HAYES CARLL
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $13 adv., $15 d.o.s.

Here's where the crowd starts hollering: “Arkansas, my head hurts/I'd love to stick around and maybe make it worse.” That's how Hayes Carll opens a song on his latest album, “Trouble in Mind.” A Texas native who schooled at Hendrix and married an Arkansas woman, Carll's no stranger to showing Natural State love. He named his second album “Little Rock,” and even as his career's blossomed, he's still managed to make it to town once every couple months. Look for Saturday's crowd to be especially swollen. There'll be two bumps: Hendrix alums and old friends home for the holiday, and those newly converted to the singer/songwriter's charms via all the year-end lists in which he's topping out. Not without good reason. Long billed as an heir to twang-y Texas songwriters who made careers out of striking an anti-Nashville pose, Carll's come into his own on “Trouble,” particularly on the song “She Left Me For Jesus.” It won the Americana Music Association's Song of the Year on the strength of lines like, “She's given up whiskey and I've taken up wine/While she prays for his troubles, she's forgot about mine/I'm a gonna get even; I can't handle the shame/Why last time we made love she even called out his name.” Check out the video for the song on Rock Candy. It was enough to get the Onion on board as a tour sponsor.
