9 p.m., Revolution. $5.

Localist, the Little Rock-based music, arts and culture magazine, lives on, miraculously. It was founded in 2003 by local promoter TJ Deeter as a print glossy focused on covering local culture that undeservedly existed in the margins. Dozen of people, including me for a time, collaborated to publish it. No one got paid. In fact, a lot of people lost money. The print edition migrated to a webzine, which went through several incarnations before Deeter shut it down last summer. Yet, Davis Clement, who served as editor in the last web phase, wasn't ready to quit. For some time, he and a group of writers, photographers and artists have labored, again pro bono, to revive the pub, and now, amazingly, in this doomsday era for magazines, it exists in a 56-page print version. Friday, three of Little Rock's finest local acts, Magic Hassle, Jonathan Wilkins and the See, come together to help Localist celebrate its new release. Now publisher emeritus, TJ Deeter mans the ones and twos, too. Admission includes a copy of the new issue.
