Heartless Bastards, tonight 

HEARTLESS BASTARDS
9 p.m., Juanita's. $10 adv., $12.

Erika Wennerstrom's voice has been compared to Janis Joplin's and PJ Harvey's and (hilariously) Robert Plant's, none of which, to these ears at least, quite capture her particular sound. But there is a clear connection between them all — that big burst of feeling they can summon in huge swoops between quiet and gale-force howling. Wennerstrom, who came up in Dayton, Ohio, when Guided by Voices and Braniac and The Breeders were still hanging around, caught a break from another member of Ohio rock royalty, when The Black Keys' Patrick Carney caught the Bastards at a sparsely attended gig in Akron and hooked the band up with Fat Possum, where they've since recorded three critically acclaimed albums of blues-inflected anthemic rock. They're joined on Tuesday by two of Little Rock's finest, swaggering rockers Jonathan Wilkins and the Reparations and recent Arkansas Times Musician Showcase winner Brother Andy and His Big Damn Mouth.
