BIG SILVER'S THANKSGIVING SPECIAL
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

Late-year holidays in Little Rock — they always bring out some killer local rock shows. This Thanksgiving's big 'un finds dizzyingly prolific Isaac Alexander bringing his least prolific band back to the stage for the first time in so long he couldn't remember when Big Silver last played when asked early this week. Like all bands Alexander fronts, the twang-pop quintet specializes in Fab Four-esque melodies and earwormy lyrical hooks. Friday sees the group getting a little help from its friends. Massive bearded singer/songwriter extraordinaire Adam Faucett, folk-pop chanteuse and opera composer Bonnie Montgomery, Big Cats front man and Max Recordings head honcho Burt Taggart and folk standout and radio hostess Amy Garland are all scheduled to lend their talents to Big Silver for a song or two. In exchange, the band'll back each performer in one of his or her songs. A Big Silver-backed version of "Virginia's Aria" from Bonnie Montgomery's "Billy Blythe," maybe? You never know.
