9 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

For brevity, consider five albums, a cross-continental tour for each and a new release barely a month old. This should bring us up to speed on this Texas power-pop trio, originally called Magneto USA way back in 1994. With heavy emphasis on lead and supporting vocal harmonies, Fastball delivers a full-bodied flavor that really sounds more like a five-piece crew than three. Credit bassist Tony Scalzo for pulling the additional weight of shared lead vocals, guitar and piano, while Miles Zuniga holds double duty as lead vocalist/guitarist, and drummer Joey Suffield skates clean with no vocal responsibilities, but includes the all-encompassing “percussion” in his skill set. Although the band is no stranger to Little Rock, it'll get a loading dose of local support action by way of pop-rock standout Big Silver, which should result in one Southern-ly comfortable gig.
