Cool Shoes returns to Downtown Music Hall with their dugout of DJs waiting to spin electro, dubstep and hip-hop, 10 p.m., $5 early admission.

Always a local favorite, Memphis' John Paul Keith and the One Four Fives brings a slick take on early rock 'n' roll to White Water Tavern, 10 p.m.

And at the Faulkner County Library, the UALR Guitar Ensemble puts the spin on Joe Pass, The Beatles and more, 7 p.m., free.


SATURDAY 1/22

Juanita's goes dark (and heavy) with two Russellville bands in hard rockers Afternoon Delight, nu-metalists Dark From Day One and Hot Springs industrial act The Vail, 9 p.m.

Swinging, self-described "voodoobilly" femme fatale Izzy Cox (left) and Hot Springs country and western wunderkind Andrew Anderson pick and howl for the crowd at Maxine's Pub, 9 p.m., $5.
