings Down headline, 9 p.m., $5. The Daniel Lanois-approved Austin-based duo BlissBliss comes to Studio Joe, 8 p.m., $10. As usual the Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio bounces from the Capital Bar, 5 p.m., free, to the Afterthought, 8:30 p.m., $5.

 

FRIDAY 1/9

All the tried and true Arkie pols will be glad-handing at the Gillet Coon Supper (Gillet High School Gym, 507 Champion), 7:30 p.m., $20. Rowdy rock 'n' rollers (including the Times' own Paul Peterson on drums) Josh the Devil and Friends hold it down for the late night set at Midtown, 12:30 a.m., $5. Local acoustic singer/songwriter Paul Sammons shares the bill with Johnny Rocket and Solstice at Juanita's, 10 p.m., $7 (open to ages 18 and older). Long-tenured cover band Unpainted Arizona headlines at Cajun's, 9 p.m., $5. Local blues rockers the Pope County Bootleggers play Cornerstone Pub for the first time, 9 p.m., $5. Multi-instrumentalist Tonya Leeks brings her band to the Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7.

 

SATURDAY 1/10

Standout Bay Area hip-hop DJ Lady Fingaz headlines Killswitch Revolution at 8 p.m., $5, at Revolution, of course. Memphis' rockabilly throwbacks the Dempseys return to Sticky Fingerz, 8:30 p.m., $7. Blue-eyed soul man Big John Miller comes to the Afterthought with his band, 9 p.m., $7. At Discovery, Balance and Jiminy Kick It man the ones and twos in the clubs, while g-force keeps it moving in the lobby, midnight, $10. Local country-rockers Hwy 5 headline at Juanita's with Nik and Sam, 9 p.m., $7. Cornerstone regulars St. Leroy & the Martyrs play good time rock, 9 p.m., $5.

    On Thanksgiving night, Bret Bielema could settle into his bed knowing that after a rather miserable 2013 inauguration, he had slipped comfortably into his job and the results were bearing some small but edible fruits for this ravenous fan base. He was only 25-24, but 18-10 with two bowl wins over his last 28 contests, a smattering of takedowns of ranked teams, and a stabilized roster that showed off the staff's endeavors to enlist and develop a caliber of player that would lead to better days ahead in a rugged conference.
