BEN NICHOLS, ADAM FAUCETT
9 p.m. Revolution. $15.

This is going to present quite the dilemma: American Aquarium and Austin Lucas or Ben Nichols and Adam Faucett? But honestly, either one will be enjoyable for the discerning fan of barroom country rock.

By this point, Nichols, who has led Memphis troopers Lucero for going on 15 years, is an elder statesman of the scene. Dude's probably got more miles logged on his odometer than ol' J.B. Hunt's entire fleet. Both solo and with Lucero, he's done just about everything under the sun rock-wise, from wistful folk ballads to whiskey-soaked alt-country ragers, quietly contemplative C&W to ragged, Replacements-style rockers.

Times readers and local music fans are also no doubt quite familiar with Faucett. He's been touring extensively over recent months, having already earned a strong local following through his high, strong singing, evocative lyrics and distinctive songwriting.

This show is a fundraiser for the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies' inaugural Arkansas Sounds Music Festival, which is coming up Sept. 28-29 and includes Lucero, Black Oak Arkansas, The Cate Brothers and many more.

    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.
