THE GOOD FEAR
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.
From the dark depths of the studio, the Good Fear emerges, hopefully hirsute and wearing sunglasses. A decade ago (or maybe it was more like nine months — who can remember?), the Fayetteville-based band started recording a follow-up to its widely beloved debut, “Keep in Touch.” Word from the Good Fear camp is that the record is finally finished, but I heard that in the fall, too, just before head knob twiddler Zach Holland (call him Axl) headed back into the studio. So you can't cop the new record and, according to Axl, the band won't play many new songs, but it's the Good Fear! Live on stage! One of our state's finest bands! They play infrequently! Look for a teeming crowd, singing along to the band's anthemic brand of Southern rock. If that's not enough pageantry for you, Justin Carr's Ghost Company opens. Carr, the former lead singer of Tin Fire Radio, sings exclusively of ghosts, with backing help by the Damn Bullets and dancing girls.
