Falconberry and Denny 

DANA FALCONBERRY/ CHRIS DENNY

9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

 

It's a bill of voices of such strength and oddness to jar even the drunk chatterers in the back into attention. Hendrix alum Dana Falconberry, who's currently carving out a name for herself in the Austin, Texas, indie-folk scene, sings in a voice that's delicate but capable of great, sweeping dynamism. With one EP under her belt, Falconberry's promising a full-length sometime this year. If “Love Will Never Leave You Alone,” the album's bewitching debut single, is any indication, she's soon likely to be known well beyond Austin and Arkansas. Maybe a little farther on a similar trajectory, Chris Denny and the Old Soles return home after a two-week swing through Oklahoma, Texas and Louisiana. With the addition of guitar whiz Judson Spillyards to the line-up and marathon daily practice sessions, Denny and the Old Soles lately seem to be less the Chris Denny show — though Denny's preternatural voice is still a highlight — than a band pursuing the Allman Brothers model, playing Southern rock graced with a touch of blue-eyed soul: music that's jam-y in the best way.
