JONATHAN WILKINS
10 p.m., White Water Tavern. $5.

Originally from St. Louis, this singer/songwriter, who you'll often find working the door at White Water, found his way into Central Arkansas's vibrant folk punk scene through Conway, where he schooled at Hendrix. All the guys who run White Water, Mat Mahar, Ben Nichols (at least in part) — they all came through Faulkner County, too. Since his college days, Wilkins, who writes smart, funny, confessional songs and sings them somewhere between a growl and a shout, has performed out often and self-released homemade material, much of which is available for free download at jonathanwilkins.com, at brisk pace, too. But “Highway Robbery,” the release of which he's celebrating on Friday, is his first, real-deal official album. Recorded with Will Boyd (American Princes), Isaac Alexander (Big Silver, the Easys) and Todd Beene (Glossary), the album comes out via fledgling local label Last Chance Records. It's $8. Dallas country-tinged rockers Slider Pines open.

You can download their latest EP for free here.
