Tuesday To-Do: Slobberbone

SLOBBERBONE
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $12.

It's a rare treat for alt-country fans. Slobberbone, the best terribly named band Texas ever birthed, has reunited for a seven-date mini-reunion tour, and, thanks to the tireless efforts of Last Chance Records' Travis Hill and the fact that Kevin Kerby makes Little Rock his home, White Water rates a stop-over. Led by Brent Best (who grew up playing music with Kerby in Texas) and named for a dog's chew toy, Slobberbone entered the scene in 1992 with a sound Best has always maintained is “rock, pure and simple.” Some might disagree. In the decade before it splintered apart, the band released four albums that trade on heartbreak, hangovers and stylistic variety. An acoustic ballad, ornamented with fiddle and mandolin, here; a full-throated cowpunk'd rallying cry there. Expect the crowd to know the words to those and everything in between. Tickets were still available at press time via the tavern and lastchancemusic.com, but White Water will declare a sell-out once it sells 150. Best act fast. Appropriately, Kevin Kerby and Battery open. Look out for trash talking.
