Friday To-Do: New Found Glory / Saves the Day



New Found Glory.

7:30 p.m., The Village. $18 adv., $21 d.o.s.

I won't name names, but there's an unspoken understanding that a chunk of Little Rock's biggest music snobs and musicians intend to indulge their inner 15-year-old by forgoing the usual Friday night shows to dive into The Village. Like Southern preachers in a liquor store, there will be a lot of silent nodding and not much eye contact. Let's face it, for people of a certain, small age group, bands like The Ataris, The Get Up Kids and Friday's headliners occupied a now questionable lump of our, ahem, their CD wallets. But it was inescapable: For two awkward years before the end of the century it seemed dudes singing like, about and for girls echoed in mom basements and Mazda Miatas everywhere. So if you're through being cool for a night, check out the show. It may not be something to write home about, but here's betting you'll be able to spot the nostalgia peeking out through lowered hats and sunglasses towards the back of the room. Join us, er, them. Hellogoodbye and Fireworks share the bill.
