To-Do 

HOLLY GOLIGHTLY & THE BROKEOFFS
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $7.

From the Teddy Boy movement of the '70s to the brogued hounds that still scour through dusty boxes of 45s in Memphis' record stores, it's no secret that the UK harbors a sizable population of Southern garage-rock fetishists. With 19 albums in 15 years, Holly Golightly is certainly one of the most prolific, if not well-loved, of their ilk. Equal parts Lynn Anderson, Robert Pollard and John Lurie, with a flair for fashion akin to Granny's in “The Beverly Hillbillies,” Holly and her new backing band, The Brokeoffs, can jump from balladic torch song to slide-heavy porch stomper with such ease that we less talented Southerners sometimes can't help but shoot a jealous eye their way. Thankfully, one of Arkansas's best soul-folksters, Brian Martin, will be on hand to represent the deep South.
