Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys at ACL Live. It’s hard to imagine a more fitting double bill than Austin’s “Heaven”-sent hitmakers Los Lonely Boys opening for East Los Angeles legends Los Lobos, whose 1980s mainstream breakthrough helped pave the way for Mexican-American players in rock music. Los Lonely Boys released the well-received album “Revelation” last year. Los Lobos celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2014 with an “Austin City Limits” taping, and a book about them is due this fall from University of Texas Press. $30-$45. 8 p.m. 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. acl-live.com.
