THE BRAVERY
9 p.m., Juanita's. $15 adv., $18 d.o.s.

It's not too often Little Rock lands a buzz band, or at least not a buzz band that's been anointed by the mainstream press — not yet popular enough to land magazine covers, but familiar to Rolling Stone readers. So young rockers, take note: The Bravery, not too long ago picked as “New York's Official Next Big Thing” by the Village Voice and, today, with a current top-10 single in Billboard's “Modern Rock” chart, comes to town in support of its latest, “The Sun and the Moon Complete,” on which the band continues its move away from the new-wave revival that lifted it to prominence to a more mainstream rock sound. Still, don't be surprised if you catch a whiff of the Cure. Buzzworthy, too: Modern rockers Fiction Plane, featuring Joe Sumner (AKA Sting's son) on bass and vocals and Bear Colony, a Little Rock based-indie group getting national attention, open the show.
