AMERICAN PRINCES/ SMOKE UP JOHNNY/THE SUBTEENS
10 p.m., White Water.

Wow. Dig this bill. In one corner, you've got Little Rock's biggest band on the national scene, newly bolstered by topping Magnet magazine's year-end album chart and by signing with the management team behind Bonaroo. Every time the Princes play, they bring a crowd. In another corner, there's Little Rock's most beloved bar-rockers, Smoke Up Johnny, who've never played a show that didn't inspire at least a few dozen people to wig the hell out — bouncing, fist-pumping, raising beers high. And in another, you've got the Subteens, Memphis' kings of three-chord hedonism. Like Smoke Up Johnny, they specialize in fist-pumping hard rock, full of sing-a-long hooks and lyrics about the fast life. You can get a healthy taste of the band at thesubteens.com, where the band's first album, “Burn Your Cardigan,” and latest single, “Never Gonna Happen,” are available for free download.
