BEN NICHOLS/CHUCK RAGAN/TIM BARRY/ TOM GABEL
9 p.m., Juanita's. $15.

Folk-punks have had this date circled for months. In what's dubbed the “Revival Tour” — a nod to the folk era, when solo artists often collaborated onstage — four of the genre's biggest names, Ben Nichols (Lucero), Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Tim Barry (Avail) and Tom Gabel (Against Me), come to town to play solo sets and provide backing support for each other. Nichols, who's no stranger to solo gigs in Little Rock, has said the idea of the tour grew from the pleasure of  “stripping everything down to its basic form” and likened it to “sitting around a campfire every night playing music with some friends.” He's sure to be the big draw at Juanita's, but nationally, particularly in the punk scene, he might be the least well known, and he's definitely the odd man out among the coterie of protest-minded punk and hardcore. But where material might separate the quartet, everyone sings like he's spent a lifetime hollering and drinking grain alcohol, which is to say, grizzled. Don't expect that to stop the legions, which are likely to show up in force, from singing along.
