Fronted by an ex-Mulehead, Dave Raymond and Present Company, the new jacks in Max Recordings' bullpen, take their twang-rock to the Sticky Fingerz stage along with Kevin Kerby and Battery, 9 p.m.

Downtown Music does what they do best by hosting a night of really loud, really heavy music by Zucura, Black Market Ministry, Buzzardstein and — don't be fooled by their unassuming name — Jungle Juice, 8 p.m., $6.

And Star Bar celebrates its one-year anniversary with a DJ set by Cameron Holifield, 9 p.m.

SATURDAY, APRIL 18

Juanita's hosts a fundraiser for Arkansas Children's Hospital with music by Jessica 7, Wishtribe, Knee Deep and Attack the Mind, 9 p.m., $10.

We're hoping the front man/drummer keeps his junk-hugging bicycle shorts in the van this time when Cowboy Mouth, the long-tenured, New Orleans rock act, comes to Revolution, 9 p.m., $10 adv., $12 d.o.s.

River Market young gun Bill Street has “The Truth: Beauty and the Beast Edition,” with performances by Seanfresh, D'Nique Renae, Epiphany, Osyrus, Bijoux, J. White and Jeron, 9 p.m., $10.

Little Rock sends a handful of our local sages down to Hot Springs when The Boondogs and the Greg Spradlin Outfit Chris Michaels and the Cranks take it to Maxine's alongside Andrew Anderson, the new transplant who deserves every bit of buzz he's getting right now, 9 p.m.
