THE HONORARY TITLE
9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz, $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.These indie rockers from Brooklyn
are on to something. Soulful, heartfelt lyrics combined with catchy, up-tempo melodic grooves and the low, sultry pipes of lead singer Jarrod Gorbel add up to something that's hard to compare. But with confessional lyrics about childhood and emotional imbalance, the band seems bound to pull in the emo kids. Included on this triple bill is Mississippi-born alt-country folk rocker Cory Branan, a Little Rock favorite who received the Newcomer of the Year Award by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences in 2000, before he'd even landed a contract. Branan comes to town amidst work on his third full-length and with a recent split release from Drag the River's Jon Snodgrass. The Pennsylvania-based indie trio Good Old War
completes the bill.
