The last time the Polaris Prize-nominated, Canadian trio of Elliott Brood came to Maxine's, we went on a blind whim and were treated to one of the best surprises we've had in years. The band brings its Tom Waits-styled, multi-instrumental carnival back to the Hot Springs venue, 8 p.m., $8 adv., $10 d.o.s. Don't miss this one if you can help it. (Check out a live take on "Write It All Down For You" on YouTube.)
Self-described "Ozarkansas" act 3 Penny Acre offers its rustic take on bluegrass and roots music for a free concert at Laman Library, 7 p.m.
Juke-joint rockers with a slice of Stones soul, The Happen-Ins of Austin, Tex., return to Stickyz, 9 p.m., $5.
And the weekly "Posh" party takes to Juanita's for "The Pink Edition," a ladies night featuring music from Memphis' DJ Swagga. 9 p.m.
