Saturday To-Do: American Aquarium



10 p.m., White Water Tavern, $5.

Tavern favorites from Raleigh, N.C., American Aquarium, return in support of their latest release from Little Rock's Last Chance Records, “Dances For the Lonely.” The band's combination of keen lyrical storytelling with a mix of piano, Hammond B3, accordion, pedal steel and double-kick drum has inspired comparisons to bands such as Whiskeytown, Son Volt and the Old 97s. But expect an introduction of new tunes like “Good Fight” and “Ain't Goin' to the Bar Tonight” to showcase the range and roadhouse vibe that sets the shaggy six-piece apart. Joey Kneiser, lead singer of Glossary, opens with a solo acoustic show.
