PETER CASE, KEVIN KERBY
9 p.m. White Water Tavern. $15.

Singer/songwriter Peter Case was in L.A. legends The Nerves, a trio that only released one four-song EP (but what an EP!) featuring, among others, a ditty that Blondie made pretty popular ("Hanging on the Telephone") and one by Case ("When You Find Out") that is a nugget of pure power-pop bliss.

Case went on to found The Plimsouls and then eventually to a fruitful solo career exploring various facets of American music. He's a big fan of Mississippi John Hurt (whose 1928 sessions are some of the greatest sides ever recorded, maybe the greatest American music ever, IMO), producing "Avalon Blues," an incredible, star-packed, Grammy-nominated tribute to the blues legend.

Check out Case's "Let Us Now Praise Sleepy John," which is a damn-near perfect album that easily draws from his influences without ever sounding like an imitation or lifeless homage.

Kevin Kerby is as natural a fit for this show as you could possibly ask for. This will be a really good one, folks.

  • City ethics update; campaign limit was supposed to help the little guy

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
