Saturday To-Do: American Princes / Smoke Up Johnny / Eclipse Glasses

9 p.m., Revolution.

Since guitarist and vocalist Collins Kilgore moved to New York awhile back, the Princes, like the Big Cats or Ashtray Babyhead, have mostly scheduled their Little Rock shows around holidays. But, because the band's still really active — they tour nationally and work the press circuit; their latest album, “Other People,” was just named Magnet magazine's album of the year — they come around even on the lesser holidays. But Christmastime is always special. The dudes usually share the bill with friends in buzzy local bands — in this case, irrepressible bar rockers Smoke Up Johnny and groove-laden Eclipse Glasses — and everyone seems to come out of the woodwork. It'll be more emotional than usual. The band will perform without longtime bassist Luke Hunsicker, who recently underwent surgery to remove a brain tumor. The prognosis is for a full recovery. Like many working musicians, Hunsicker lacks health insurance. Obviously, his medical bills are going to be exorbitant. The band plans to soon set up a link for anyone who wants to donate on; tonight, friends and fans will be able to pick up special Luke-themed shirts. While this gig will be a showcase for the band and their friends, an encore, on Monday, at White Water, offers fans a long night of nothing but the Princes.
