THE AMERICAN PRINCES / THE GOOD FEAR
10 p.m., Juanita’s. $7.

It’s been four months (a third of a year!) since Little Rock’s favorite sons played a show here. That’s the longest we’ve ever been American Princes-less, and you can be sure that won’t be lost on the band or its ever-widening local fan base. A new album — the group’s fifth — should be mixed and mastered by the time the APs get to town, though because they’ve signed on with a big PR firm, a large advance promotional push means it won’t go on sale until mid-February next year. The fellas are excited about the new record and sure to be antsy for folks to hear it, so expect quite a bit of live preview. Also worth noting: After years touring as a four-piece, the Princes last year added a third guitarist, Will Boyd (late of Evanescence). In the handful of times they’ve played here since then, he’s added a noticeable lift to an already dynamic act. The Good Fear, based largely in Fayetteville, rarely play Little Rock. They specialize in epic Southern pop-rock, full of dramatic arrangements and swirling guitar work. Among the six-piece, Jason “T-shirts” Rich’s swelling pedal steel is a particular highlight. Look for new material from the Good Fear, too. J. Roddy Walston and the Business also fit into the bill, which’ll play an encore show at George’s Majestic in Fayetteville on Saturday. Walston and the Business put on a raucous show at Pizza D several months back that folks still rave about
