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

The best part of Craig Brewer's Memphis music series on MTV — other than hearing Ben Nichols say the words “Muck Sticky” — was the River City Tanlines fiery performance of “I'm Your Negative” amidst a roller derby brawl. Since 2004, the three-piece, led by the irrepressible Alicja Trout, has spread the gospel of Memphis rock 'n' roll throughout North America and Europe, releasing two LPs and a host of seven inches along the way. The band is punk in presentation and often in sound, with a solid helping of garage rock and riot grrl and a touch of New Wave. It's not to be missed. The new North Little Rock-based rock trio Brother Andy and His Big Damn Band opens along with folk-rocker Jonathan Wilkins.
