To-Do List, Aug. 27 




9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.


 If you've managed to find a bootleg copy of the great Stones' documentary “Cocksucker Blues,” you probably remember Bobby Keys. Captured on a Denver stop during the band's debauched 1972 North American tour, he and Keith Richards hurl a TV out of a hotel window 10 flights up. For some 40 years, the Texas-born saxophonist has been stirring up trouble with Keif and co., which makes him probably the most tenured auxiliary member of the Rolling Stones. That's him honking, wildly, on “Brown Sugar” and dozens more of your favorite Stones' songs. It's been a long, wild ride. Born in Slaton, near Lubbock, in 1943 (on the same day as Keith Richards), Keys came up blowing his horn, going out on the road with the Crickets when he was just 15 and later working with Buddy Holly and Bobby Vee. In the late '60s, he did session work in Muscle Shoals. Following his appearance, in 1969, on “Let It Bleed,” he became much in demand, playing on albums with Eric Clapton to B.B. King. These days, when the Stones aren't touring, Keys still kicks around Lubbock, stirring up trouble. LM.






10 p.m., White Water. $5.


This is the way it goes. Your favorite local contenders for national indie stardom convene in Little Rock for a week or two (guitarist/vocalist Collins Kilgore lives in New York), practice, write songs and play no more than two shows. Then, they jet away (or van away) to airport terminals or music festivals or a string of gigs somewhere far flung. This time, after Friday's show, they're headed out on a mini-tour — Chicago to New York to Raleigh/Durham to Knoxville. The following weekend, they're in Memphis at Ardent Studios cutting a quick session with Grammy-winning producer/engineer John Hampton, who's worked with everyone from the Replacements to the White Stripes. All that imminent activity should mean that the band's well oiled and ready to unveil some new material on Friday. In fact, they've already debuted two sharp new ones on americanprinces.com for your streaming pleasure. Prolific local singer/songwriter Adam Faucett shares the bill along with Springfield, Mo., Rockers Sweetwater Abilene. LM.




10 p.m., Juanita's. $10.


Gotta dig the name, since adding anything electric to anything acid is guaranteed to result in theater, like the last time I saw the Enigma. We discussed a variety of topics, such as the last time he spoke with Mom and how he engulfs himself in a torrential firestorm of sparks emitting from his trusty axe grinder. Born Paul Lawrence, the entirely tattooed performer, actor and musician has undergone extensive body modification, including horn implants, ear reshaping, multiple body piercings and a full-body jigsaw-puzzle tattoo. With his blindfolded partner Serana Rose, who'll drive a chainsaw through an apple clutched between his jaws, one of this century's most admired and truest-to-form sideshow masters will be accompanied by live instrumentation as he performs stunts like eating a lightbulb sandwich. Setting the mood with its own brand of stage show decadence are the Flameing Daeth Fearies, a costumed cast of gremlins certain to boost audience IQ levels with original numbers such as “Vagina is Amazing,” “Luke is Gay” and “French Bitch.” PP.
