8 p.m., Revolution. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

If the Volcanic Ash Monster deems it worthy and lets these Scotsmen out of his snares, Little Rock will get what's expected to be one of the best shows of the season from Frightened Rabbit. The five-piece has released three unanimously acclaimed albums full of urgent and sweaty but unabashedly emotional guitar rock; theirs is a tense, melodic, masculine take on Morrissey's nervous, disillusioned and blatant sexual frustration that may just make you long for a little of the ol' gut twisting heartache yourself. Sure, the overly sincere torch song posturing might make you grimace now and then and lead singer Scott Hutchison's voice tends to stray dangerously close to Counting Crows territory, but the band's tracks are far from your concave-chested little brother's whine-alongs. These guys flex muscle with their punching, dynamic sound, readymade to render your arms full of the maximum amount of goosebumps in the least amount of time. Tender voiced Australians The Middle East and Little Rock's The See (check out their Q&A in this issue) provide opening support.
