'SUPPORT SHOOG RADIO'
9 p.m., Revolution. $8.

Local rock radio is alive and well. And it's in good hands! Every Monday afternoon from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., KABF 88.3 broadcasts "Shoog Radio" (think Nancy Gribble's preferred term of endearment), a Little Rock-centric program dedicated to promoting the town's numerous, ultra-active, gig-friendly bands. It's hosted and programmed by Christy Ewing and Cheyenne Matthews, two local music boosters with the complete opposite of "radio face." They'll take to the stage to host "Support Shoog Radio," a fund-raiser for KABF that's set to offer a killer five-band bill of local (and Times) favorites.

In alphabetical order: Booyah! Dad, the buzzy hard-rock/dance trio; Ginsu Wives (NSFW), the defining local cult band powered by X-rated synths, bracing vocal effects and deep booty beats; The Reparations, whose new album, "Ride or Die," is 40 minutes of the rowdy, brainy Southern rockers at their best; Sweet Eagle, a local super-group that stays drunk on Nuggets-era garage rock and Dead Boys-style Midwestern punk; and Winston Family Orchestra, whose piano/drum/bass twist on pop makes up "Valloween," a dangerously addictive album that rocks for the kid in everybody. Check out video of the bands and more on Shoog's piece of Internet real estate at shoogradio.blogspot.com.
