BISHOP ALLEN

8 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $10.

 

Maybe Christian Rudder can get an early Thanksgiving. The Little Rock native returns home for the second time in 2009 with his increasingly popular indie band this weekend. Since he left town years back to go to Harvard, he's amassed a pretty killer resume. During and after college, he served as the editorial director for TheSpark.com, where he designed and often participated in hilarious, web-famous science gags like the Stinky Feet Project. After TheSpark.com sold to Barnes and Noble, Rudder and the founders of TheSpark.com developed OKCupid.com, which has become one of the Internet's largest dating services. Meanwhile, Rudder starred in one of the first so-called “mumblecore” films, Andrew Bujalski's “Funny Ha Ha,” and formed Bishop Allen with his Harvard classmate Justin Rice. Since 2003, the band's made steady gains in the indie world and beyond, from self-releasing and self-promoting its first album (to a lot of buzz), to releasing an EP a month in 2006, to landing one of its songs featured prominently in “Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.” Bishop Allen, which plays hook-heavy, stripped-down pop-rock, continues to tour in support of its fourth full-length, “Grrr…”
