CENTRAL ARKANSAS ROLLER DERBY/ FRONTIER CIRCUS
5 p.m., Skate World. $10.

Arkansas's favorite performance rock miscreants (as someone at the Times once called them) the Rockin' Guys may be on semi-permanent hiatus, but the Goat Hill, Ark.-based act's particular voodoo appears to have taken root in a new group. At halftime of the Central Arkansas Roller Derby's bout with the PrissKilla Prezleys from Memphis, Frontier Circus provides the entertainment. Frontier Dan, who looks a lot like Rockin' Dan of the Rockin' Guys, is the ringmaster, singing, playing “circus” guitar and, Lord help us, the Theremin. The great Red Neckerson, of “Red Neckerson's Radio Round Up” fame (go to redneckerson.blogspot.com stat), also plays guitar and sings and folks named Lightnin' Lou and Wylie Peyote round out the group on bass and drums, respectively. Like the Rockin' Guys, but with a “psycho-Western” bent, Frontier Circus looks to take songs that you might know — like, say, Donovan's “Season of the Witch” or Webb Pierce's “There Stands the Glass” — and subvert (read: destroy) the hell out of them.
