DREXEL AND THE BOOTLEGGERS
6 p.m., Barnes and Noble. Free.
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

High praise once again for drummers who harness their songwriting capacity and forge onward to front their own projects. Count Drexel Baker III (Trey), former Go Fast drummer-turned-Manhattanite who's touring behind his second solo effort, “Green Sky,” among them. Having traveled, performed and recorded with Wilco's Ken Coomer, former Black Crowes keyboardist Audley Freed and Counting Crows' Ben Mize, Drex loaded “Green Sky” with Little Rock alums such as Mulehead and Kevin Kerby and Battery's Geoff Curran, the Boondogs' Charles Wyrick and Jason Weinheimer, Smoke Up Johnny's Matt Floyd, Jim Mize and former Battery keyboardist and one of the most fluid bassists I've ever known, Pete Jones. Did I forget drummer Colin Brooks? Yeah, he's on the record, too. So if you miss the intimate, mind-your-manners atmosphere of the Barnes & Nobles gig (6-8 p.m., free) on McCain Boulevard in North Little Rock, fear not. A sweaty, smoky and much louder rematch is in store at the Tavern. Kevin Kerby and Battery opens both shows.
