SAN ANTOKYO
9:30 p.m., White Water Tavern. $8.

Thick Syrup, the local label that's given the scene a near essential collection of local rock, an album by everyone's favorite Michael McDonald-style keyboard crooner Nathan Brown and Smoke Up Johnny's barroom opus, isn't super prolific — those releases represent its entire output in about three years — but who needs quantity, when TS is releasing such quality? Continuing down that path: The latest from San Antokyo, the raw cowpunk-ish trio fronted by the brothers Kerby, Josh and Kevin, with Bryce from the Contingencies on bass, and a dude who's been around for a while who everyone calls Slaughterhouse or sometimes just Slaughter, who plays drums. From the demo tracks San Antokyo has on its MySpace page, expect chunky riffs and elemental lyrics about blood, cigarettes and robots. Kyoto Boom, who made a strong showing in the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase, opens with arena-sized post-punk, which always gets the White Water crowd bouncing.
