Music

Evan Johns memorial tribute at Hole in the Wall. When Austin guitarist Evan Johns died March 11, the city was just gearing up for another South by Southwest stretch, which made it hard for a fitting memorial event to take place quickly. His friends persevered, and the result is a strong lineup of musicians with ties to Johns’ stellar career. Local groups Churchwood, the Gay Sportscasters and the LeRoi Brothers join the D.C. Weenies, featuring former Dead Kennedys frontman Jello Biafra backed by an ace crew of roots-rockers. Rounding out the bill are renowned Dallas one-man band Homer Henderson and others. The $10 cover charge benefits the SIMS Foundation. 8 p.m. Saturday. 2538 Guadalupe St. holeinthewallaustin.com. — Peter Blackstock
