THICK SYRUP PRESENTS
9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $4.
Theme nights are all the rage these days. The Village has lately gotten acronym happy — M.I.L.F. (music is live Fridays), S.L.A.M. (Saturday live Arkansas metal). Revolution has its regular Zodiac electronic music series and a monthly “New Music Test.” Cheap beer, no cover and local music continue to remain staples at White Water on Tuesday nights. Now, we can add Thick Syrup Mondays to the mix. Starting on the 14th, Thick Syrup Records head honcho Travis McElroy will be booking and hosting local and touring acts. He's kicking off the series with three local favorites. David Slade and Matt Quinn and Burt Taggart represent for the earnest, feverish rock of the American Princes. After taking the latter half of last year off, the fiery post-punk group the Moving Front is back performing new material. Smoke Up Johnny, who released their debut on McElroy's Thick Syrup label, headline with pop-punk songs about late-night kinds of things.
