THE DREAMING/ AVI GHOSH
9 p.m., Juanita's. $7.

Pull out the eyeliner and black shoes/shirt/pants/lipstick/fingerless gloves. It's time to get angst-y. First up, from Hollywood, it's the Dreaming, a new group led by Christopher Hall, the former lead singer of Stabbing Westward. The band may look like the Lost Boys, but even with lyrics like, “you're nothing, you're no one, you're dead to me,” the band favors less of the industrial punch of Stabbing Westward and more straightforward melodic, sing-along alt-rock. (Everyone, even the eye-shaded, likes to sing along.) In the opening slot, Avi Ghosh makes his local debut. The 23-year-old moved to Little Rock last year to work for Acxiom, all the while continuing to write, record, perform and produce new material in his bedroom. You wouldn't guess that “Severing the Tie,” Ghosh's new album, was recorded at home. There's a crispness, a big sound and a strong sense of melody in his music that stands out in the mix of industrial, aggro alt-rock. This marks Ghosh's first album released under his own name — he previously recorded and released under dEFY and claims to have sold upwards of 4,000 CDs independently. He seems to be popular in Germany. It might be time for hometown crowds to catch up. All ages welcome.
