Greg Cartwright has plowed through a few 21st birthday bashes before, so he knows what plays well with a last-call crowd.

“At this time of night, it’s best to stick to the really retarded stuff,” Cartwright, Reigning Sound‘s frontman, told a crowd at the Jackpot before starting an encore a little after 1 a.m.

The band helped Love Garden Sounds, Lawrence’s record store institution, celebrate its 21st birthday with a set of rock-and-roll screamers till just about closing time. The Memphis four-piece roared through a set of its 100-miles-per-hour-on-a-dark-highway tunes as the headliner of the birthday bash.
