In brief, May 21 



Like it used to do, the city's pre-eminent jazz threesome, the Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio, takes on a double bill, beginning the night at the Capital Bar, 5 p.m., free, and ending it at the Afterthought, 8:30 p.m., $5. From Pine Bluff, alt-rock act Out of Ashes headlines at Revolution, with support from Always April and Knee Deep, 7 p.m., $5. Local, female-fronted party band Typhoid Mary returns to Cajun's Wharf, 9 p.m.




For those hoping to party with the Riverfest masses for as long as possible, the Gettys will pack in those 18 and up at Revolution, beginning at 5 p.m., $5 (with Riverfest wristband) or $10 (without). Juanita's hosts local soul crooner, producer and party promoter J-One and his Black Swagga Friday, which also features Funky Logic and DJ Klassic. Dress is “urban sophisticate,” 10 p.m. At the Afterthought, Donna Massey and Blue Eyed Soul play R&B that you know the words to, 9 p.m., $7. Up-and-coming hyphenate performer Jordan Atwater (she does some fusion of jazz, pop, rock and R&B) teams with pianist Carl Mouton at a free show at Satellite, 9 p.m. At the ACAC, Austin's Big Poppa E, who's been on HBO's “Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry,” leads a poetry slam that also features Arkansas poets and an open mic, 7 p.m., $5. If Riverfest grows tiresome, the Travs are taking on their upstate rival every day through Tuesday at Dickey-Stephens. On Friday, the game starts at 6 p.m., $6-$10.




Outstanding Nashville singer/songwriter Kevin Gordon returns to Satellite, guitar in tow, for a free solo show, 9 p.m. Goodtime folk rockers the Damn Bullets headline a show at White Water in preparation for their appearance at Wakarusa in a couple of weeks, 9 p.m., $5. At Discovery, Platinumb handles the disco, while Balance mans the ones and twos in the lobby, 12 a.m., $10. Literate folk-rockers Sean Rock and the Toltecs offer a free show at Off Center, 9 p.m., free. Local joke rock bands the Throbbing Testicles and Flameing Daeth Fearies share a bill at Juanita's with Fayetteville garage-rockers the Witz, 9:30 p.m., $5 adv., $7 d.o.s.
