HANA PESTLE WITH BEN MOODY
9 p.m., Juanita’s. $8.
You’ll recognize that second name. The Little Rock native co-founded Evanescence and stuck through most of its meteoric rise, before going his own way to write and produce for the likes of Kelly Clarkson, Celine Dion, Avril Lavigne and Lindsay Lohan. For the last several years, Moody’s been working with Pestle, a 19-year-old Billings, Mont., native, who, in a goth-y black dress, looks an awful lot like a certain someone from Moody’s past. She’s got big pipes, too, which she shows off on her wide-ranging debut EP. There’s the epic rocker one might expect from a Moody protege, but also an acoustic anthem that’s probably bound to underpin some dramatic moment on “The Hills” and an impressive cover of Leonard Cohen’s mournful “Hallelujah.” This could be an early preview of someone you’ll be hearing on the radio in the near future. And maybe Moody, who’s long, long been on the verge of releasing his solo debut, will preview some of his own songs. The show’s open to ages 18 and older. This is sure to be a hot ticket.
