Warren Hood at ABGB. Fiddler and bandleader Hood was typically low-key about his group celebrating its three-year anniversary of this popular weekly residency gig recently, suggesting residencies really start hitting their peak around year five. Hood knows the territory, having played many of them himself after being raised amid the long-running residences his late father Champ Hood held down here in the 1980s and ’90s. No need to wait till 2020, though: This is a great gig now, one of the best deals in town. 6:30 p.m. Aug. 15. Free. 1305 W. Oltorf St. theabgb.com. — Peter Blackstock
