island-infused singer/songwriter, 7 p.m.
Loop wizard Zach Deputy is performing an out-of-character singer-songwriter set at Awendaw Green this week. “It’s just me and my acoustic guitar this time,” Deputy says. “I’m so incredibly comfortable doing my usual loop thing that I could probably take a nap on stage. This situation kind of makes me nervous.” Although he hasn’t put out a new album since 2011’s Another Day, Deputy says he plans to release a series of EPs later this year. For now, he’s enjoying the chance to get back to his roots as a singer-songwriter. “This show won’t be me hyping up a huge dance party,” he says. “It’ll be like I’m hanging out with you by a fire, rapping with friends and talking to people directly from stage. It’s much more intimate and down to the basics.” —Stratton Lawrence
