Thursday To-Do: Weisenheimers

THE WEISENHEIMERS
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

Kindred strummers and shirtless drummers — that's what this rock band is made of. Since the last Weisenheimers CD release show failed miserably to deliver on its promise of having merchandise to sell, don't expect tonight's audience to be nearly as understanding and forgiving if guitarist Mark Wyers, who still credits UPS for the mistake, shows up with more empty boxes and promises. He assures me they're in his trunk, which is where he'll be found days later should this happen twice. So anyway, I had the distinct pleasure of sharing suds and grub with this crew sometime last December in celebration of Mark's 103rd birthday, and a nicer bunch of rowdy rockers is hard to find. Drummer “Dirty Sean” wore a shirt (state law) and only had 16 beers before taking his child to a church function. Guitarist Micah Wyers was nice enough to clean calzone from his beard  — with a fork. His brother Mark tearfully went on and on about UPS to his infant son and wife and lead vocalist/bassist Karle Johnson remained sharp-witted and pretty well-mannered, considering the company. In any event, this show features two Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase semi-finalists (Magic Hassle opens), and CDs or no, is certainly worth checking out.
