Sunday To-Do: The Small Ponds

THE SMALL PONDS
7 p.m., White Water Tavern.

Steadily, Travis Hill is turning his Little Rock label Last Chance Records into a national player. He's released material from Memphis' rock 'n' roll throwbacks John Paul Keith and the One Four Fives, Southern rock hero Joey Kneiser (of Glossary) and rising North Carolina alt-country act American Aquarium. And now, thanks undoubtedly to his relationship with American Aquarium, Hill's releasing the debut album from The Small Ponds, a new Raleigh, N.C.-based trio that includes folk-rock chanteuse Caitlin Cary (Whiskeytown, Tres Chicas), Matt Douglas (The Proclivities) and Skillet Gilmore (Whiskeytown). An early intimate show at White Water should be a good venue for the group's moody, slow-build relationship songs. Cary and Douglas have pure voices that sound great together. Slobberbone front man Brent Best, who's damn near a regular at White Water, opens the show with a solo set.
