SWEET EAGLE/THE SEE/THE WICKED GOOD
9:30 p.m., Sticky Fingerz. $6.
Sweet Eagle. Live sightings of the still-new supergroup are a rarity around town. The group's young, but a consistent mind-blower, already churning out future classics like the loud-quiet-loud "Die with the Radio On." The See should be no stranger to anyone in town. They're workhogs, constantly gigging and spreading their infectious indie-rock fight songs to anyone who can holler along. (We understand they're debuting a handful of new tracks for this show, as well.) If any local outfit deserves its own Guitar Hero song-pack, it's them. Finally, The Wicked Good, aside from being one of the best named bands in town, is a riff-heavy, bar-rocking four-piece, made up of long-time Pulaski County chiefs of loud garage — David Slade (American Princes, Magic Hassle), Corey Bacon (Smoke Up Johnny), Jon Rice (Smoke Up Johnny) and Micah Fitzhugh (Moving Front). In spite of only having played as many shows as I can count on my two thumbs, the band already has its own (really nice) T-shirt and a strong buzz.
Long story short, if you're a tenderfoot to the noise around town, consider this a must-see crash course in the local soundtrack.
