THE ROMANY RYE
9 p.m., Union (train) Station. $10.

When Chris Denny ditched The Natives — Jesse Bates, Ryan Hitt, Judson Spillyards and Joshua Spillyards — a few months after he and the band cut what was supposed to be their debut on a national indie with juice, the local consensus had the backing unit returning to Little Rock and joining the legions of local musicians who've glimpsed national success only to become the victim of unfortunate circumstance. Through members of Dawes, who toured with Denny and the Natives, the guys met Luke MacMaster, once the leader of a buzz-y California band called The Colour, who now records as The Romany Rye, and they hit if off (and brought their buddy Whitman Bransford, of Mammoth Orange and Silverton, into the fold). Now, they're soon to hit the road for a two-month North American tour opening for The Delta Spirit. Thursday, this incarnation of the group plays its first official concert. The first 50 people get a copy of Romany Rye's debut, “Hello Good Bye” (recorded before the local guys joined). It's open to all ages. There'll be food and, according to Judson Spillyards, “cheap drinks.” Catch the band again at Riverfest at 4:30 p.m. on Sunday on the Triple-S Alarm Stage and then not again until July 13 at Juanita's.
