SLOBBERBONE
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $12.50

And here's where it gets interesting for the hordes of alt-country devotees in Arkansas. While Old 97s are downtown, White Water Tavern hosts Slobberbone, the '90s alt-country cult heroes who reformed last year; Glossary, the Tennessee roots rockers with an electric following in Arkansas; Two Cow Garage, a raspy punk-country outfit; and Kevin Kerby, the unofficial poet laureate of Pulaski County. Thankfully for the folks torn between the two nights, the four-band lineup, a loose "This is American Music" revue, is in town for two nights. It's a double-header birthday party for Last Chance Records' Travis Hill that has the bands doing regular sets on Friday night before getting loose on Saturday night (also at White Water; same time and price) for a roundtable of pickin' and grinnin' through covers and rarities. Also, Saturday afternoon has Joey Kneiser, Micah Schnabel and Brent Best (of Glossary, Two Cow Garage and Slobberbone, respectively) at Arkansas CD & Record Exchange for an in-store performance around 4 p.m. Birthday boy Hill says he's confirmed visitors from 16 different states who are driving and flying in for the weekend shindig, so Little Rock, be sure to be on your rowdiest behavior for our guests, y'hear?
