Friday To-Do: Love Ghost / The See / The Easys

Love Ghost.

LOVE GHOST / THE SEE / THE EASYS
10 p.m., Town Pump. $5.

This might be the biggest bill Little Rock's new go-to hangout spot's hosted. You've got The See, which we've written about a lot in this section. The quartet specializes in brawny indie rock with a lot of spots for hollering along. The band's not too far removed from playing house shows and pool parties in Austin during SXSW. Then there's Love Ghost, which has played out sparingly since its formation late last year because guitarist/back-up vocalist Jeff Matika has been busy touring the world with Green Day. The Jason Weinheimer-fronted band is punchy, power-pop-rock. If that's up your alley, best see it now. Who knows when LG will play again? Ditto for The Easys, one of Isaac Alexander's seemingly unlimited projects (Weinheimer, Rob Bell and John Crowley round out the line-up). They haven't played in several months — or maybe years. But after recording at Bruce Watson's Water Valley, Miss., studio last week, the band's ready to show it off. Heck, there's talk of going ahead and releasing the EP, tentatively titled “Sparky,” Friday night. Alexander said this morning that they've opted to record enough for an LP. But Rob Bell is probably going to take his shirt off on stage tonight, so there's that.

Here's a new Easys track, "Our Last Hour":
