In brief, June 11 


Kevin Gordon, who's been giggin' around town over the last several months more than a lot of local acts, returns on Thursday to White Water Tavern to perform what he calls “indie swamp,” likely including material from his full-length due later this year, 9 p.m., $5. At Satellite, Jonathan Wilkins offers literate, aggro-folk for free at Satellite, 9 p.m. Vino's continues to host a Battle of the Bands, with acts This is Jacob, Rigby Fawkes, She Is The Antagonist, Danger Ready and Eve's Descent squaring off, 8 p.m., $5. At Afterthought, Thurman and Nesbitt specialize in gypsy and hot jazz, 8 p.m., $5.



At Downtown Music, the Tom Sweet Band and its masked front man celebrate the release of its new CD, bound to be a strange collection of ribald garage-folk, with help from the groove-laden, mostly instrumental collective Eclipse Glasses and bizarre industrial rap duo Pyscho Syntax, 8 p.m., $7. From Cork, Ireland, the Fuchsia Band plays traditional Celtic folk music at Studio Joe, 7:30 p.m., $5-$15. As they do fairly often lately, party bands Tragikly White and the Gettys team up to form the super cover group Tragikly Getty at Revolution, 9 p.m. Pop-y singer/songwriter Bryan Frazier comes to Satellite Cafe at 9 p.m. for a free show. Soul shouter Big John Miller headlines at Cajun's Wharf, 9:30 p.m., $5.



The Little Rock Wind Symphony offers its annual “Stars and Stripes Celebration” at MacArthur Park, 7 p.m., free. Popular roots-y jam band Parachute Woman plays a long set at Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7. Juanita's hosts sleight-of-hand artists Dr. Jon, who specializes in “comedy stage hypnosis,” and illusionist Michael Wilkinson, 9:30 p.m., Juanita's.



The Clinton School and Movies in the Park collaborate to host “Sunday at the Movies,” a double feature of two sure-to-be crowd pleasing documentaries. The first, “US vs. John Lennon,” begins at 2 p.m. and chronicles the late Beatle's anti-war activism in the late '60s and '70s and the government's attempt to silence him. “We Believe: Chicago and its Cubs” follows at 5 p.m. and should draw an audience of those banded together by the sadism that is following the Cubs year in and year out, though this new film promises a hopeful spin. Both are free.

    Just think: If Democrats had turned out 78,000 more votes in three states in November, people could be reveling today in the prospect of impeaching and convicting President Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, as some Republican lawmakers had promised to try to do if she won.
