Sunday music picks: A Farewell Steamboat Reunion, Bombay Bicycle Club 

By Peter Blackstock and Deborah Sengupta Stith

A Farewell Steamboat Reunion at Threadgill’s South. Fifteen years and eight reunions since Steamboat ended its run as the anchor of East Sixth Street during its most vibrant era, former proprietor Danny Crooks is billing this latest reunion as the final one. “I just decided it’s time to put it to bed,” he said recently via Facebook message. “I didn’t want it to be just another Steamboat reunion every year.” Bands from the club’s heyday scheduled to perform are Sister 7, Vallejo, Johnny Law, Raging Saint, Steamroller, and a Pushmonkey tribute called Three33. It wouldn’t feel like Steamboat without a killer jam at the end, so the “Sunday Monsters” will close things out with Will Sexton, Paul LeMond, Stephen Doster, Glenn Fukunaga, Richard Bowden, Tommy Taylor and more. The show benefits the Austin Music Foundation and Helen’s Casa Alde. $20. 2-10 p.m. 301 W. Riverside Drive. — P.B.
