Attractive AND Popular

ATTRACTIVE AND POPULAR
8 p.m., Low Key Arts Building, Hot Springs. $5.

If it's been a minute since you trekked to Spa City, here's a good excuse. Low Key Arts Building, the city's indie music and art hub, hosts Attractive and Popular for the venue's last show of the spring/summer. DIY devotees know all about Attractive and Popular. Formed in Lafayette, La., the four-piece moved to Hot Springs several years back and took over the Exchange, which they operate as an all-ages club when they're not touring (so, somewhat infrequently). The dance punks have built their reputation on hard touring and ferocious performances that usually find them sweating a lot in black and gold outfits. Their last full-length came out on GSL, a label founded by Mars Volta. On Friday, they're celebrating the release of a split CD, “Live from Hell/Jungle Fever,” on Little Mafia Records with El Paso Hot Button, a one-man band from Norman, Okla., that dexterously kicks out full, raucous garage-rock. Impressive local noise-punks Ginsu Wives open.
