At On the Rocks, Little Rock's most sterling post-punk bands, Kyoto Boom and the Moving Front, perform what's sure to be a gig packed with equal parts die-hard followers and casual fans eager to take advantage of staggeringly cheap drink specials, 8 p.m., $5. Popular cover (and sometimes original) act the Gettys headline at Cajun's, 9 p.m., $5. “The Heat Rock” at Cornerstone features a good deal of unknown rappers, but also local standouts like Grim Muzik, Big Drew and Clint G, 8 p.m. Local talents Shannon Wiggins and Lawrence Hamilton perform at the Quapaw Quarter United Methodist Church in “Hot Mama Wiggins Variety Hour and Musicfest,” a fund-raiser for the church's music program, 7 p.m., $15.

It continues, same time, place and price, on Saturday. Junior Kimbrough's son David Kimbrough Jr. plays an updated (somewhat R&B) version of his father's hypnotic North Mississippi blues at White Water, with the highly impressive Thomas Houston Jones and Blues Boy Jag, 9 p.m., $5.
