Margo Price, Psychedelic Furs and more live music this week


Friday: Margo Price, Colter Wall at Emo’s. A star of last year’s South by Southwest, Price didn’t play the official event this year, but she still turned up at Willie Nelson’s Luck Reunion last week and blazed through the best set of the day. That was just a 40-minute teaser for the full show she and her ace band will play at Emo’s. Opener Colter Wall, a Canadian upstart whose self-titled debut album came out last year, opens. $17. 8 p.m. doors. 2015 E. Riverside Drive. emosaustin.com.

Saturday: Jerry Jeff Walker at Paramount Theatre. It’s too bad Garth Brooks’ show in Austin last weekend didn’t include “Night Rider’s Lament,” the Michael Burton song Walker made famous in the mid-’70s long before Brooks recorded it in the ’90s. But then again, if we want to hear Walker’s own version, we might get that chance this weekend. The Scamp’s annual Texas Bash returns to the Paramount on Saturday ($40-$80, 8 p.m., 713 Congress Ave., austintheatre.org) before a second night in New Braunfels at Gruene Hall on Sunday (sold out, 7 p.m., 1281 Gruene Road, gruenehall.com).

Saturday: Fabulous Thunderbirds featuring Kim Wilson at Antone’s. It’s a new Antone’s location and a mostly different Thunderbirds lineup, but there’s still so much history between the T-Birds and Clifford’s namesake club that any visit from the now California-based Wilson is cause for celebration. Fittingly joining the lineup are two hometown essentials, the W.C. Clark Blues Revue and Bill Carter & the Blame. $32-$35. 9 p.m. 305 E. Fifth St. antonesnightclub.com.

Saturday: My Education album release at Sidewinder. “Schiphol,” the latest release from this long-running Austin instrumental band, starts out quietly and deliberately, fading into a short “Intro” track with droning strings, echoing guitars and the kind of spacious atmospherics that have been a hallmark of the group’s work since the beginning. Over the next few songs, the music intensifies, pulls back, and swirls into psychedelic waves, traversing a dynamic range that makes the band hard to pin down to any one style or subgenre, much to their credit. Our Austin360 Artist of the Month for March celebrates its release with an indoor/outdoor bash at Sidewinder that will include sets by Megafauna, Total Unicorn, Knifight and others. $10-$12. 7 p.m. 715 Red River St. thesidewinderaustin.com.

Wednesday: Psychedelic Furs, Robyn Hitchcock at Emo’s. Don’t get us wrong: Singer Richard Butler’s archetypal 1980s new-wave band Psychedelic Furs is still well worth seeing, even though they haven’t released a record in 25 years. But it’s hard to discount the draw on this bill of opener Hitchcock, who received the prestigious Grulke Prize for Career Act at last week’s SXSW. Hitchcock’s own acoustic version of the Furs’ smash “The Ghost in You” is stunning; perhaps he and Butler might sing it together at Emo’s? $25. 7 p.m. doors. 2015 E. Riverside Drive. emosaustin.com.

Thursday: Shovels & Rope, Matthew Logan Vasquez at Emo’s. It seems quite a few acts hung around Texas after SXSW to play non-fest shows. Shovels & Rope weren’t an official showcasing act, but the South Carolina roots-rock duo turned up at Luck Reunion in the late-afternoon “surprise guest” slot and charmed a buzzing crowd. Opener Matthew Logan Vasquez, the Delta Spirit frontman, has no problem hanging around Austin after SXSW, since he moved back here a couple of years ago. $22.50. 7 p.m. doors. 2015 E. Riverside Drive. emosaustin.com.
