THURSDAY 3/5

Afterthought unveils its new “Jazz@Afterthought” series with the local duo Thurman and Nesbitt, who play guitar jazz in the tradition of Django Reinhardt, 8 p.m., $5. The weekly series will feature local and regional groups, and at least once a month, the Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio, which has long held the Thursday spot. At Cajun's Wharf, the Gettys, arguably Little Rock's favorite cover band, play songs you know, 9 p.m., $5. Local roots rockers Jeff Coleman and the Feeders play On the Rocks, where there's cheap beer and a DJ after the live music ends, 9 p.m., $5. White Water hosts Chicago native Barry Brenner as he offers country folk blues, 9 p.m., $5. They won't be playing the Afterthought tonight, but the Ted Ludwig Trio continues on at the Capital Bar, 5 p.m., free. At Juanita's, live band karaoke with Third Degree continues, 9 p.m., $5. In preparation for the SEC Women's Tournament, the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame, inside Alltel, hosts SEC FanFare, with interactive games and meet-and-greets with SEC legends, 10:30 a.m., free.

 

FRIDAY 3/6

In case we haven't caught your attention elsewhere, it's the end of the road: Friday is the FINAL ROUND of the ARKANSAS TIMES MUSICIANS SHOWCASE. Unlike previous weeks, it's at Revolution and it starts at 8 p.m. and it's open to all ages. The line-up features Jonathan Wilkins, the Chicklettes, the See, Nik and Sam and Velvet Kente, $5. Local DJs Uniq, g-force and Fatality and local rappers 4X4 Crew come together at Downtown Music for “Nocturnal,” 9 p.m., $5. At Afterthought, blue-eyed crooner Big John Miller leads his band in familiar soul covers, 9 p.m., $7. Local singer/songwriter Chris Henry is at the Flying Saucer, 9 p.m., $3. At Sticky Fingerz, Fayetteville's Boom Kinetic, formerly known as Molten Lava, plays '80s covers, 10 p.m., $7. And local cover band Sharpe Dunaway and the Blue Meanies comes to Vino's, 8 p.m., $2.

 

SATURDAY 3/7

At Revolution, increasingly popular country rockers Randy Rogers Band, from Texas, play to what's sure to be a packed crowd, 9 p.m., $15. Piano and vocal combo Carl Mouton and Ramona Smith return to the Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7. Late night, at Discovery, Justin Sane and DJ Ramone hold it down in the disco, while Balance mans the lobby, midnight, $10.
