FASTBALL
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

The Austin, Texas, trio Fastball makes its return to Little Rock after a four-year absence. Formed in 1994, the band originally called itself Megneto USA, but became Fastball after signing with Hollywood Records in 1995. Still beneath the radar after extensive touring, Fastball began throwing strikes following the release of its second album, “All the Pain Money Can Buy,” which sold 1 million copies with the U.S. radio hit, “The Way.” After gigs the world over, Fastball released its third album on Hollywood before stepping up to the plate to record “Keep Your Wig On” on Rykodisc (Morphine, Frank Zappa). With catchy hooks and a full-body sound, the trio is set to release its fifth album this fall, currently being mixed by Bob Clearmountain, known for his work with Springsteen and the Stones. The guys have also done quite a bit of side work, writing and recording with other artists such as Bruce Robison, Al Anderson and Bowling for Soup.
