8:30 p.m., Vino's, $7.

Wynne-born Chase Pagan celebrates the release of his long-anticipated debut full-length, “Bells and Whistles,” in front of a hometown crowd on Friday. Written and composed in the secluded confines of his Mountain Home dwelling and recorded in Oklahoma, the album sounds more upbeat than the singer/songwriter's brooding 2006 debut EP. It's a showcase of Pagan's multi-instrumental skill, too. He plays most of the instruments on the new album, including accordion, banjo, bass, drums, guitar and piano. According to Spin magazine, Pagan is “a new passenger on the fast track out of heartland obscurity and into the indie spotlight.” With confident pipes, stylistic dexterity and a self-described mix of soul, indie and pop, he comes to town following a tour that's taken him across half the nation, including South By Southwest. Look for him to pair classic rock edge with musical theatrics. Pagan's pals Bear Colony and Deas Vail, from Russellville, open the show.
