Monday To-Do: Retribution Gospel Choir



9 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $7.

Fronted by the Best Name in Rock Music titleholder, Alan Sparhawk, Retribution Gospel Choir is touring on the release of its second album, “2,” and treating Little Rock to another big Monday night show that our small city probably wouldn't get on a more lucrative weekend day. While Sparhawk and fellow Choir member Matt Livingston's more well-known project, Low, specializes in (read: has absolutely mastered) heart-wrenching and gorgeous “slowcore rock,” Retribution Gospel Choir works along the lines of Crazy Horse or My Morning Jacket. The guitars, the drums, the voices — all big and triumphant. What can I say? Go take the opportunity to see some really talented, established old hands practice their craft. Wade Ogle and the Sea Shall Free Them open.
