Social commentator, champion of hip-hop, Georgetown professor and a rare example of a modern-day public intellectual, Michael Eric Dyson opens up Philander Smith's "Bless the Mic" series in the M.L. Harris Auditorium, 7 p.m.

Canadian three-piece AIDS Wolf combines no-wave, hardcore punk and spazzing synths at Downtown Music; brand-new locals Heart Takers and garage-punkers Shoplift open, 9 p.m., $5.

At Juanita's, The Backsliders take The Pretenders out on a dirt road truck ride, metaphorically. They play at 9 p.m., $5.

Femme-fronted New Englanders Grand Evolution take to Vino's alongside hooky New Orleanians Herrington, 8 p.m., $8.

Bluesman and soon-to-be featured artist at the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival (the King Biscuit Festival) Willie "Big Eyes" Smith plays a set in Benton for the back porch crowd at Denton's Trotline, 8 p.m.

The River City Men's Chorus performs at the Trinity United Methodist Church, 7 p.m.

And, as always, the River Market district hosts the weekly parties "Posh" and "In Too Deep" at Ernie Biggs and Deep Ultra Lounge, respectively, 9 p.m.
