DAWES/ THE ROMANY RYE/ PETER WOLF CRIER
7:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

Sunday, Sticky Fingerz opens its doors early for a triple-bill of throwback, harmony-drenched folk rock. Dawes, the headliner, is a North Hills, Calif., quartet, whose formula borrows heavily from the sound of '60s era Laurel Canyon (think Crosby, Stills & Nash). Little Rock's seen the band grow from a promising upstart to a buzz-y national act that's signed to ATO (home to My Morning Jacket and Drive-By Truckers). The Romany Rye hopes to follow in Dawes' footsteps. Led by California singer/songwriter Luke MacMaster and featuring Little Rock's Whitman Bransford, Ryan Hitt, Judson Spillyards and Joshua Spillyards, the group came together after Chris Denny disbanded The Natives (which included Hitt and the brothers Spillyards) and the members of Dawes put MacMaster and the Little Rock guys in touch. Anchored by Judson Spillyards' ace guitar work, The Romany Rye explores the same sort of California sun-dappled harmonies, but with more rock punch. Minneapolis-based folk duo Peter Wolf Crier comes from the same Eau Claire, Wis., scene that birthed Bon Iver and the two-piece specializes in similarly otherworldly folk as Bon Iver's Justin Veron, but with less sadsackery.
