Jackie Venson at One-2-One Bar. Local superstar Gary Clark Jr. is carrying the torch of Austin’s electric blues legacy, but Jackie Venson is gaining speed, ready for the hand off. The 25-year-old ax-slinger first picked up a six-string less than five years ago, but she plays with exceptional expression and emotional depth. The evening will unfold as a ladies’ night, with Venson joined by fellow blues singer Samantha Lee and the Family Tree and a solo set from Qi Dada from Riders Against the Storm. Proceeds benefit Dub Academy. $15 advance, $20 at the door. 7:30 p.m. 1509 S. Lamar Blvd. No. 600. one2onebar.com — D.S.S.
