Old-time weirdos 

DAMN BULLETS/BRIAN MARTIN AND THE CIRCULATORS

10 p.m., Juanita's. $6.

 

Of all the Arkansas groups who try to channel that old, weird Americana (and there's a surprisingly sizeable contingent), perhaps none tap into it with more skill and unhinged joy than the Damn Bullets and Brian Martin and the Circulators. The Bullets, who started in Conway but now call Little Rock home, return to Juanita's after being selected as one of four finalists in DigitalCafeTour.com's national independent talent search. That honor landed the band in New York for the early part of the month, where they performed several gigs that were filmed by DigitalCafeTour.com and will be available for viewing sometime down the road, they promise. On Friday, look for sneak peeks from the group's forthcoming album, which promises to be as frenetic and scattershot as the Bullets you've come to know and love. Musicians' Showcase runners-up Brian Martin and the Circulators play a swinging folk-blues that touches on all the central barroom themes — dancing, drinking, Southern women. They've inspired quite a following in the Spa City, particularly among the ladies. They often travel. LM.
