Thursday To-Do: Poison Arrows / Heypenny / the Heat Machine

This song is good.

POISON ARROWS/ HEYPENNY/ THE HEAT MACHINE
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

It's the second of three weeks of bands heading to and from SXSW, and White Water's kicking off the weekend with one of those wildly diverse bills one might've regularly stumbled into at the tavern three or four years ago. From Chicago, the Poison Arrows represent File 13, the Little Rock-born label that's now based in the Windy City. The experimental trio, featuring ex-members of Don Cabellero and Atombombpocketknife, comes to town behind its engagingly discordant recent album, “Casual Wave.” Nashville-based pop rockers Heypenny features two Arkansans, Little Rock native Benjamin Elkins and Fayetteville's D.J. Murphy. The band has a new album, “Parade,” with a hugely catchy single with the same name, but it seems to be available only in the UK at the moment. Maybe the band will have some imports on hand. From Nebraska, the seven-piece band the Heat Machine melds ska, rock and '50s era pop.
