9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

Texas singer/songwriter Hayes Carll has a rabid local following. The Houston native went to college at Hendrix and his fellow alumni always come out full-force, and moreover, Carll specializes in that literate niche of alt-country carved out by folks like Townes Van Zandt and Steve Earle that people around here can’t seem to get enough of. That Carll named his sophomore album “Little Rock” hasn’t much hurt his local standing either. The title track on that CD mirrors Ferlin Huskey’s “Little Rock Callin’ ” in sentiment: Carll has traveled far and wide, always longing for home — “All these years of searching, finally found my spot/one way or another, Lord, I’m going to make it down to Little Rock.” Now that he’s back again, fans can expect more than a few new songs from the follow-up to “Little Rock” that Carll is currently recording for Lost Highway.
