Lissie at Emo’s. At an afternoon South by Southwest set last month, the folk pop singer brought a husky-voiced chill reminiscent of Stevie Nicks. Arming herself with an acoustic guitar and looking like she just got back from a chakra-centering desert hike, the singer’s dust-in-the-throat voice and able strumming intertwined beautifully with her electric guitarist’s wavy vibrations. We expect she’ll build on this vibe for her full-length Emo’s show. Skrizzly Adams opens. $20-$23. Doors at 8 p.m. 2015 E. Riverside Drive. emosaustin.com. — Eric Webb
