SWINGIN' UTTERS
10 p.m., White Water Tavern, $12.

All right, all you old-school punks, it's time to get out those leopard-print creepers and your beat-up leather jacket, dial up the babysitter and get ready to call in sick to work on Friday, because unfortunately, you don't get many chances to catch a punk band of this caliber in Little Rock very often. Since the late '80s, San Francisco's Swingin' Utters has been one of the main torchbearers for catchy-as-hell punk rock rooted in the sounds of The Clash, Sham 69 and Stiff Little Fingers. Over the years, the band has expanded its sonic palate to include a helping of melodic roots-rock into the mix, and its latest album "Here, Under Protest," is its first in eight years. Seeing a band like the Swingin' Utters at a venue as intimate as the White Water is a rare opportunity. Boston's Continental — founded by Rick Barton, of Dropkick Murphys fame — should be a great match. Little Rock's The Reparations open the show.

    You've got to figure that a band from frozen-ass Winnipeg is just gonna be way gnarlier and tougher than a band from some sun-kissed tropical clime where people wear tank tops and flip-flops year-round.
