Nineties rock revival 

8:30 p.m., Juanita's. $12 adv., $15 d.o.s.

Manchester Orchestra worships at the temple of '90s alt-rock. The loud/soft dynamics of the Pixies and Weezer. The swirling guitars and grunge-filtered pop of Nirvana and the Smashing Pumpkins. The pissed-off brattiness of Isaac Brock and Perry Farrell. All shines through in the Atlanta five-piece's 2009 album, “Mean Everything to Nothing.” Recorded with indie-heavyweight producer Joe Chiccarelli (The Shins, The Raconteurs, My Morning Jacket), the album finds the band inching ever closer to the sort of major commercial success their forebears enjoyed. Hard touring never hurt. The band returns to Little Rock just a little more than four months after supporting the Silversun Pickups at Revolution. Look for a big crowd. Little Rock indie collective Bear Colony and Nashville pop-rockers Harrison Hudson open.
