Michael Burks.

Michael Burks didn't earn his nickname, “Iron Man,” from the comic. Rather, it springs from Burks' reputation for delivering intense, physical live sets and touring non-stop. The Camden native returns to Sticky Fingerz, 9 p.m., $10.

At the Valley of the Vapors Fest in Hot Springs, headliners Murder by Death bring a sweeping sound a la the Arcade Fire. With several well-regarded albums to their credit and a reputation for strong live shows, they should be worth catching. Haymarket Riot and the Bitter Tears open the show. Haymarket Riot plays loud, spastic, bass-heavy rock in the Fugazi mold. The Bitter Tears, a self-billed vaudevillian act that features horns and some country twang, may be one of the festival's most out-there groups. 8 p.m., $5.

Fayetteville's Benjamin Del Shreve specializes in swaggering, radio-ready rock. He's at Juanita's with Johnny Rocket, 10 p.m., $7.

Chris Denny has been a fixture on Little Rock stages lately, but that's soon to change. Next week, he hits the road with Graham Wilkinson until mid-April. Before he's gone, catch him and his band at White Water, 10 p.m., $5.

In theater, "Busytown," at the Children's Theater; "Little Shop of Horrors," at Murry's; and "The Foreigner," at the Rep, all continue. See our calendar for showtimes and prices

Kristin Jackson is a Playboy model turned DJ (DJ KayJay). DJ Max is a former Little Rock videographer turned Las Vegas DJ. Breezy Osborne is a former Little Rock celebrity (if such a thing exists) turned Las Vegas yoga instructor and girlfriend to DJ Max. Together, the three host “Girls Night Out” at Revolution, 9 p.m., $10 (for guys; girls get in for free).

Osceola's Finding Jimmy Hoffa celebrates the release of its latest Southern-grunge-filled album, “Southern Hospitality,” at the Village. Sufferkate and Sychosys open.

All the bluegrass gospel fans congregate for the annual Gaither Homecoming at Alltel Arena, 7 p.m., $21.25-$38.25.

Blues rock standout Shannon Boshears headlines at Zack's, 9 p.m.
