GRINGO STAR
8 p.m., On the Rocks. $5.

Atlanta's Gringo Star, who used to go by A Fir-Ju Well, has long made it a point to route its tours through Little Rock. But in promoting its debut full-length, “All Y'all,” the garage band is covering us up in shows. If Southernized and slightly psychedelic Kinks-style Brit Pop is your thing, you don't have an excuse for missing Gringo Star. The band will play three shows: Thursday, with local, stylistic cousins Big Boots, at On the Rocks; Friday, also with Big Boots, at Sticky Fingerz (9 p.m., $5) and again on Friday at Midtown (12:30 a.m., $5). Produced by Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley), the new album isn't officially out until Nov. 4, when the fellas will be halfway across the At-lantic en route to a month-long UK tour, but they're good enough to have it on sale early for these shows. It's almost worth picking up just for the title track, an infectious anthem of cynicism, filled with handclaps, multi-part harmonies and guitar hooks you can sink your teeth into.
