In Brief, Oct. 8 


Searcy native Sean Williams fronts the Nobility, one of Nashville's finest pop acts. He and Little Rock pop kingpin Isaac Alexander have collaborated since early in college. They play a rare acoustic set early at the House, 8 p.m., free. Free Micah specializes in angst-y indie-pop, full of boy-girl harmonies and folk flourish. The local rockers share a bill at Sticky Fingerz with Austin indie act the Rocketboys and big “Bottle Rocket” fans Dignan, 9:30 p.m., $5. At the Afterthought's regular jazz night, the two Bills, Thurman and Nesbitt, play hot club and gypsy jazz, 8 p.m., $5. Tragikly White plays songs you know and, more often than not, can dance to, at Cajun's, 9 p.m., $5.



Reigning Musicians Showcase winner Velvet Kente's concert at White Water doubles as a birthday party for front man joshua; Minneapolis' Caroline Smith and the Goodnight Sleeps open with chirpy indie-pop, 10 p.m., $6. No cover band that plays Little Rock commands a more devoted following than '80s-focused Venus Mission, who play at Revolution, 9 p.m., $6. In “The Time Is Now,” the Arkansas Chamber Singers take on selections from Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn and Purcell, St. Mark's Episcopal, 7:30 p.m., $10-$15 (the singers reprise their performance on Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Clinton Library). The 4X4 Crew, Mike Streezy and North Rock are among those scheduled to perform at Booze and Barz, an underground hip-hop party at Downtown Music, 9 p.m., $5. Young, popular Christian rock bands Skillet, Hawk Nelson, Decyfer Down and the Letter Black play the last installment of Music in the Park at the Riverfest Amphitheatre, 7 p.m., $10-$45. From Memphis, the Teenage Eyes play awesomely wobbly power-pop at Vino's, 8:30 p.m.



Self-made underground superstar Corey Smith returns to Revolution, which he always sells out, 9 p.m., $15 adv., $20 d.o.s. It's a night of riff-heavy local rock at Juanita's with Go Fast and San Antokyo sharing a bill, 9:30 p.m., $5. Or, at White Water, it's a night of cheeky garage-pop with the Weisenheimers and throwback hard rock with Conway's the Muddlestuds, 9 p.m., $5. Red Dirt country standout Stoney LaRue shares the bill with Nashville's the Dirt Drifters at Sticky Fingerz, 9 p.m., $8 adv., $10 d.o.s.
