Thursday: John Barrett's Bass Drum of Death, the Effects, Ted Ludwig, the Gettys and more

It's a carnival road show of band names at Juanita's: John Barrett's Bass Drum of Death do a kind of Bob Log style blues-punk thing, with a little more garage-y song structure and a little less mystery. Check the video above. They're from Oxford, Miss. So, too, is Dent May and His Fabulous Ukulele, a sharp, sunny pop-group, who aren't joking about the fabulous ukulele. Surprisingly, neither are on their way to SXSW. Plus: the Little Rock indie-pop duo Midwest Caravan, 9 p.m., $6.

En route to SXSW: The Effects fill in for Autovaughn at Sticky Fingerz. The Tulsa band often gets, deservedly, the rock-crit cliché description of 2007-2008: "straight, no frill rock 'n' roll*." In the opening slot, Pico vs. the Island come from Nashville and play smooth pop-rock, 9 p.m., $5.

At the Afterthought: New Orleans-raised and educated seven-string whiz Ted Ludwig and his trio, 8 p.m., $5.

On the Rocks hosts probably LR's most popular cover band, the Gettys, with DJ Sleepy Genius, 9 p.m., $5.

Perhaps the Gettys biggest rivals for most beloved local cover band, Tragikly White, is at Cajun's, 9 p.m, $5.


*I'm guilty at least once.
