Giving you the music a day early:
The Derailers have been around for almost two decades now. That’s kind of hard to believe; not because the band doesn’t have staying power but 20 years is just a long time in general. Stephen King is a fan and you should be, too; that is, if you dig honky tonk music and the Bakersfield sound of Buck Owens. And who doesn’t? The quartet comes to Stickyz. No word on an opening act, but expect the music at 9 p.m. with a $10 cover for the 18-and-up show.
Here’s what Creative Loafing Atlanta said about noise rock trio Whores: “Bearing witness to a Whores show is like being crushed under the tread of a Panzer tank as it charges into battle.” If that sounds like fun, catch Whores at White Water Tavern for a massive, ferocious sound. The show starts at 10 p.m. Also on the bill will be Little Rock’s own The Nigh Ends.
North Little Rock cigar-box luthier and hill country blues master Bluesboy Jag is staying close to home tonight and playing a show at The Joint, a relatively new spot in Argenta. Well, he’s not by himself but bringing along the band — harmonica player and vocalist Jawbone Kenyon, drummer Joe Roitz and bassist Bass Joe — so it’s a Bluesboy Jag Band show. Expect the music at 8:30 p.m. with a $3. It’s a 21-and-up show. And expect some of the best blues music one can hear.
