Some Birds of Avalon.

Chris Denny, famous locally and beyond for his high warble, plays Juanita's, with killer psych-pop-rock band Birds of Avalon (familiar to those who caught Ted Leo's last Juanita's show), catchy singer/songwriter Jeremy Fisher, who has a stop-motion music video where a cigarette comes to life, and Brooke Wagner, 8:30 p.m., $8.

At White Water its bands with names that sound like they were pilfered from childrens' stories: Bryan Scary and the Shredding Tears do baroque power-pop a la Jellyfish or A.C. Newman, and Johnny Nobody does slightly heavier indie rock, 9 p.m., $5.

New Monsoon, from the Bay Area, bring together loads of instruments and disparate genres, for one big jam at Revolution, 8 p.m., $10.

Emo-ish pop-punk band Wheatus is at Vino's before heading to SXSW and returning to LR for the Inksplosion. Plus, NYC's Dead Man Dreaming, a metal-punk band. With Arkansas's At Our Finest.

  • The Family Council vs. Issue 1

    Here's a storyline to watch: The Family Council, the conservative Christian group that's long fought against same-sex marriage and abortion rights, has come out heavy against Issue 1, the so-called "tort reform" ballot proposal that would limit damage awards in lawsuits. The messaging battle over Issue 1 has long been seen as one that pitted the deep pockets of the state Chamber of Commerce and big business in the state against the deep pockets of trial lawyers. Could the Family Council's truck with evangelicals tip the scales?
