Thursday’s Music

Roger Creager.

Giving you the music a day early:

Singer/songwriter Roger Creager has spent more than a decade spreading his version of Texas country, a version he brings to Stickyz that is built on his stories of late-night trips to Mexico and his wild honky tonk live image — an image learned from watching Jerry Jeff Walker and Robert Earl Keen. Expect a night of real country tales and rabble-rousing music. The opening act is to be announced, but the music starts at 9:30 p.m. with a $8 cover for the 21-and-up show.

A number of local acts are combining their talents at Rev Room for a Support Shoog Radio Benefit Show. And what is Shoog Radio? The KABF 88.3 program that every Monday from 1-3 p.m. plays two hours of local music. Recent playlists have included Soophie Nun Squad’s “The Drawbridge,” The Reparations “Four Bars” and Adam Faucett’s “You Do It.” And the bands set to play Shoogfest are all local, too, including bar rockers The Reparations, Little Rock experimental techno rockers Ginsu Wives, garage-y folk poppers Winston Family Orchestra, dance-infused garage rockers Booyah! Dad and local rock ‘n’ roll supergroup Sweet Eagle. The music starts at 9 p.m. with an $8 cover for the all-ages show.

Here’s Roger Creager with his “I’m From the Beer Joint”:
