AMERICAN PRINCES/ J. RODDY WALSTON AND THE BUSINESS
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

The American Princes' new record, “Other People,” doesn't come out until April 14, but it's been done for months, and you've got to think the fellas are ready to start playing it live. Recorded with Chuck Brody, who's worked with the likes of Peter, Bjorn and John and the Wu-Tang Clan, the album has a sparkly '80s sheen to it, full of buoyant guitar work and dozens of sing-a-long hooks. The lyrics are as sharp as ever. Collins Kilgore and David Slade continue to split vocal duties, and relatively new guitarist Will Boyd offers up a way-impressive vocal contribution on one track. It's easily the band's best release. For a home crowd at White Water, expect plenty of back-catalog material, too. Most everyone will know the words. If the most beloved local band trying to make it big isn't enough of a draw, how about perhaps the most beloved touring band to play Little Rock regularly? Based in Baltimore, J. Roddy Walston and the Business return to Little Rock for the fifth or sixth time in a year. They've amassed a passionate local following thanks to their raucous piano-driven rawk.
