Tuesday To-Do: J. Roddy Walston and the Biz

9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

On the strength of two raucous shows in Little Rock, J. Roddy Walston and the Business have amassed a feverish local buzz. Based in Baltimore, the four-piece plays unhinged, no-frills, piano-driven rawk. One gets the sense that the dudes come from indie-rock backgrounds, and initially dipped an ironic toe in what they call “good-time rock 'n' roll,” and found it so damn fun, they've gone all in. Everyone's bushy, with handlebar mustaches and beards, and most all the Business have long, curly manes, geared for whipping around during long guitar workouts. For all the Thin Lizzy, JRWATB rock it Little Richard style, too, courtesy, largely, of front man J. Roddy, whose hands and ass seem to always be in the air. When the fellas kick it into gear, everyone dances. Filling out the healthy bill: Glossary, an alt-country-tinged indie rock act from Murfreesboro who make plaintiveness sound good. Plus, everyone's favorite local-boys-done-good, the American Princes, who have a new album in the can that they're sure to be eager to share. They'll be playing sans Collins Kilgore, but David Slade has got plenty of winning material to fill a set.
