Thursday: White Wives, Nick Flora, The Manhattan Transfer and more

White Wives plays Downtown Music Hall Thursday.
  • White Wives plays Downtown Music Hall Thursday.

Downtown Music Hall has White Wives, featuring former members of Anti-Flag, Dandelion Snow and American Armada. But don't mistake this for a side-project or a synthesis of the members' other groups. The band has a markedly different sound, more widescreen indie rock than political punk. Opening acts are Josh the Devil & The Sinners and Adam Faucett, 7 p.m., $8. (An aside: if you're doing a Google Image search for White Wives, say, to put a picture of the band on a blog, make dad-gum sure your SafeSearch is turned on to the "Strict" setting. Actually, I just changed it to "Strict" and you know what? How about just don't search "White Wives" on Google Images on any type of setting.)

Arkadelphia native Nick Flora traffics in bouncy indie rock in the mode of Ben Folds and David Bazan. Flora plays at Revolution with North Little Rock jangle-meisters Knox Hamilton and heart-on-sleeve singer-songwriter Jarred McCauley of Little Rock, 8 p.m., $8 21 and older, $10 younger than 21.

Long-running nostalgia act The Manhattan Transfer plays a holiday show at the Walton Arts Center in Fayetteville, 7 p.m., $28-$54.

Standup comic Rahn Ramey has appeared on HBO's Comedy Relief and in the films "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" and "Escape from New York." Ramey is at The Loony Bin through Saturday night, various show times, $7-$10.

Irish Consul General Paul Gleeson makes his first visit to Arkansas to meet with local dignitaries, Trapnall Hall, 6 p.m.

    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.
