CHRISTOPHER DENNY/ GOINES
9 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

Localistmagazine.com has long been fond of putting wildly different acts on the bills for its promo concerts. At its web launch party several years back, the gritty and often lewd rap collective Grim Muzik played along with Blair Harris, a lo-fi rocker still in high school; folky singer/songwriter Sarah Thomas and the Contingencies, a pop-rock foursome. That same formula is at work on the latest Localist party, a concert to celebrate the relaunch of the magazine’s website. Expect Christopher Denny, the golden-voiced local singer, to be in fine form. He’s just gotten married (to M.C. Ferguson, a founding partner in the White Water management team) and two weekends ago he triumphantly celebrated the national release of his sophomore album, “Age Old Hunger,” with two full-house shows. Pine Bluff rapper Goines co-headlines. The fashion-forward half of Suga City, Goines favors laid-back, soul-infused samples and spits with a thick Southern drawl, laying out his thoughtful lyrics deliberately, so that no one misses a word. His debut mixtape, “Lead by Example,” is easily one of the best local albums of the year thus far. Beeping Slag, a DJ collective comprised of ATM, DJ I.K.E. and TJ Deeter, the publisher of Localist.
