Lauryn Hill at Emo’s. For female hip-hop fans of a certain age, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” released in 1998, is a landmark, a watershed moment when the young former Fugee defiantly spoke our hopes, dreams and all our pain with such stunning power and eloquence it literally changed our lives. Hill didn’t pan out to be the industry game changer we hoped she would be and we watched in horror as her own career imploded. She hasn’t had a significant release in over 15 years, but it doesn’t matter. Loyal fans will turn out in droves to hear the songs that set them free. $57-$60. 8 p.m. doors. 2015 E. Riverside Drive. emosaustin.com. — D.S.S.

Croce at 8 p.m.
