JUMP BACK JAKE
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

“Jump Back” Jake Rabinbach moved from Brooklyn to Memphis four years ago. He's out to appropriate the best of Bluff City's soul traditions. Or as he brags in his MySpace bio, he's “done to Memphis Soul what Nick Cave did to the gothic murder ballad, and what The Blues Explosion did for electric blues: Stolen what they loved and made it sound contemporary.” Even if his rhetoric might outstrip his talent, Rabinbach seems to be on the right path. He just wrapped up recording with producer Pete Matthews, who discovered Evanescence, at famed Ardent Studios in Memphis. The blue-eyed soul man comes to White Water as part of a regional tour in advance of that album's release. Indie-folk rocker Free Micah, from Texarkana, opens.
