DIY trio 

THE MOVING FRONT/DAVID'S PEGASUS/A+ SET-UP

8:30 p.m., Vino's. $5. 

It's a DIY throwback: Three bands from three different cities who came up around the same time a couple years back and who, in their short existence, have become local indie darlings. From Fort Smith, there's the fiery trio A+ Set-Up, who kick out propulsive, baritone jams that recall the best of early-'80s post-punk. Out of Fayetteville, David's Pegasus exists within a videogame world, where King David is a refugee from a Bible trivia game and Pegasus comes from a game called Rainbow Pegasus Land. Barry Brinegar and company dole out moody, bit-pop songs, sturdy enough to stand on their own, but usually anchored by an 8-bit A/V show that tells their tale. Sure to land the headlining spot, by virtue of their hometown heroics, the Moving Front plays searing post-punk that always inspires fist-pumping. They're stage-testing new-ish material, so come ears open.
