Cross Canadian Ragweed.
Texas alt-country act Cross Canadian Ragweed plays these parts just about every month, it seems. Still, the crowds continue to flock, and we’d expect nothing short of a sell-out at Revolution, 8 p.m., $20 adv., $25 d.o.s. Oklahoma singer/songwriter Mike McClure opens.
Blue-eyed soul man Big John Miller belts out the hits at Cajun’s, 9 p.m., $5.
Chicago indie-rockers Luster come to Juanita’s, 9 p.m., $5.
As part of the Hot Springs Motorcycle Rally, Southern rock heroes from a bygone era Molly Hatchett and Blackfoot headline at Summit Arena in Hot Springs, 8 p.m., $45 (the rally registration fee gets the public in to all of the weekend’s concerts).
From Pennsylvania, up-and-coming alt-rockers Rise Phoenix Rise perform the first half of a two-night stand at West End, 9 p.m., $5.
Early in the evening, Ted Ludwig and Joe Cripps play for free at the Capital Bar and Grill. Later, the duo becomes a trio at the Afterthought, 8 p.m., $5.
