8:30 p.m., On the Rocks. $5.

It's a surefire barroom trick: Book a popular bill of bands that have never played your venue and offer ridiculous drink specials. The masses will flock. On Thursday, the Moving Front and Kyoto Boom, two local post-punk acts who sound polished enough to be national, headline at On the Rocks, the River Market bar on the ground floor of the Block 2 lofts. The Moving Front, who seemed to own Little Rock stages during the early part of last year, have been playing out less lately, while they work on a sophomore album. Bassist Brian Rodgers reports that they have 10 songs, minus vocals and mixing, in the can. It'll still be a while before they release the album, but look for them to test the new material on Thursday. Kyoto Boom, who came close to winning this year's Musicians Showcase, still hasn't recorded a debut album, though the band's looking to in the coming months. Expect both bands' fanbases, which overlap to a certain degree, to be out in full, particularly since drink specials include 25-cent Bud Light, $3 pitchers, $3 Sex on the Beach and $10 Bud Light towers, which must be only a few liters away from a pony keg.
