White Wives to Downtown Music 

THURSDAY 12/15

Downtown Music Hall has White Wives, featuring former members of Anti-Flag, Dandelion Snow and American Armada. But don't mistake this for a side-project or a synthesis of the members' other bands. The band has a markedly different sound, more widescreen indie rock than political punk. Opening acts are Josh the Devil & The Sinners and Adam Faucett, 7 p.m., $8. Arkadelphia native Nick Flora traffics in bouncy indie rock in the mode of Ben Folds and David Bazan. Flora plays at Revolution with North Little Rock jangle-meisters Knox Hamilton and heart-on-sleeve singer-songwriter Jarred McCauley of Little Rock, 8 p.m., $8 21 and older, $10 younger than 21. Long-running nostalgia act The Manhattan Transfer plays a holiday show at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville, 7 p.m., $28-$54. Standup comic Rahn Ramey has appeared on HBO's Comedy Relief and in the films "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" and "Escape from New York." Ramey is at The Loony Bin through Saturday night, various show times, $7-$10. Irish Consul General Paul Gleeson makes his first visit to Arkansas to meet with local dignitaries, Trapnall Hall, 6 p.m.

FRIDAY 12/16

How about some crunchy, moody modern rock, with the volume turned down ever so slightly? Stickyz hosts Hurt, for an acoustic performance, with opening act Jeffro, 18 and older, 8:30 p.m., $12 adv., $15 d.o.s. The Arkansas River Blues Society's Christmas Open Blues Jam includes a house band featuring Unseen Eye, Gil Franklin and Lucious Spiller, Cornerstone, 8 p.m., $5. Maxine's has an evening of singer-songwriters, with Brian Martin, Bonnie Montgomery, Glass Anchors and Isaac Alexander, 8 p.m., $5 adv., $7 door. Or is a jam-packed night of horror-punk more to your liking? Then check out the Rotten Records showcase Only Flesh, featuring The Kill Crazies, The Muddlestuds, Moment of Fierce Determination, Let Them Be Buried, Rehab Superstar, Livid and Project 7, Downtown Music Hall, 5 p.m.

SATURDAY 12/17

Chris Milam brings some laid-back songwriting to Browning's Mexican Grill, 8 p.m. Juanita's hosts Fayetteville pop-punk stalwart Dreamfast, whose newest EP, "My Wounds, My Weapons" is packed with ultra-catchy, booze-fueled tunes, 9 p.m., $6. Blisterin' Arkansas bluesman Michael Burks plays an 18-and-older show at Stickyz, 8:30 p.m., $10. Over at Revolution, Wrangler Space pays tribute to Widespread Panic, 18-and-older, 9:30 p.m., $8 adv., $10 d.o.s. Cornerstone hosts "A Gumbo Christmas," with Butterfly & Rebirth of Irie Soul, Fiyah Teddy, Brukshot Burnz and more, 9 p.m., $10.
