, the raw and impressive local rock outfit, wasn't on the bill when I did up the to-do list, so here's a little something solely about Coach:
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.
Let's hope it's is a sign of a re-emergence. After a brisk run of shows in 2005 and 2006, local rockers Coach
have been lying low, but now there's word of a new EP. Maybe they've been holed up in the studio crafting the next big indie rock jam, or maybe they've been studying abroad. (The fellas are elusive.) They're led by singers/guitarists Jeff Allison and Joe Bierman and drummer Chris Allison and bassist Eric Schneider round out the line-up. Formed in 2004, the group recorded in 2005 at Blue Chair Studios in Austin, Ark. Those songs, simply dubbed “The Blue Chair Sessions,” went only as far as MySpace and purevolume, but hinted at immense promise. Their best tracks recall the late-'90s swirling guitar-rock of the Pixies and Pavement, yet without sounding derivative. Glister, a Southern rock group from Oklahoma, is also on the bill.
