Thursday To-Do: Libras do Bob Dylan

THE LIBRAS
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

Name me another cover band with at least four dudes who've toured nationally. Or one with a drummer who drives four hours for gigs. How 'bout one that's a side gig for its members' myriad, awesome local projects — like the Boondogs, Big Silver, the Easys, Jim Mize and the Germans, Western Meds. No sense in trying. There's none apart from the Libras, Little Rock's favorite theme-night-obsessed cover band. Last we saw the dudes, they were doing an unpracticed, raw night of dead Beatles covers. Folks got down. The bar at White Water probably pulled in more than any other night of the week, and we weren't at all mad at the band. But where precision helps in Beatle pop, the songs of Bob Dylan lend themselves to the kind of shambolic jam the Libras do best. Look for lead vocals from Jason Weinheimer (Boondogs), Greg Spradlin and Isaac Alexander (Big Silver, Easys). The other guys — Chris Michaels, Dylan Turner and Charles Wyrick — could probably be plied into singing with booze. Or you could probably buy your own way onto the mic with booze. It's a drunkards' marketplace. Bonus points: Dave Easely, the serene and talented pedal steel whiz from New Orleans, opens and sits in with the Libras.
