CANDLEBOX
8 p.m., Revolution. $20 adv., $25 d.o.s.

Candlebox originally was named Uncle Duke, perhaps a nod to Gary Trudeau's Doonesbury character of the same name, who was blatantly cloned from Hunter S. Thompson. The Seattle band's 1993 debut album sold an impressive 4 million copies, with plenty of assistance from radio and MTV's rotation overkill. After albums in 1995 and 1998, Candlebox remained below mainstream's radar for an entire decade. Until now. Last month's long-awaited release of “Into the Sun” spawned a single, “Stand,” that's picking up airplay on mainstream rock radio stations. Now the band returns to the public sphere with three of its four original members. The Little Rock show falls only one week into a tour that runs through Oct. 4. Known for hard-hitting live performances, Candlebox has toured with the diverse likes of the Flaming Lips, Rush, Henry Rollins, Living Color and Metallica. Vocalist Kevin Martin delivers his signature plaintive wails with his hard-rocking cohorts Monday at Revolution for an all-ages show. Supporting acts the King's Royal and Smalltown Sleeper complete the bill. —Paul Peterson.
