AMERICAN PRINCES
9 p.m., Revolution. $10.

Everyone's favorite possibly-soon-to-blow-up local rockers return to Little Rock for the second time in a month. Even with guitarist and vocalist Collins Kilgore living in New York, the band convenes at home with just about seasonal regularity. With shows booked through April at all the clubs in New York you would go to if you lived in New York — Bowery Electric, Mercury Lounge, Arlene's Grocery — best count on this being your last opportunity to catch the Princes until it's sweaty hot outside. They're back in town after a week at SXSW (where, undoubtedly, it is already sweaty hot), where they played an early gig sponsored by buzzy music blog Aquarium Drunkard, a nighttime showcase, a bill with 14 other bands you've definitely never heard of and the It-tent of the whole shebang, the Fader Fort (they opened it; Kanye closed it). So they should be ready to rock. The See, fresh from an impressive showing in the Times Musicians Showcase, opens the show. Despite earlier promises, the trio won't celebrate the release of its debut CD, recorded, incidentally, by the Princes Will Boyd. Look for a headlining gig for that in the near future. The show's open to ages 18 and older.
