In Brief, April 16-18 

THURSDAY, APRIL 16

At Juanita's, tight, clever local rockers Falcon Scott play their melodic brand of alongside Southern soul man Sean Michel, who has the best beard in a town full of great ones, 9 p.m., $8. Although they're specters on the internet, Flash LaRue is, in fact, real and really good; they're at the newly smoke-free White Water Tavern, 9:30 p.m. We don't even need to tell you what Interstate Buffalo sounds like; they sound just like you'd expect a band called “Interstate Buffalo” to. They take their loud, jam-y act to Town Pump, 10 p.m., $3. In Hot Springs, Maxine's has an acoustic set from Times writer JT Tarpley and a raucous set from one of the best musical exports Little Rock has to offer in The See, 9 p.m., free. At Cajun's, John & Kenny play, cover-free, for the sunset and deck set, 5:30 p.m., while cockrockers White Noise Theory rock for the night owls, 8:30 p.m., $5.

FRIDAY, APRIL 17


A one-night engagement of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber's infamous rock opera, comes to UCA's Reynolds Auditorium with Ted Neely reprising the titular role that scored him a Golden Globe in Norman Jewison's 1973 adaptation, 7:30 p.m., $10-$50. Fronted by an ex-Mulehead, Dave Raymond and Present Company, the new jacks in Max Recordings' bullpen, take their twang-rock to the Sticky Fingerz stage, 9 p.m. Downtown Music does what they do best by hosting a night of really loud, really heavy music by Zucura, Black Market Ministry, Buzzardstein and — don't be fooled by their unassuming name — Jungle Juice, 8 p.m., $6.

SATURDAY, APRIL 18

Juanita's hosts a fundraiser for Arkansas Children's Hospital with music by Jessica 7, Wishtribe, Knee Deep and Attack the Mind, 9 p.m., $10. We're hoping the front man/drummer keeps his junk-hugging bicycle shorts in the van this time when Cowboy Mouth, the long-tenured, New Orleans rock act, comes to Revolution, 9 p.m., $10 adv., $12 d.o.s. River Market young gun Bill Street has “The Truth: Beauty and the Beast Edition,” with performances by Seanfresh, D'Nique Renae, Epiphany, Osyrus, Bijoux, J. White and Jeron, 9 p.m., $10. Little Rock sends a handful of our local sages down to Hot Springs when The Boondogs and the Greg Spradlin Outfit take it to Maxine's alongside Andrew Anderson, the new transplant who deserves every bit of buzz he's getting right now, 9 p.m.
