JOHN PAUL KEITH AND THE ONE FOUR FIVES10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.
John Paul Keith
moved to Bluff City just a few years back, but he's certainly made all the right moves musically on his way down the path of becoming a tried-and-true Memphian. After touring around with alt-country and rock acts like Ryan Adams and the Pink Hearts and the V-Roys, he's taken up with some of the city's finest garage-rock bands, like Harlan T. Bobo; Jim Dickinson's garage rock project, Snake Eyes; and Jack Oblivian and the Tearjerkers (seen recently, awesomely at White Water). On top of all that, he also regularly steps out as the front man of John Paul Keith and the One Four Fives, a garage-rock band that's not scared to twang it up here and there. Expect covers of songs by the likes of Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly mixed with a few JPK originals, notably the single, “Lookin' for a Thrill.” It sounds like a '50s rock 'n' roll version of the Replacements.
