AMERICAN PRINCES
10 p.m., Revolution. $8.

If you're feeling aimless on Saturday or have a broad but ill-defined interest in local music, or, certainly, if your opinion of the American Princes falls anywhere between love and mild curiosity, you should go step out to help the Princes celebrate the release of their latest and greatest album, “Other People.” Because, possibly, one of two things will follow the release. Either (fingers crossed), the band will, deservedly, blow up, or this'll be its swan song. I'm only speculating on the latter, but if “Other People” falls on deaf ears nationally, sustaining a band with a key member in New York and the rest of the band in Little Rock might grow difficult. In support of the former, the album takes the band's trademark ability to write whip-smart lyrics and searing, chant-along hooks and applies it to a survey of rock 'n' roll traditions from the last 20 years. It's as catchy as it is varied. It's easy to imagine it finding a broad audience, but in today's increasingly fractured music biz and blog-dominated hype machine, who can tell? As they gear up for a national tour, give the Princes a push, Little Rock. Local folk group Silverton opens.

EARLIER: The Princes are playing an instore out at the West Little Rock Barnes and Noble at 2 p.m.
