LAUNDRY FOR THE APOCALYPSE
9:30 p.m. White Water Tavern. $5.
Laundry for the Apocalypse might be relatively new in the Central Arkansas musical milieu, but the band has wasted approximately no time in carving out its own sonic territory. The group's blend of dramatic rock and catchy, buzz-saw pop earned it a spot in the finals at the 2012 Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase.
Frontman Aaron Sarlo is a veteran of many other fine Arkansas rock acts, and the rest of the guys in the band (Matt Rice, John David Hilliard, Drew Wilkerson and Adrian Brigman) are all excellent players who have an intuitive grasp on that whole quiet-loud-quiet dynamic that The Pixies pioneered. LFTA has already recorded several tunes for their debut album, "I Killify You," which should be out sometime soon.
After the jump, check out Laundry for the Apocalypse playing "Carnal" live.
