THE BOONDOGS
10 p.m., Browning's. $5.*

Little Rock's favorite husband-and-wife-fronted pop-rock outfit launches a fall tour around Little Rock at 6 p.m. Thursday when they play a preview party of the opening of the new Arkansas Arts Center exhibit "Museum School Faculty: Past and Present." It's open only to Arkansas Arts Center members, though those who join at the door get $10 off membership (which ranges from $30-$80).

Friday, the band plays Brownings, the Heights' favorite new hangout, where owner Steve Davis' daughter Elise Davis — a standout pop singer/songwriter herself — is regularly booking local music on weekends.

Saturday at 6 p.m., The Boondogs play "Whoop-De-Do," a fundraiser on the lawn of the Old State House for the museum that includes a pie auction. Tickets are $25 per person or $45 for couples.

On this mini-tour, look for the band to mix old favorites in with a few songs from co-lead singer/songwriter Indy Grotto's forthcoming solo album. It's already generating a lot of buzz locally among those who've heard bits and pieces. Longtime Elvis Costello drummer Pete Thomas, who Tom Waits has called "one of the best drummers alive," plays drums on it. The album's currently being mixed, but Grotto's husband and producer Jason Weinheimer said no release date has been set.

*In the print edition, I confused the Browning's and Old State House dates. Apologies for the confusion.
