In Brief, June 10 

THURSDAY 6/10

Little Rock's dukes of deconstruction, The Rockin' Guys, are busy not rockin', so we have Frontier Dan, Red Neckerson, Lightnin' Lou and Wylie Peyote of The Frontier Circus to fill their space, subverting 45 RPM classics thrillingly. They play White Water Tavern with local popcrafts Big Silver, 10 p.m., $5. Electric country act from Nashville, The Dirt Drifters, ramble back into town after their last visit, a sell-out show with Stoney LaRue; they take to Sticky Fingerz, 9:30 p.m., $5. After an omnipresent run on the radio around the turn of the millennium, Train is back with a new hit single in "Hey, Soul Sister" and a show in Hot Springs. The band plays Magic Springs' Timberwood Amphitheatre, 8 p.m., $29.99-$44.99.

FRIDAY, 6/11

After a great show at Vino's in March, one of the best bands from New Jersey, Screaming Females, take to the ACAC alongside enduring locals The Thing That Always Explodes, Fayetteville-based harmonic power popsters The Rox and anti-folk Oklahoman Dave Dean's Musical Forklift, 9 p.m., $7. Midtown Billiards books a welcome duo of twisted local acts for its weekly, late-night show: local stalwarts Hector Faceplant and the "Apocalypse Now"-quoting Outstanding Red Team, 12:30 a.m., $5 non-members. After a night of storms and tornados in March flooded Juanita's and canceled its much anticipated show, local soul-rock gods Velvet Kente and self-proclaimed dictionary rapper 607 switch venues to play what's sure to be a packed house at White Water Tavern, 10 p.m. The Peabody Rivertop Party soldiers on for another Friday night shindig, this time with music by hugely popular road warrior party band, The Venus Mission, 8 p.m., $5.

SATURDAY, 6/12

Local promoter/producer Ras Levi celebrates his birthday at Revolution with a night of hip-hop and reggae from Butterfly, Dexter Peters, Nicky Parrish, DJs K-One and Boone and more, 8 p.m. At Downtown Music Hall, local metal heroes Rwake play a rare show alongside Memphis hard blues-rockers The Dirty Streets, 8 p.m., $7. Dreamland Ballroom's drive-in movie series continues with canonized zombie classic "Night of the Living Dead," 8 p.m., $5 per person or $20 per carload. At Discovery, visiting DJ Steven Oliveri works the crowd in the disco while the man who needs no introduction, g-force, takes it to the lobby, 9 p.m., $10.
