In brief, Nov. 27 

THURSDAY 11/27

It's slim pickin's for those of us who need a little nightlife to take the edge off all the togetherness. At On the Rocks, home of ridiculous drink specials (like 3-foot-tall beer towers), local jam band Free Verse shares the bill with a mystery band, 9:30 p.m., $5. And at the Capitol Bar, the Ted Ludwig Jazz Trio, a.k.a. the most prolific performing group in town, holds it down as usual, 5 p.m., free.

 

FRIDAY 11/28

At Cajun's, soul belter Big John Miller headlines at 9 p.m., $5. Formerly known as Molten Lava, '80s cover band Boom Kinetic, from Fayetteville, likely pulls in a crowd of post-Hogs-game revelers at Revolution, 9:30 p.m., $6 (unlike most shows at the venue, this one's only open to ages 21 and older). Down the street at Sticky Fingerz, the tribute band Nevermind mines Kurt Cobain and co.'s back catalogue, 9:30 p.m., $6. A trio of hard rockin' Conway-based acts share a bill at Juanita's: the Rollin' Jack Dandies (formerly Modal Wayward), Natural State and Anxiety, 10 p.m., $7 (open to 18 and older). At White Water, local jam band Weakness for Blondes performs with Fayetteville Americana jammers Charliehorse, 9 p.m., $5. Local crooner William Staggers sings soul classics at the Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7. Ted Ludwig and co. return to the Capital Hotel Bar, 8 p.m., free.

 

SATURDAY 11/29

Local trumpet stand-out Rodney Block brings his tight jazz band, the Real Music Lovers, to the Afterthought, 9 p.m., $7. Barroom rock kings Smoke Up Johnny headline at White Water with rising local garage-rockers the Weisenheimers, 9 p.m., $5. At the Village, Hollywood Undead mixes rap with alt-rock in a more confessional style than the group's forebears, Limp Bizkit and Korn, 8 p.m., $12 adv., $15 d.o.s. North Little Rock rockers the Solomon Davis Band play their typical haunt, Cornerstone, 9 p.m., $5. At Discovery, regulars Michael Shane and Platinumb DJ in the club, while g-force puts butts on the floor in the lobby, midnight, $10. The Intruders cover a wide spectrum — blues, rock reggae, New Orleans funk — at Cajun's, 9 p.m., $5. Out at West End, popular cover band Sharpe Dunaway and the Blue Meanies play songs you know, 9 p.m., $5.
