Here today, conquering the road tomorrow 

AMERICAN PRINCES

10 p.m., White Water. $5.

 

This is the way it goes. Your favorite local contenders for national indie stardom convene in Little Rock for a week or two (guitarist/vocalist Collins Kilgore lives in New York), practice, write songs and play no more than two shows. Then, they jet away (or van away) to airport terminals or music festivals or a string of gigs somewhere far flung. This time, after Friday's show, they're headed out on a mini-tour — Chicago to New York to Raleigh/Durham to Knoxville. The following weekend, they're in Memphis at Ardent Studios cutting a quick session with Grammy-winning producer/engineer John Hampton, who's worked with everyone from the Replacements to the White Stripes. All that imminent activity should mean that the band's well oiled and ready to unveil some new material on Friday. In fact, they've already debuted two sharp new ones on americanprinces.com for your streaming pleasure. Prolific local singer/songwriter Adam Faucett shares the bill along with Springfield, Mo., Rockers Sweetwater Abilene. LM.
