JONATHAN WILKINS
9 p.m., White Water. $5.

Call it research. Singer/songwriter Jonathan Wilkins moonlights as the doorman at White Water. As hundreds of folks walk past him throughout the week, he’s got endless opportunities for inspiration. Then, there’s all that live music to overhear. Tonight, it’s the Hendrix grad’s turn. Claiming influence from acts like Townes Van Zandt, Bob Marley and Against Me!, Wilkins is likely to get percussive with his acoustic guitar on alt-country foot stompers like “Mrs. Huxtable,” a romantic ode to “The Cosby Show” mom. Also, he’ll devote at least part of the show to covers of songs by one of his primary local influences, Kevin Kerby. Mammoth Orange, a new group formed in the ashes of Tin Fire Radio, will open. The six-man band is still honing its atmospheric instrumental rock — its only had one prior show — but the young group definitely shows signs of promise.
