From Chapel Hill comes The Moaners, a well-traveled female duo who specialize in moody, punked-up Delta blues. The band gets compared to the White Stripes a lot, but that’s a useful analogue only if you chopped and screwed the Stripes and gave Jack White a little more bass in his voice. Potluck opens the show at White Water, 10 p.m., $5.
It’s a night of energetic local rock as Free Micah, Don’t Stop Please and Catskill Kids share the bill at Sticky Fingerz, 9 p.m., $5.
For the club crowd, “BLISS” returns to Deep, 10 p.m., while “ONE” continues at Sway, 9 p.m., $1 cover before 11 p.m. It’s Shop & Sip in Hillcrest, too, starting at 5 p.m.
