BENJAMIN DEL SHREVE
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $6.

After years fronting the enormously popular Christian hard rock act GS Megaphone, Benjamin Del Shreve left the outfit to hone his own catchy brand of melodic rock. Since, he's become a regular, welcome fixture in the Arkansas circuits with a moody, swaggering brand of ramble-rock that keeps one foot in Led Zeppelin's earthy smugness and the other firmly planted in Ryan Adams' groovier, more butt-shaking moments. It's a sound that was met with praise after the release of his 2007 full-length debut, "Brilliant and Charming." Three years later, he's back to release his long-awaited follow-up in "Sleeping Sweetly." If the sample tracks are any indication, he hasn't lost so much of a drop of his dynamic, anthemic power-pop inclinations; if anything, he and his new gray-specked beard have taken a big step forward. Heartfelt local sunshine rockers Free Micah open alongside Del Shreve's brother, Randall Shreve. Doors open at 9 p.m. for the 21 plus show.
