RUNAWAY PLANET
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.


Since 2001, Runaway Planet has been the standard bearer for bluegrass in Little Rock. A four-piece string band that features stand-up bass, mandolin, guitar and banjo, the Planet storms into White Water on Friday to celebrate the release of its sophomore album, “Tarnation.” Like the group's debut, their latest follows well-trodden territory, mixing standards and originals that deal in old-timey tropes we can all appreciate — wayfaring strangers, floods, women with the devil in them. Everyone in the band — that'd be Greg Alexander, Steve Brauer, Ben Ellis and Michael Proveaux — enjoys songwriting credit and all save Ellis contribute to impressive three-part harmonies. Depending on your energy, expect a night of toe-tapping, two-stepping or foot-stomping.
